Dogsbodying essentials:

Ever wondered what a dogsbody needs with them when they're spending hours on the hill?

▪️ We supply every dogsbody with a kit bag equipped with a bivvy, roll mat & sleeping bag
▪️ Radio
▪️ Layers
▪️ Packed lunch - Some dogsbodies favourite part of the day - we supply lunch, we can't have our dogsbodies getting hungry!
▪️ Thermos
▪️ Entertainment of choice - books, music, sketchbook or nothing... Some dogsbodies just like to nap or lie and look at the sky.

Fancy volunteering for a day or a weekend? Accommodation and meals are provided. Email dogsbody@sardawales.org.uk

❤️"Hi, I'm a search and rescue dog.
I use my keenest sense of smell
To help locate missing humans
When some trouble had befell.

I can sniff skin cells on a softest breeze,
You humans would never sense they're there.
But I can tell with concentration,
For they'll linger in the air

They may be present in the plants around,
In rocky corners with some moss
And I'll have memorised these precious clues
From a loved one's piece of cloth.

Then I travel on so diligently,
For I have a most important task to do.
To find every missing human
And help bring them back to you".

Well done Martina and Ella 👍👍

Well done 👍

They are fantastic dogs 👏👏

This is great news and such a good result for locating the missing person which is why I love supporting everyone involved in Mountain Rescue. Well done search dog Ella and Martina Can I check was it Ella who found the missing person? Other social media outlets are saying it was DMWRT search dog Maggie and Fiona? Always good to give the handlers and dogs the kudos where deserved. 👏🏻

Great job! Well done
