Whilst we know that our four-legged-friends are a huge asset to the emergency services, did you know that they can also be life savers too?

In the video (below) the service dog runs up to the ‘casualty’ (his handler), with his blue light flashing, and immediately starts to try and give ‘chest compressions’.

And so the cycle continues until the handler jumps up to a rapturous applause from the crowd.
Could the next display involve a defibrillator? Watch this space…
