This weekend, Tulla travelled up to the Lake District to take part in a talk and demo for the LDMRSDA seminar 2016.
Along with DVSD dog handlers Dave Marsh and Mike Dermody, we explained the ins and outs of’ Drown Victim search’ and then did a demo showing the very start of training, to a boat search.
It is important for other Search and Rescue teams to see and understand what these dogs can do, so they feel educated enough to call on us in a live search situation.
We were made very welcome and are hoping to organise a training weekend with the Lakes team later this summer.
