Role: Operational Mountain Rescue Search Dog

Merryn is an air scented search dog with Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England. Our neighbouring team’s of East Cornwall, Exmoor and Dartmoor Rescue Group also have fully-trained dogs and handlers ready to deploy.

Dog handlers are firstly Mountain Rescue team members but they provide an additional and valuable resource for the team when it comes to searching for missing persons.

To be considered for training as a dog handler, an individual must have been on the callout list of a recognised Mountain Rescue team for a minimum of one year, have the support of their team, and have been a regular dogsbody on national and local training courses.
