Hervé Rey and Elbo

Hervé and Elbo are inseparable and complementary. Their complicity is beautiful to see and is essential to save lives.

At the foot of the slopes

Come and meet Hervé, a dog master, for a unique experience with Elbo, his German shepherd.
Take part in the training, where Elbo has to find avalanche victims.

What an impressive job! Real team work between Hervé and Elbo.

   The Search in the Snow

Hidden under a pile of snow, Elbo must quickly find the little girl, as quickly as possible! Aided by his dog, Hervé is ready to shovel the snow at the first sign. Fortunately Elbo is well trained and finds the little girl safe and sound in a very short time…
