Deployed 380 ESFS Military Working Dogs develop, detect, deter, defend

A 380th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron military working dog team awaits the start of a detection training scenario at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia, Jan. 10, 2017. Military working dogs complete weekly training scenarios to maintain the standards needed to protect military installations. “There’s always that chance that the only thing between you and an explosive is your dog and 26 feet of leash,” Staff Sgt. Dakoda, 380th ESFS military working dog handler, said. “We rely on our dogs and have faith that they are going to do their job.” (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Tyler Woodward)
