Search Dog Organization of America (SDONA)'s mission is simple: To develop and nurture a program grounded in science-based functional training where K9 handlers and their dogs can train, test, and challenge themselves to the highest level possible.
To support this mission, SDONA is committed to the following:
Providing sound, useful and functional educational opportunities for SAR Dog handlers and trainers.
Providing realistic, skill based operational testing opportunities that meet internationally “benchmarked” standards.
