April 2019

On Thursday 11th April 2019 the Southern Peninsula VIEW Club welcomed guest speaker Julie Cowan from Search and Rescue Dogs Australia (SARDA) a volunteer not-for-profit organisation that uses dogs to locate survivors.

SARDA search dogs locate survivors by air scenting; they do not track. The dogs are trained to search off lead. They scan the area to pick up the scent of human breath, and then narrow in on the source. Working off lead, they are able to cover large areas very efficiently.

Julie provided an informative and very entertaining presentation on her organisations activities and achievements.  Julie was accompanied by fellow volunteer Kerry Hanson and Tank a fully trained Black Labrador.
