**SARDA CALLOUT**

SARDA Ireland we’re tasked by An Garda Síochána to a missing person search in Co. Tipperary in the last 30 minutes. Thankfully, as our dog teams were preparing to leave their homes and work, the missing person was located and SARDA Ireland were stood down.
SARDA Ireland would like to extend their deepest sympathies to the family of Stephen Cunningham, who was sadly recovered after an extensive 5 month search in Co. Galway. Rest in Peace.
Come meet Cassu, a trainee air-scenting search dog outside Paul Street Shopping Centre 🐶
A very merry Christmas to all our followers! Thank you to everyone for your support in 2021, it’s been a busy year, but as ever, we are glad we can help.

We hope you all have a safe Christmas 🎅🏼

Here is Blue, doing her very best to stay still for her pawtrait, but her puppy ways got the better of her. I think we can all agree that she is cute though!
Today is International Volunteers Day 🥳 But there are more to thank than you might think!

SARDA Ireland have an amazing team of search dogs and handlers that respond to missing person searches across Ireland. 🙌🏻

We have multiple prospective and trainee dog teams that are working their way through training. 💪🏻

We have the best Dogs Bodies ever, who hide for our dogs during training. 🤟🏻

We have amazing support from Mountain Rescue Ireland and National Search and Rescue Dog Association (NSARDA) who provide training standards, insurances and everything else that’s needed to keep the charity going. 👏🏼

These are all volunteers, nobody is paid in these roles, and they all spend countless hours ensuring that SARDA Ireland continue to provide the best service that we can. We have been around since 1987, we are the longest standing search dog group in Ireland, and we hope that we can continue to provide this service for years to come! 🤞🏻

We have the best supporters: the public are incredibly kind and their donations ensure that we can continue to provide a specialised and high-standard search dog service to the people of Ireland. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

We are also very kindly supported by local landowners, Coillte, National Parks and Wildlife Service, NUI Galway and many others who provide training areas for us. 👏🏼

When a call comes in that someone is missing and we deploy a search dog team, it’s thanks to everyone above, and plenty of other people that I’ve forgotten to mention, that we are able to respond. 

It’s not only a team effort, but it’s a national effort 💪🏻

Thank you everyone! 🙌🏻

Over the last few days, SARDA Ireland held a national trailing training weekend had the absolute pleasure of having Tim Sherlock from Search and Rescue Dogs Association (SARDA Wales) visiting to assess how our trainee trailing dogs were progressing. 

SARDA Wales are a centre of excellence when it comes to trailing and this was evident from the excellent feedback that was given to each of our trainee handlers.

We started early on the Saturday morning, where Tim observed each dog team set up and carry out a run at their current training stage. After each run, the handler was given feedback by Tim. As the day progressed, each dog team had multiple runs, where they put the advice they were given into practice, with great progress being made all around. One of our trainee trailing dog teams, Jarlath and Shadow had their first 3 person line up, which is one of the final scent discrimination stages that a dog has to pass. Shadow took to the new stage like a duck to water and aced every run. After a busy day, the team headed off for a well earned dinner. 

Sunday morning held a different start to the day. While travelling to the training area, a number of team members came across a medical emergency which required our assistance. With a wide range of medical skills, from first aid right up to paramedic, our members were able to provide a high level of care until the National Ambulance Service (NAS) arrived on scene. 

Once we arrived to the training area, the team sat down, held a debrief over a cup of tea, and had a chat about the events of the morning. After a rest, we got back to training, and continued in a similar format to the previous day. 

As Jarlath and Shadow continued to ace every 3 person line up, they progressed into blind runs, to test the dogs ability. After 3 successful consecutive runs, Jarlath and Shadow were signed off on the final scent discrimination stages, and moved on to the trailing stages. This test is a big deal for trainee trailing dog teams, and Jarlath and Shadow are the first Irish trainee dog team to progress to this stage. Not only is it a huge achievement for them, but also for the entire SARDA Ireland team! (See photo below of the very first trail for SARDA Ireland)

We would like to sincerely thank Tim and SARDA Wales, supported by National Search and Rescue Dog Association (NSARDA), for the excellent training opportunity, the weekend was filled with non-stop learning and progress. We would also like to thank the landowner who graciously provided several large fields for the training weekend, we really appreciate their support.
