    A leading dog-blogger offers a tour of military working dogs' extraordinary training, heroic accomplishments, and the lasting impacts they have on those who work with them. Maria Goodavage here tells heartwarming stories of modern soldier dogs and the amazing bonds that develop between them and their handlers. Beyond tales of training, operations, retirement, and adoption into the families of fallen soldiers, Goodavage talks to leading dog-cognition experts about why dogs like nothing more than to be on a mission with a handler they trust.

    Shea says: "Detailed and heart wrenching at times."

    Would you listen to Soldier Dogs again? Why?

    Yes I will. Very fascinating book with a lot to absorb.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gunny. He has a great compassion for the dogs and is so instrumental in preparing these handler/dog teams for war. The dogs are trained motivationally instead of with compulsion and he has proven that motivation is - by far - the best method to train these high drive working dogs.


    Which character – as performed by Nicole Vilencia – was your favorite?

    See above. Nicole Vilencia did a great job as the narrator.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    And Don't Call Them "Equipment"


    Any additional comments?

    This book also touched on "The Robbie Law" which allows for our canine heros that have saved countless American lives, to come home and be offered for adoption at the end of their careers and live out their lives with the dignity and love that they so deserve.
