Formentera hosts training course for guides of search and rescue dogs

foto-grup-curs-cans1Formentera's civil protection office is hosting a course dedicated to the human guides of search and rescue dogs. With the help of five volunteer dogs, 11 individuals from Protecció Civil, Policia Local de Formentera, the firefighting brigade and the municipal animal pound are specialising in canine-assisted rescue.

Two professionals from Spain's canine rescue unit are on the island to give both theory-based and hands-on instruction. The training is designed to prepare participants to work with dogs to locate imperilled individuals as part of emergency search and rescue operations.

The €2,900 initiative is funded by the CiF president's office.
