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.
