We are all volunteers who enjoy working with dogs and are committed to Search and Rescue. Many of our handlers are members of Mountain Rescue or Coastguard Teams.
Dogsbodies: It is impossible to train a search dog if they have no one to search for! SARDA Wales is very lucky to have a great team of people we call dogsbodies. They turn up at every training session to lie in fields, under caravans or under boulders until the dogs find them. If you think this is something you would enjoy click here.
The Call Outs
We get called out to about 70-90 jobs a year where the dogs have been requested by the Police or by Mountain Rescue teams to help search for missing people.
To train a search dog takes about 3 years from new puppy to qualified Search Dog. You can read more about how we train our air scenting and our trailing search dogs on the training page here.
