These dogs are integrated into Special Operations at all levels of mission planning. They HALO parachute from high altitude, chase enemy squirters, and detect explosive booby traps, to name just a few tasks. If you want to learn about these amazing animals, the sacrifices they've made, and their effectiveness in combat, then read Trident K9 Warriors.” ―Brandon Webb, former Navy SEAL, New York Times bestselling author of The Red Circle, and editor in chief of SOFREP.com

Co-authored by Gary Brozek, “Trident K-9 Warriors” sheds light on the reclusive world of Seal Team dog handlers and the highly classified missions that they embark on to ensure freedom and prosperity from the evolving scourge of terrorism. With their sights set on the most cunning and ruthless enemies, K-9 operatives will jump, dive and fast-rope into the most dangerous places known to man. Deployed to detect hidden weapons caches, booby traps, and to apprehend insurgents, these K-9 warriors ensure an extra margin of safety to their brother’s-in-arms which guarantees success on the battlefield.
Mike Ritland does an outstanding job of conveying the rigors of Seal dog training and selection as well as incorporating some historic facts about military working dogs and how they evolved into the elite spec-ops warriors of today. Unlike most of the media hype surrounding special operations, Mike manages to tell a compelling story without divulging sensitive operational secrets that could jeopardize Seals and their K-9 teams out in the field.
