For his weekly Military Dog Photo, Kevin Hanrahan introduces us to “The Puppy Program” run by the Department of Defense.

The program is located at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. From birth to eight weeks , the puppies are reared at the Military Working Dog Center in a state of the art whelping facility.

Trainers are looking for specific traits when breeding and selecting future working military dogs:

  • Solid temperament
  • working ability
  • medical soundness

This information and photos are from Kevin Hanrahan (solider writer: balancing the sword and the pen) and is being published with permission from Bernie at the Department of Defense Breeding Program.
