What is NASDA?


The North American Sport Dog Association (NASDA) was formed in 2016 to showcase the natural abilities of dogs to assist people in searching, hunting, and locating.


Dogs are able to pick up odors up to 100,000 times better than humans. NASDA was formed to demonstrate the breadth of these olfactory abilities. Trials are designed to resemble both historic working and competitive field work as closely as possible.


NASDA Working Dog Trials offer an opportunity for all dogs to engage in scent games previously open to only a select few breeds and working dogs. Competing teams can get titles and championships that showcase their merits and abilities within hunt and search situations.


NASDA offers urban and field search trials in several main classes:

Lost Item


Urban search for lost items such as wallets, keys and other personal objects.

Shed Dog


Field search for naturally shedded antlers.

Trailing Brace


Field search for rats where a team of

two dogs follow a scent trail leading

to the hide.

Urban Locating


Urban search for rats contained safely and comfortably in a protective box.

Trailing & Locating


Field search for rats contained in a box where a scent trail leading to the hide has been laid.

Lost Item & Urban
Locating Games 


Multiple fun variations on the Lost Item and the Urban Locating classes.

Atlas Sport Dogs is a NASDA approved club and is owned and operated by Ady Dudas who is a NASDA licensed judge. We organize trial events and we travel all over the country sharing this fun and engaging sport with other clubs or groups of people who are interested in participating and titling their dogs in all the classes offered by NASDA.
