K9s we rehabilitate and rehome
Mike Ritland describes our K9s as “not your typical house pets” in his book, Trident K9 Warriors and Navy SEAL Dogs.
A working dog in a combat environment, especially with our Special Operations Forces, must have a rare blend of physical traits and a certain temperament. These K9s have been specially selected from specific breeds depending on the role they will perform. As puppies, they are observed and trained (worked) by the military or law enforcement, and as they mature, the handler will understand more about its abilities and characteristics and be able to decide if they are suited for the job. These K9s, if they do enter service, undergo rigorous workouts, have special diets, and require a bond of mutual respect with their handler. The relationship with a handler is special and devoted.
