Publisher's Summary

The Navy SEAL teams' elite K9 warriors do it all - from detecting explosives to eliminating the bad guys. These powerful dogs are also some of the smartest and most highly skilled working animals on the planet. Mike Ritland's job is to train them. This is the tale of how Ritland discovered his passion and grew up to train these elite dogs. After becoming a SEAL, he was on combat deployment in Iraq when he saw a military working dog in action, and he instantly knew he'd found his true calling. Ritland eventually started his own company to train and supply working and protection dogs for the U.S. government, the Department of Defense, and other clients. He also started the Warrior Dog Foundation to help retired Special Operations dogs live long and happy lives after their service.

    "Good listen"

    While the content isn't "exciting" it's very educational and well written. I never thought the training of an MWD would be so exhausting.

    "Heroic Dogs and Their Trainers"

    The story line was outstanding and the reader read the book in a superb manner. Kramer was easy to listen to and he did a great narration of the book.

    Enjoyed this performance. Brozej captures Mike Ritlands' storytelling in full unvarnished fashion. Narration's little dull.

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

    First of all my respects to the men & women who are serving or have served to proect our country. I purchased the book looking forward to getting some insight into how our Navy Seals make use of their dogs and how they go about training them. I really enjoyed the anecdotes that related the situations where the Navy Seals make use of their dogs and the description of the types of training they must have. Where I was left wanting more was on the specifics of the training. This was a fast read for me. Although I didn't like Michael Kramers monotone raspy voice and almost cocky sounding lack of inflections I was able to overcome it and focused on the story.


    What three words best describe Michael Kramer’s performance?

    raspy monotone voice
