Military Working Dogs: When Given the Command to Attack

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. Photo courtesy of Kevin Hanrahan’s website.

“After given the command to attack,” Kevin Hanrahan writes, “Dogs like Osi (in the photo) will do everything in their power to get to their target.”

Kevin picked the photo of Osi charging through water on a training ground as his Military Dog Picture of the Week.

The posting also includes a video that shows military working dog handlers learning first aid to care for their dog if injured during deployment.

Military working dogs – just like troops – are injured and killed in combat. They are no different.  So handlers must train on K9 first aid that could save the life of their dogs.
