Definitely a vital role to teach the dogs how to find casualties.
 
The Wainwright Society donated its annual fundraising to SARDA a couple of years back, and before the cheque presentation we had a joint walk with MRT team members, SARDA dogs and Dogsbodies. It was a great opportunity to talk to the guys at the sharp end and learn a lot more about the dogs and the training process
