Forced to stop their training because of Covid-10, the canine members of a search and rescue team came up with a fun way to keep everyone entertained during lockdown.

A group of bored dogs from the Lake District Mountain Rescue Search Dogs Association decided to take matters into their own paws and create a fun video to share on Facebook to make everyone smile.

The dogs were helped by photographer Rob Grange who also owns two Border Collie search dogs and is chairman of the Association.  

Emergency canine conference call

The fun video titled ‘Revolting Dogs’ shows an emergency video ‘dog and bone’ conference between the search dogs.

It starts with the lead dog asking if everyone is listening to which all the dogs reply that they are. Well, apart from a poor Labrador stuck in a cat flap. The lead dog explains that it’s been nearly three weeks since they stopped training – six months in dog years. He suggests that their humans may have just forgotten about them so the dogs need to organise their own training. 

The video shows how the clever canines devise a way to keep up their search training.
