WATCH: Day In The Life Of An Avalanche Rescue Dog


Any of you that have been reading my blogs over the last few years know that I’m an absolute sucker for avalanche rescue dogs. I just can’t help myself but to post about it whenever I see a ski resort brings on a new puppy.

Same thing goes for any media created about avalanche rescue dogs on the job. I can’t get enough of it.

One of our loyal readers made me aware of the video from Impact Dog Crates (embedded below) and I’m extremely grateful! It’s a fantastic short film about the hard-working dogs of Schweitzer, ID.

Abbey, Annie, and Murphy look like the goodest girls and I hope to make it up to Schweitzer to meet them someday!

Enjoy the film and make sure to crank up the volume (the sound is a little bit low).

Impact Dog Crates: We spent a day with Schweitzer Mountain’s talented Avalanche Search and Rescue Dogs and their incredible handlers to learn more about how these teams train for avalanche rescue scenarios. The SAR dogs: Abbey, Annie, and Murphy, practice live burials, ride chairlifts, and rip around the mountain on their handlers’ shoulders. It’s clear that these dogs love their jobs and now we can see why. _ Special thanks to: Schweitzer Mountain in Sandpoint, Idaho Idaho Panhandle Avalanche Center (IPAC) Schweitzer Ski Patrol Team and Abbey, Murphy, Annie, Steve, Leigh and Jeff! We appreciate you taking the time to show us a day in the life at the mountain and letting us fulfill our dream to be buried in a dog hole. Filmed by: Peyton Peltier _ Presented by Impact Dog Crates.
