Massive congratulations to our newest green tag teams, Jen with Scout and Conall with Jager who received their tags this weekend after passing their stage one training. They passed their stock, obedience and sequence tests and now move onto stage 2 training.  
Well done to both teams and to everyone who helped get them to this stage. It takes the organisation as a whole to get teams through. Great to see everyone helping each other. The future is looking good for SARDA Ireland โ˜บ๏ธImage attachmentImage attachment

Youd never know what youd find hiding in your shed. Lindsay found this hiking jacket from 1988. Must be from just after SARDA Ireland started out. What a cool patch. Thanks for sharing.

Dogsbodying essentials:

Ever wondered what a dogsbody needs with them when they're spending hours on the hill?

โ–ช๏ธ We supply every dogsbody with a kit bag equipped with a bivvy, roll mat & sleeping bag
โ–ช๏ธ Radio
โ–ช๏ธ Layers
โ–ช๏ธ Packed lunch - Some dogsbodies favourite part of the day - we supply lunch, we can't have our dogsbodies getting hungry!
โ–ช๏ธ Thermos
โ–ช๏ธ Entertainment of choice - books, music, sketchbook or nothing... Some dogsbodies just like to nap or lie and look at the sky.

Fancy volunteering for a day or a weekend? Accommodation and meals are provided. Email dogsbody@sardawales.org.uk
