This is me aged seven months old at Edale Moor Triangulation Pillar on Kinder Scout. It’s known as the Scout Trig as it carries a memorial plaque to the Venture Scout unit from the area.

I was named after Kinder Scout, the highest point in the Peak District. This was my first visit there and I loved it. My bones are still not totally set yet so I still have to take it steady and not do too much walking. I loved been on the moors and jumping down into the Groughs.

My training is progressing well. I can now walk to heel, recall back to my handler, sit and lay down. I am working on my down stay out of sight and once that is done then I am ready for registration so that I can start my formal training in search and rescue.

I have done two stock tests which I passed, ignoring sheep whilst close to them

On Kinder Scout I saw my first Mountain Hare. It suddenly popped up from nowhere and ran off at lightning speed.

I’m really loving my training and want to be out on the hills as much as possible.
