The Partners We Work With

NSARDA – National Search & Rescue Dog Association


The specialist Search Dog Team at Serve On have deployed internationally to Iran and Turkey and currently have search dogs under training that are due for assessment to be able to be utilised both within the UK and overseas.  They are an important part of the Serveon Search and Rescue Team as they accelerate the search process by locating casualties or by narrowing the search area after which the Search Team are able to use their specialist technical search equipment to pin point a casualty.    VISIT WEBSITE

NSARDA – National Search & Rescue Dog Association

1307184516669Mountain Search Dogs, in the form of the Search And Rescue Dog Associations (SARDA) lead the way in the use of Search Dogs to locate injured and lost mountaineers, the first groups being set up in the mid sixties. While there have been many handlers and trainers who have been instrumental in lifting the standard to what we know of today, it is impossible to name a single handler apart from Hamish MacInnes who first brought the air scenting search dog from Switzerland. He set up a training course in Glen Coe and the first modern air scenting Search Dogs appeared. From this first course the associations of Scotland, Wales and England were formed.

Today we have Search Dogs playing a vital role in the search for lost and injured mountaineers as well as in rural, urban and lowland areas within the United Kingdom, Isle of Man and Ireland. The National Search And Rescue Dog Association (NSARDA) was formed from these SARDA Associations and the use of search dogs spread. A great deal of thanks is due to the open mindedness of handlers to see that with a high standard of training for both dogs and handlers. A correctly trained and qualified search dog would reduce the time to search and return loved ones back home. VISIT WEBSITE
