But it's not often they have to save dogs stuck up trees.

That's exactly what happened when ten month old Bentley walked up the steps of a treehouse in Tingley.

The adventurous pup clearly couldn't help wanting to see what was up the steps on Wednesday (17) morning - but walking back down them looked less than appealing, as pictures shared by West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service (WYFRS) show.

WYFRS posted to on social media: "You've probably heard about cats getting stuck up trees, but what about a dog stuck up a tree!?

"Morley Blue watch helped rescue 10 month old Bentley down from a tree house after he'd climbed to the top on his own!

"We're not sure he'll be going back up there any time soon!"
