Pooches in Leicestershire are being trained to sniff out people trapped in collapsed buildings. Around £500,000 is being spent on the UK's new canine "urban rescue" squad.
Gemma the collie is part of the team. If there is a disaster and people are stuck, Gemma and her team will be able to alert rescuers to where they are trapped.
Dogs from the UK have been used for search and rescue missions abroad before, but the government thinks it's a good idea to train an official sniffer dog squad.
It will take between two and three years for the 20 dogs in the team to be fully trained.
It's not all hard work. After a long day's training, there's always time for some fun. Fetch!
