FRAGMENTS | Dogs at War

The use of dogs as an auxiliary force for armies developed during World War II. At the outbreak of the war, the United States Army had not yet considered the possibility of using dogs, but the breeders and trainers of the dogs were the ones who pushed to recognize their ability to contribute to the war effort.

The US entry into the war led to a turning point in thinking about the ability of dogs to neutralize and locate dangers and training centers were established for this purpose.
