Brave Dogs Train to Rescue People From Avalanches

An avalanche of snow can be incredibly dangerous, and in the French Alps dogs are training to rescue people who may be trapped. While a normal pet may dig for a bone or a toy, in snowy conditions, Stash, a flat coat retriever, could be following the scent of a person in need. Training is a year-round endeavor for the ski patrol unit and its K9 rescuers. Because of the potential danger, this strenuous job only lasts a few years for the dogs.
