9781904524755: Search and Rescue Dogs: The Remarkable Story of Search and Rescue Dogs - From the Mountains to the Shore

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. Neville Sharp BEM MSc. President, SARDA England.

About the Author:

BILL JENNISON has been working with search and rescue dogs for over 30 years, since qualifying with his first dog, a German Shepherd called Jay, with SARDA England in 1981. During that time, he has trained three dogs - first Jay, then two Border Collies - the last two with SARDA Southern Scotland. Despite retiring his third dog, Jenny, in 2006, Bill remains active in the world of search and rescue dogs as an assessor and training officer for SARDA Southern Scotland, where he has also served as secretary and training coordinator. His mountain rescue career has spanned the hills and moorlands of the Yorkshire Dales and Lancashire, as well as the mountains of Scotland. He retired from Lomond MRT in 2010. He holds the Summer MLC and was actively involved with DofE expedition training from the early 1970s until 2010. A retired biology teacher, he now wanders very slowly around the Scottish hills. BOB SHARP has been involved with Scottish mountain rescue for over 35 years and has attended well over 400 rescues during that period. For twelve years, he was team/deputy leader of the Lomond MRT, also serving as vice chairman, secretary, editor and statistician to the Mountain Rescue Committee of Scotland. In a wider context, he has served on the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, Mountain Leader Training Scotland and the Scottish Mountain Safety Forum. Now retired from his post as Reader in Sport Studies at Strathclyde University, with specialist interests in research methods and skill psychology, Bob has more time to devote to his writing and research consultancy. He is a keen dog lover - collies, of course. Already a 'compleatist', he is currently accompanying his dog, Breac on a second round of the Munros.
