    Story
    (137)

    As a SEAL on combat deployment in Iraq, Mike Ritland saw a military working dog in action and instantly knew he found his true calling. While the SEAL teams had used dogs in the past, they never had dogs trained specifically by SEALs, for SEALs. To fill this void, Ritland started his own company after he retired, training and supplying dogs for the West Coast SEAL teams. He knew that less than 1% of all working dogs had what it takes to contribute to the success of our nation’s elite combat units. He searched the globe for animals who fit this specific profile.

    asa says: "A unique story written and read very well"
    "Spent too much time on fluff."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Probably not but it held my interest slightly enough to half way listen and finish. I was hesitate in reading this based on the few reviews. While it wasn't a terrible read, it certainly spent more time than it should on different parts of history that doesn't seem to add to the overall thesis of the book.
    .


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The war story's the author shared of different dogs and their handlers. The author does a good job in portraying the different personalities of the dogs.

    The author tends to repeat himself numerous times on several things. I can't count the times I heard him refer to the finding and then a paragraph down he says the same or similar sentence.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Like mentioned above, the author does a great job at describing the scene and "characters". This made all the recounts of scenes enjoyable to listen to.


    Do you think Trident K9 Warriors needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No but it could maybe use restructuring with some of the history fluff pulled out.


    Any additional comments?

    Again, this wasn't a bad read and the performance by Jeff was good. I probably wouldn't recommend it to a war buff or dog lover, unfortunately.
