We celebrate National K-9 Veterans Day with a conversation with former and present military dog handlers from all branches of service. If you were a dog handler in the military, please joins us to share your story and educate us about your service.
Dog handlers receive intensive training to work with expert dogs which assist with all sorts of security-oriented operations, from intelligence to bomb detection. “As a Military Working Dog Handler,” reads an Army recruiting website, “you’ll work with K-9 units and be responsible for training and caring for dogs, both at home and abroad, supporting missions and daily law enforcement. Military Working Dogs search for narcotic drugs or explosives and work with their human counterparts to neutralize threats in law enforcement operations.”
