The dogs are trained in bomb, drug and weapon detection, tracking the enemy and defending their unit. These dogs’ loyalty, bravery and high level of training make them extremely valuable to any unit that they are attached to.
There are approximately 2,500 dogs in active service today, with about 700 deployed overseas.
Joseph White, a retired military working dog trainer, originated the idea for this special day – March 13th – National K9 Veterans Day.
We salute and thank all of the K-9 military and service dogs!
