Navy SEAL Dogs promises to teach your children all about how the navy trains these specialist dogs for combat, the breed used and ...expectations of these dog soldiers. They will understand the background of the navy SEAL dogs, the agility of the breed and their ability to locate people, explosives and weapons with their senses of smell and hearing. This educational publication opens up a world of action adventure for kids. The ebook explains everything about helping soldiers on their missions with vivid illustrations and captivating photographs. Read it in black and white or absorbing full color on your kindle. This is a perfect ebook for kids to explore and discover the history of war dogs and the link between Belgian Malinois, working dogs and SEAL dogs. It includes explanations of: what the military has used dogs for in warfare stretching as far back as 600 BC, saving over 10,000 lives in warzones and frontlines worldwide; the close bond between these dogs and their handlers and ?Cairo? the SEAL dog who was part of the team that helped capture the terrorist Osama bin Laden. For instance did you know that there are over 2,500 war dogs in service today with about 700 deployed and serving overseas or that a daring navy seal skydiver and his dog hold the record for the highest man-dog parachute jump at an altitude of 30,100 feet? The facts, pictures and explanations in the publication will keep your child fascinated and entertained, giving fun and enjoyment whilst improving understanding and knowledge. You will understand why most of the western world?s military and law enforcement sectors choose the Malinois, whether it be for sport work, search and rescue, personal protection, detection, police or army work and how SEAL dogs are capable of working in military missions at sea, in the air and on land. You will see why these dogs are trained to detect and engage in ways that soldiers can?t such as explosive detection, reconnaissance, tracking, guarding, engaging the enemy, etc. You will discover what it is like for a soldier to take on, handle and train what will become a best friend. You will also get an understanding of some of the incredible equipment which has been developed to help these dogs perform their work; for instance, I was amazed that special dog goggles have been developed to help dogs recognize that there are people on the other side of a wall. Combat canines are elite warriors, trained fearlessly to venture into our skies by parachute jumping or rappelling down enemy structures. Imagine your heart pounding in your chest while peering out over the edge of a plane 13,000 feet above ground with your best friend harnessed to you. This book will make you understand the close bond which develops between the trainer and dogs and how both are totally reliant on each other for survival. Loss of either party has a tremendous impact on the one remaining and stories of loyalty will bring tears to your eye If you are a little bit like me, your child will be enthralled by the facts, photographs and information contained in the book. They will look at these remarkable dogs in a different light and will want to learn more about them. "We want to be in a situation under maximum pressure, maximum intensity, and maximum danger. When it's shared with others, it provides a bond which is stronger than any tie that can exist." - SEAL Team Six Officer "Anyone can just go in there and kill someone, but you can't get information from a corpse." - SEAL Motto Go ahead and get this Kindle edition by Lionel Paxton. You need download it only once and read it anytime or anywhere on your Kindle device, phones, tablets or PC. Delve into astonishing ebook features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading all about these amazing adventures of working dogs that love to work and enjoy learning and keeping busy!
