Military Working Dogs are injured and killed in combat. They are no different that two legged service members. So handlers must train on K9 first aid. This is a great video that show some training that could someday save a dog’s life.

First aid training for military working dog handlers so they are prepared to care for their dog if they’re injured while on deployment. Soundbites include SSgt Travis Lausier – Veterinary Technician and SrA Kyle Rademacher – Military Working Dog Handler. Produced by Seaman Lisa Reese

I meant to post this last week with my Marines and their Black Labs Post.  I love this one!

Osi, a military working dog with the station Provost Marshal�s Office kennel, runs through water toward a mock aggressor aboard Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif., Feb. 22. After given the command to attack, dogs like Osi will do everything in their power to get to their target.

    I love these MWDs, most especially Honza Bear. How is Honza Bear and will he and his handler be in the states soon? I am so sorry but I forgot his handler’s name :-(
