Military Working Dogs

The history of military working dogs in the United States includes: dogs donated by citizens, sled dogs, strays picked up by soldiers overseas, and a formal training program at Lackland Air Force Base.

This research guide is a selective bibliography of resources on military working dogs.  It is intended to help researchers find relevant books, articles, military publications, Web sites, and other resources about military working dogs. It also contains references to bills and laws designed to provide for the retirement, medical care, and adoption of military working dogs once their service is complete.

This guide is dedicated to military working dogs and their handlers.
