Total German Shepherd:

Thanks you so much CPT Friar for sharing this wonderful information with us. I find it very interesting to see these wonderful MWD's (military war dogs) in action and to hear of the various kinds of jobs that they do.

I have a feeling a lot of people have no idea what all these dogs do and can do for us every day out in the field. Most people probably think bomb or explosives detection dogs, but they do a host of jobs - everything from sentry work, scouts, messengers and mine detectors to patrol dogs, and so much more!

Thanks so much for all that you do as well in training and working with these wonderful canine soldiers and for also protecting our country and citizens everyday. Your work and dedication are sincerely appreciated by us all.
