HM Coastguard are responsible for rope rescues along the entire UK coastline, which includes rescue of domestic animals who have fallen to prevent their owners getting into difficulty trying to self-rescue their pets.

A coastguard spokesperson said: “we urge all dog owners to keep their pets on a lead while walking near cliffs. If your pet gets into difficulty, do not attempt a rescue yourself. Call 999 and ask for Coastguard.
