Search and Rescue dogs are employed in a wide range of scenarios to locate missing people, in the mountains, moors, countryside, towns and villages as well as on collapsed buildings or in water. With their amazing sense of smell, speed and agility these remarkable dogs can typically do the work of 20 foot searchers and many more in poor conditions or at night. Find out more about them here .
