Italian lifeguards use dogs for water rescue missions

Italy is the first country to recognize these certified dogs as actual lifeguards

Dogs make ideal lifeguard partners as they remain calm under pressure and instinctively choose the safest path through the water currents back to shore.

They can even stay afloat while paddling multiple swimmers to safety.

Through his Italian School for Lifeguard Dogs, Ferruccio Pilenga has trained more than 350 volunteer pups to execute water rescues.
