The Air Force Desert Defender Readiness Training Center on Fort Bliss, Texas, trains Security Forces Airmen from bases across the country before deployment. Military working dog handlers spend 15 days of the 28-day course learning how to work with their dogs in combat situations. Students completed day 8 Nov. 10, 2016. Students cleared an urban village, looking for simulated explosives and learning to respond to their dog’s change of behavior. All of these Airmen will soon deploy to various locations, often attached to Marine or Army units. A team of 10 Airmen lead the Military Working Dog program of the school. This cycle had 28 dog teams, the most the school has trained at once. The course continues tomorrow and through the weekend.
