All ready to go!
Dogs aren’t just great pets, they’re also amazing workers. There’s therapy dogs, service dogs, police dogs, fire dogs, and the list goes on. With different heightened senses, dogs are able to do a lot more than humans. And these avalanche rescue dogs are no different. See how they put their canine senses to work!
These dogs start their training at 10 weeks old! They’re trained to sniff out people buried by avalanches.
“Let’s go! I gotta practice so I can get better at finding people!”
