Trident CoverTrident K9 Warriors is the tale of how K9s came to be used by US Navy Seals in some of the most demanding environments on earth.

The book is well written with an interesting mix of entertaining war stories and educational information about K9s. Interesting that a lot of what warrior K9s do translates to the civilian search and rescue world. Scent theory is scent theory, I guess.

There’s also good information on “operant conditioning,” which is a fancy phrase for “praise your dog for doing the right thing, instead of punishing it for the wrong thing.” Actually, dogs and people would benefit from a little more of that.

Thanks to the author for his service to our country and for a really nice book.
