MantrialingUK instructors abide by a strict code of ethics and that is not to go out on real-life searches unless operationally qualified by a government body such as SARDA, NSARDA, BMA or Lowland Rescue or have been assessed by the police to do so.

However, the same life-saving skills used by search and rescue have been adapted into an activity sport for anyone who wants to spend quality time with their dog, exercise their mind and tap into their natural instincts.
