Abstract:

This paper examines the current military working dogs MWD program, its historical roots, and the possibility for expansion of the program. Current service MWD programs will be discussed, as well as possible models for change. The primary focus is on the potential roles that MWDs may perform in helping the United States armed forces and those of our friends and allies engaged in LIC situationsenvironments. It must be also be kept in mind that as our service manpower end strengths decline, our military mission remains. This requires careful examination of all resources and combat multipliers available, to include MWDs.
