Search & Rescue Dogs Australia, primarily train on Bunurong land of the Kulin Nation. However, our deployments and specialist training can take us across many nations and environments.

We are honoured to be able to do what we do, and we acknowledge the traditional owners, their connection to the lands and waterways that we walk on.
