Welcome to Aiyla Says...
What is Aiyla Says...?
The Aiyla Says aim is to educate the community about the dangers of water and how to stay safe near water.
Who is Aiyla...?
Aiyla is a Newfoundland dog who was Scotland’s first operational water assistance dog. Until recently she was a member of a search and rescue team but the time has come for her to move onto new ventures.
The organisation has a display team of four Newfoundlands, Aiyla, Caesar, Finn and Maisey. The Newfoundland water display team assists us to raise funds for training and also educational resources for the nursery and school visits that we will be attending.
The Newfoundland dogs train in the water every week to ensure they are proficient in recovering:
• a single casualty
• multiple casualties
• unconscious casualty, including turning casualty in water
so they are facing upwards and not down in the water
• casualty & kayak
• inflatable boat with multiple passengers
