During this hot weather, we would like to thank our parent organisation National Search and Rescue Dog Association (NSARDA) for these Ruffwear cooling jackets. They do a great job of keeping our dogs cool! 

Remember, itโ€™s just too hot to be walking or exercising your dog during the day! Stick to very early in the morning or late at night, when it is coolest!Image attachment

๐ŸคฉPUPPY UPDATE NO. 1 - Hunter๐Ÿคฉ

A number of SARDA Ireland handlers have new puppies and we thought that you all would like to hear a little about them! We will share some info over the coming days/weeks.

Hunter is a sproker (springer cocker spaniel mix) that has big hopes to be a trailing search dog one day! Sprokers are high-energy dogs and Hunter has been directing his energy into learning scent discrimination, an important skill for any trailing dog!

Hunter's owners are members of Bonmahon Coast Guard, and have been busy training him whilst also responding to coast guard callouts.

His owners say he is quite helpful, he has helped with painting the house, and even does his fair share of homeschooling the kids, (although his lessons seem to focus on understanding scent movement in wind๐Ÿ˜…).

He is very obedient, and exercises within his 5km! Good Boy Hunter!๐Ÿ™Œ

We can't wait to see what is in store for Hunter in the future! ๐Ÿ‘

What a cute puppy! An A for effort for this good boy for helping paint the house ๐Ÿ˜…

We were bodies for a day over a year ago with plans to train two collie pups for SAR. Not long after one of our pups Rogue was stolen and we never got her back ๐Ÿ˜“

We're all so looking forward seeing Hunter grow up to being a SARDA Dog ๐Ÿ• some day. We'll do everything that we can to make that happen for Hunter. Even teaching him to climb ๐Ÿ˜„

Good luck Hunter ๐Ÿ‘‹

What a beautiful Sprocker ๐Ÿ˜

SARDA Ireland were tasked to assist in the search for a missing man in the Kilmaley area earlier today. 

As dog team Gerry and Fia were responding to the callout, the missing man was found safe and well.

Having spent over 24 hours outdoors, the elderly man was found by a member of the public and later transported to University Hospital Limerick for assessment. Itโ€™s understood that he is suffering from hypothermia but is otherwise in good health.

Welcome Cooper, SARDA Ireland's newest pup recruit!

Many of our followers will remember our post from last June about Bonnie, one of our trainee search dogs that died suddenly after a poisoning incident in the Knockmealdowns. Bonnie was a tragic loss for Jim, her handler, and a huge loss to the SARDA Ireland trailing dog team.

Although nothing will ever be able to replace Bonnie or take away the pain of losing a dog in such a way, we were so pleased to see Jim welcome a new pup to the family. ๐Ÿ•

Cooper is a black lab, bred by Corrib Gundogs, and is just 9 weeks old! He is going to be training to be a SARDA Ireland trailing dog, where he learn to follow specific scent trails left by missing people. He is an absolute cracker and we have no doubt that Jim and Cooper will go on to do amazing things!

We wish Jim and Cooper all the best for the future and look forward to watching them progress in their search dog training. ๐Ÿ•

Please like and share to spread the good news ๐Ÿ˜Š

2 new green tag dogs!!! ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ๐Ÿฅณ

We have good news! We have 2 new green tag dog teams to introduce you to! Say hello to Audrey and Bailey, and Shannon and Voyage!! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Both teams passed their stock and obedience test in the last week with flying colours and we couldnโ€™t be prouder of them! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Bailey is training to be an air-scenting dog and Voyage is training to be a trailing dog! They are based in Mayo and Galway where they train with one of our qualified handlers, Jarlath! ๐ŸŽพ

We figure that there is not enough good news out there some days, so this is our contribution! We are looking forward to watching these dogs progress along with the other 7 green tag dogs that qualified this summer! ๐Ÿ˜ƒImage attachment

** Callout 35 and 36 **

SARDA Ireland were talked by An Garda Sรญochรกna today, shortly before 7.30pm, to assist in a missing child search in Cork. Just as our handlers and dogs were mobilising, the happy news came in that the child had been found safe and well.

At 9.15pm, a second call out came in regarding a missing vulnerable male in Cork. Dog teams Louise and Lyla, Eadaoin and Murphy and Mick and Ziggy responded with Martina and Ella on standby. A short while ago the good news came through that the missing person was found safe and well.

Well done to SARDA team members Edwin and Dorothy who responded as support for the dog teams and to Adrian who took and coordinated the call. Excellent teamwork from everyone involved, a credit to our organisation.
