A special breeding program helps the 341st Training Squadron at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, to provide the best of the best military working dogs to the Lackland Air Force Base.
Somewhere there is a place to put the text of the video. Maybe I had been doing it as a first comment by us on one of the sites, but it can go somewhere to make it more seo
Military Trainer: What we do here at the 341st training squadron at Lackland Air Force Base is we provide military working dogs for all four branches of service. What they do is keep our materiel and our personal safe around the world in places where there they're in harm’s way.

One of the ways we provide these dogs is we have an actual breeding program here for little guys like this.

What we do is raise them until an age of about six weeks and then they are temporarily adopted or we use the expression fostered.

One of the critical factors for us is that we cannot run this program without a good supply of volunteers from the community to help us

Citizen volunteer playing with puppy at home: We've been doing it for about four years now. This is our ninth puppy. It's extremely rewarding. Being able to raise these guys and for them to be able to go out and bring people home safe.

Military trainer wearing dog attack sleeve: We live in this crazy world with satellite and Internet and all this high technology. But the best way of keeping our personnel safe is still a dog like this, properly repaired, properly trained to do his job and keep soldiers and sailors and airmen and marines safe.
