Team Members have been ‘out and about’ over the past few weeks doing talks and presentations to various schools, volunteer groups and other organisations.
First up is PSYV Arbroath:
Our training session on the night was a bit of a treat for all the hard work put in over the past few weeks. PC Morgan’s mountain rescue colleague Calum Black from SARDA Southern (Search and Rescue Dog Association)/Tayside Mountain Rescue came and spoke to the group about the voluntary work he carries out with his dog, on behalf of Police, to help find people lost in the mountains as well as other rural and urban areas of Scotland.
We found out about how his dog ‘Dochas’ uses air scent to find people, how the dogs are trained and what happens when there is a call-out.
We also got to meet Calum’s new dog ‘Gorm’ – I think he has a few new fans!!
