Safety warning over dog rescues

Dog owners on the Isle of Man are being urged to take care when exercising pets near cliffs and coastal areas after two animals were rescued.

Peel Coastguard was called out to rescue a dog from the sandy cliffs at Glen Wyllin on Saturday afternoon.

In the second incident, on Monday morning, Douglas Coastguard retrieved a dog from the foot of the cliffs on Marine Drive.

Both dogs were returned to their owners safe and well.

Manx Coastguard is urging anyone whose dog requires rescuing to call them out rather than attempt a rescue themselves.
