Synopsis : LOVE em or hate em, there s no getting away from the fact that dogs have one very large asset that no human goes anywhere near matching a very big nose! This alone has ensured that dogs play a vital role within mountain rescue in the UK. Laced with a myriad of fascinating photographs and doggie tales , historical and contemporary, this book cannot fail to educate and inspire all who enjoy the great outdoors - Heather Morning MA. Handler, SARDA Scotland and Mountain Safety Adviser with the Mountaineering Council of Scotland. A unique insight into the work of search dogs, this book provides a comprehensive, in-depth guide to the history and development of search and rescue dogs and the heroic work undertaken by the handlers within mountain and lowland rescue. Training and working a search dog is a labour of love for volunteers, which at times can offer the most rewarding conclusion with the saving of life in extreme conditions. As a complete source of information about working search dogs, combined with numerous stories of real incidents and a touch of humour, this book is a must.
Most significant SARDA book ever published in the UK - For anyone considering training up a search and rescue dog anywhere in the world this book is a "must read". It is brilliantly put together, entertaining and yet very, very informative. Even for those just interested in dogs it contains a lot of knowledge and they will gain a unique insight into doggy psychology from this book. --Stephen Austin, SARDA, S. Scotland.
At last a book about what we do and told by the people who do the searching. A great effort by Bill Jennison & Bob Sharp. --Harold Burrows, Chairman, National Search & Rescue Dog Association.
