Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England

Who we are

Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England (MRSDE) also known as SARDA(England) is an organisation dedicated to the training of dogs, and their handlers to find lost, injured and vulnerable people in both mountaineous and urban locations.

At MRSDE, we train our dogs as”Air scenting” dogs.

Dogs noses have 300 million receptors in those nose, compared to around 6 million for us, and the area of their brains set up to process smells is 40 times larger than ours.

Due to their superior sense of smell, dogs can pick up the scent a person a ¼ of a mile away, or more, and with the right training, can guide their handler back to the source of the smell.
