NEWS

2 RETIREMENTS 

 

Sad news this month as two of the Wasdale Searchdogs retire after a combined total of 18 years on the callout list.

 

Steve Walter has retired Rosie and Penny Kirby has retired Pippi (below Left).  This will be a loss to the Wasdale team and the wider Cumbrian teams although Penny still continues as a handler with her younger searchdog Olli.

 

We wish them both plenty of fun, fuss and rest in their retirement.

WHO ARE WE?

 

We are a specialist team dedicated to training and deploying search dogs within the Lake District Mountains and Fells to search for missing people. 

 

All Lake District mountain rescue search dog handlers are operational members of mountain rescue teams within  the Lake District - all must already be competent in first aid and survival in a mountainous environment. 

 

Handlers choose to train a searchdog to assist their own Mountain Rescue teams and other teams within the Lake District Region.

 

We are an entirely voluntary organsiations and rely solely on the generosity of public donations.
