Book Description

1 Feb 2014
As a Navy SEAL on combat deployment in Iraq, Mike Ritland saw a military working dog in action and instantly knew he'd found his true calling. Ritland started his own company, training and supplying dogs for the SEAL teams, US Government, and Department of Defence. He knew that fewer than 1 per cent of all working dogs had what it takes to contribute to the success of our nation's elite combat units, and began searching the globe for animals who fit this specific profile. The results were a revelation: highly trained working dogs capable of handling both detection and apprehension work in the most extreme environments and the tensest of battlefield conditions. Though fiercely aggressive and athletic, these dogs develop a close bond with their handlers and other team members. Truly integrating themselves into their units, these K9 warriors are much like their human counterparts-unwavering in their devotion to duty, strong enough and tough enough to take it to the enemy through pain, injury, or fear.

I enjoyed this book, it was full of insight, on how the training from day one, as puppies was geared towards their days hunting terrorists and keeping the guys safe.

Alook into Dogs trained to detect and track. Ive been around dogs all my life and work dogs and i found this book informative and a great read. Thoroughly loved it and if you love dogs youll find a book that shows the bond and trust between Dogs and their handlers and the soldiers that trust so much in these dogs. Excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Read 17 April 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is an easy, enjoyable read. I've read several books about Navy Seals and several more on the topic of Military Working Dogs. This book is definitely a favorite as it merges the two. The book details the highly refined process of developing some of the best trained dogs in the world for dangerous, life-threatening missions. While it does focus more on the training and development of the Military Working Dogs than it does the training and development of Navy Seals, Mike Ritland goes into great detail discussing the relationship that these dogs and their handlers develop, while providing interesting, real-world stories along the way. I'd recommend this book to anyone interested in Seals or MWDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read 19 April 2013
By flhtse05 - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Being a Viet Nam Dog Handler I was very interested in Mike's book of todays war dogs. Mike does a great job of explaining the bond between the handler and the dog. We were not allowed to bring our dogs home when we left Nam and I spent the last two days in country in my dog's (BRUNO) kennel. That was 40 years ago and I still think of Bruno. Thank you Mike for sharing, thank you for your service active and now supplying dogs to the military. The lives saved by these brave warriors is countless. The men who have served with them know what they mean to the "Team".

I've known Mike since we graduated BUD/S Class 215 together. He's an incredible individual with a passion for training these amazing animals.

I give most my teammates, but not all, honest reviews on their books. This one is no exception, and I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in what goes into training these incredible four-legged teammates.

Great work Mike.

This book is a must buy! It accurately depicts life as a military working dog, and as a handler. I highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the military, or is just curious about life as a MWD handler

By Elizabeth Chandler - Published on

Easy to read. Very informative on positive reinforcement training . Doesn't sugar coat what these dogs are bred and used for. But also shows how they can be integrated into families and other professions. I respect and admire his dedication to making sure the dogs are well placed throughout their entire lives.
