A Day in the Life of Avalanche Dogs

A dog may be the only living being that is absolutely thrilled to go to work every single day.  For the avalanche rescue dogs of Big Sky, Montana, life is pretty good on the mountain. Their days consists of riding snowmobiles, being trained on how to perform a rescue, hanging out with the handlers, and running down the slopes at the end of day. What dog wouldn’t love this job? It is truly amazing the things dogs can be trained to do. Take a look at this video to see a day in the life of an avalanche dog at Big Sky Resort.
