0:00:130:00:15

We've only got five minutes, so get ready for your Blue Peter adventure.

0:00:150:00:19

-We've met some amazing people on Blue Peter.

-Absolutely.

0:00:190:00:22

Actor Hugh Jackman,

0:00:220:00:24

Jess Glynne,

0:00:240:00:25

even astronaut Tim Peake.

0:00:250:00:27

But, today we're here to meet a very special four-legged star

0:00:280:00:32

and she lives right here in the Peak District.

0:00:320:00:34

-I can hear her barking.

-Here she comes.

0:00:370:00:39

-Hi!

-Hey! How are you?

-Hi!

0:00:410:00:43

Here she is. Hello, Dolly!

0:00:430:00:45

-The superstar, Dolly!

-She's off.

-She's off.

0:00:450:00:47

-Come on, Dolly, in you go.

-Back inside.

0:00:470:00:49

'Meet Dolly, the German Shepherd,

0:00:550:00:57

'and her owner, Ben.'

0:00:570:00:59

'She may look like a normal pet but,

0:01:010:01:03

'when she's not relaxing at home, she has a very important job to do.'

0:01:030:01:07

And that's because Dolly is a search-and-rescue dog.

0:01:070:01:11

'Only 27 dogs in the entire country do the job

0:01:110:01:14

'and it's really important.'

0:01:140:01:16

'When Dolly's working, she helps track down people

0:01:160:01:19

'who have got stranded and need help.'

0:01:190:01:21

'She's so good, she can do the same job

0:01:210:01:23

'as up to 20 people in a rescue.'

0:01:230:01:26

But it's not just Dolly who helps, because Ben's dad, Nick,

0:01:300:01:33

also works for Mountain Rescue.

0:01:330:01:35

Are you coming for a walk, Lindsey?

0:01:350:01:37

Yeah, go on, then.

0:01:370:01:38

I'm not quite sure where Radzi's gone. Hmm.

0:01:380:01:40

I'm sneaking out of Ben's house

0:01:430:01:45

because I want to find out just how good Dolly really is.

0:01:450:01:48

'Dolly's been a qualified rescue dog for three years,

0:01:510:01:54

'and she loves being outdoors.'

0:01:540:01:55

Do you know what? He's probably gone to get food. He is always thinking about his stomach.

0:01:570:02:01

-PHONE BUZZES

-Oh, hang on.

0:02:010:02:02

Hello?

0:02:040:02:05

Hey, Linds! Did you miss me?

0:02:050:02:07

Always, Radzi. Where are you?

0:02:070:02:08

That's for Dolly to find out.

0:02:080:02:10

So, I'm going to hide and see if she can track me down.

0:02:100:02:13

Good luck - you're going to need it.

0:02:130:02:15

Do you know what? That sounds like a challenge to me.

0:02:160:02:20

'But, before the searching begins, Dolly needs to transform into...

0:02:200:02:24

'Super Search-And-Rescue Dog!'

0:02:250:02:28

'Dolly is one of nine dogs that work in the Peak District National Park,

0:02:300:02:34

'an area made up of 542 square miles,

0:02:340:02:39

'giving me plenty of places to hide.'

0:02:390:02:41

'And, despite the terrible weather,

0:02:420:02:44

'I've managed to get about a mile away from Ben and Dolly's house already.'

0:02:440:02:48

I'm going to go off-road now.

0:02:490:02:51

They're never going to find me.

0:02:510:02:53

'In a real situation, the Mountain Rescue team would be told roughly

0:02:530:02:57

'where a missing person is,

0:02:570:02:58

'but they rely on the dogs to help pinpoint them.'

0:02:580:03:01

'We know within one square mile where Radzi is,

0:03:010:03:04

'but it's down to Dolly to actually find him

0:03:040:03:07

'using her nose.'

0:03:070:03:08

I have just spotted the perfect hiding place.

0:03:090:03:12

She's never going to get me there.

0:03:120:03:14

How does Dolly know

0:03:140:03:17

what Radzi's smell is?

0:03:170:03:18

Why doesn't she just smell us and not run away?

0:03:180:03:21

She can smell us, obviously,

0:03:210:03:22

but she's been trained to find other people that aren't with me.

0:03:220:03:25

She gets me to the person, she gets a reward.

0:03:250:03:28

I'm going to throw a spanner in the works.

0:03:290:03:31

I'm going to spread my scent all around us,

0:03:310:03:34

and see if she can still find me.

0:03:340:03:36

Ha-ha-ha, she's got no chance!

0:03:360:03:39

We'll see about that.

0:03:390:03:40

Let's not forget, Dolly is trained to sniff out

0:03:400:03:42

anyone other than her handler.

0:03:420:03:44

There is no way Dolly is going to find me.

0:03:440:03:46

Here we go.

0:03:480:03:49

I think that's her.

0:03:510:03:53

So, what's going to happen now?

0:03:530:03:54

I'm going to let Dolly off the lead, I'm going to give her the command to go and search,

0:03:540:03:58

and hopefully, Dolly will pick Radzi up really quickly on the wind.

0:03:580:04:00

OK, let's find Radzi.

0:04:000:04:02

-Come on, Dolly!

-Go for it, Dolly!

0:04:020:04:04

Find your toy! Where's your toy? Away, find!

0:04:040:04:07

Off she goes.

0:04:070:04:08

'Dolly will search the area

0:04:080:04:10

'and if she thinks she's found Radzi,

0:04:100:04:12

'she'll come back and let us know'

0:04:120:04:13

Ben, what is it like to have a super-pet? Is it super cool?

0:04:130:04:16

Yeah, it's absolutely amazing.

0:04:160:04:18

And how she's just a normal dog at home, and that's how we know her,

0:04:180:04:21

I honestly can't believe how she finds all these people

0:04:210:04:24

and saves people's lives.

0:04:240:04:25

I think it's amazing and I'm dead proud of her.

0:04:250:04:28

Oh, she's coming back. I can see Dolly. Here we go.

0:04:280:04:30

Good girl! Find it out! Get up!

0:04:300:04:32

This is so exciting, Ben.

0:04:320:04:34

I think that's her. Hide, hide!

0:04:340:04:36

'Despite my best efforts to confuse Dolly by spreading my scent,

0:04:360:04:40

'she's already locked on to me.

0:04:400:04:42

-She's found him.

-Do you think he's over there?

-She's found him.

0:04:420:04:44

She's straight on it. No messing about.

0:04:440:04:46

-Woohoo, show me.

-Yeah, she's done it, she's done it.

0:04:460:04:50

What Dolly is going to do now she's found Radzi,

0:04:500:04:52

she'll come back up to me,

0:04:520:04:53

she'll jump on my chest - yay, good girl! -

0:04:530:04:55

and she'll run back to Radzi and she'll keep doing that

0:04:550:04:58

until I get there.

0:04:580:04:59

Good girl.

0:04:590:05:01

How good is that?

0:05:030:05:04

'In a real search-and-rescue situation,

0:05:050:05:07

'Dolly and Nick would make sure that the person being rescued is OK

0:05:070:05:11

'before taking them to hospital or contacting an air ambulance for assistance.'

0:05:110:05:15

Imagine if that was a real-life situation. You'd feel so much safer

0:05:160:05:19

knowing there's a dog like Dolly out there, wouldn't you?

0:05:190:05:22

-Linds, can I just say...

-Yeah.

0:05:220:05:23

-I'm a bit cold...

-Yeah.

0:05:230:05:24

-I'm a bit wet...

-Very.

0:05:240:05:26

-Hot choc?

-Absolutely.

-Come on.
