Overview

The Dogs of War: The Courage, Love, and Loyalty of Military Working Dogs by Lisa Rogak

Military working dogs gained widespread attention after Cairo participated in the SEAL Team 6 mission that led to Osama bin Laden's death. Before that, few civilians realized that dogs served in combat, let alone that they could parachute from thirty thousand feet up.

The Dogs of War reveals the amazing range of jobs that our four-legged soldiers now perform, examines the dogs' training and equipment, and sets the record straight on those rumors of titanium teeth. You'll find heartwarming stories of the deep bond that dogs and their handlers share with each other, and learn how soldiers and civilians can help the cause by fostering puppies or adopting retirees.

An incredible story of the largely unseen but vital role that dogs play in our armed forces, The Dogs of War is a must-read for animal lovers everywhere.

This was an enjoyable read. The explanations of every aspect of Military Working dogs was described in detail without bogging down. Lots of historical references and first hand descriptions of the relationship between handler and dog. I was surprised by a lot of the medical information. I've got a much greater appreciation and respect for the work these amazing animals perform.

The book is overly focused on the mystery of the military (SOCOM, Special Equipment, etc). It captures many dogs and their handlers. The author did travel about to get many different views about MWDs. The book got redundant and predicatable. All topics were covered but the depth was lacking. Topics included: History, training, breeding, testing, employment, retirement, Vet care, trama, diesese, PTSD, adoption, memorials, cemetaries, organizations, protective equipment, breeds, WWII national mobilization, envirenmental effects, unit canine mascots, feral dogs in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam.
