On Friday 23 March, Countryside Management Level 3 students were visited by Andrew Colau, a representative from the Mountain Rescue Association, who brought along his two search dogs.
Andrew gave an introduction on what it's like to work with search dogs in a high pressure environment and explained the techniques he needs to put in place to train them effectively. Countryside Management tutor, Nigel Labdon, asked Andrew to come in so the students could see a different side to working with dogs as they are used to mainly working with sheep and gun dogs.
