Emergency services were scrambled after a man and his two dogs became stuck on the cliffs at Whitburn.
The alarm was raised at 11am today after the man and his pets became stranded on the cliffs just along from Souter, off Coast Road.
However, by the time the fire brigade arrived he had managed to climb back to the top with one of his dogs.
The Humber Coastguard then helped secure the missing pet.
All three are understood to be fine.
