The US Military has utilized trained working dogs since WWI. These dogs are trained to work as scouts, trackers, sentries, mine/tunnel detectors, as well as for bomb and drug detection. Today, all branches of our Armed Forces employ K-9 services, with over 3,000 K-9s and their handlers stationed worldwide.
