Who Are We?

We are a specialist team dedicated to the training, developing and deploying of Search Dogs within the Lake District Mountains and Fells to search for missing people.

All Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dog Handlers are all operational members of Mountain Rescue Teams within the Lake District – all must already be competent in first aid and survival in a mountainous environment.

Handlers choose to train a searchdog to assist their own Mountain Rescue teams and other teams within the Lake District Region, and further afield in adjoining areas.

We are an entirely voluntary organisation and rely solely on the generosity of public donations.
