Ritland does a superb job of detailing these dogs in combat, as well as the bond between operator and K-9. Readers are sure to be surprised by the different levels of service and skill that go into making an elite team of two legged and four legged SEALs."-- "Howard Wasdin, former Navy SEAL and New York Times bestselling author of I Am A SEAL Team Six Warrior"

I just obtained my 1st Belgian Malinois "Axe" (named in honor of Matthew Axelson- SEAL in Operation Red Wings). I am seeking the mindset and knowledge needed to properly train him for Search and Rescue for Campbellsville, KY Fire Dept Special Operations Division. Axe will be with me on high angle rappelling/rescue, swift water rescue, River Boats, SCUBA, land search, etc...
Without access to this elite training, I am seeking out information to train myself and Axe in the SEAL mentality and as close to the physical training as possible so no victim suffers due to a lack of training. This book has started me off on the right foot that we needed as we build our team with his brother "Murph" (named in honor of Mike Murphy SEAL-Operation Red Wings).
Thanks again for this book and for your service! "1st in.. Last out"- Campbellsville Fire Dept Special Operations Division and US Civil Corps, LLC.
But it's only ok. Doesn't really get into the "meat" of the dinner. I was expecting more details on how he trains, and what these dogs go through in training and 100 pages of that. Or, with the stories of other handlers, was expecting more than a chapter.
3 stars due to book just being too short and not delving into the training deep enough.
These are exceptional dogs trained by exceptional people to do exceptional things. The stories are great but what I liked better were reading about training methods used and how intensely bonded the dogs and handlers become.
If you love dogs and are interested in K-9 type work, this is a great book.
