KUNSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- Military Working Dogs train on several important facets of protecting U.S. Air Force assets and personnel The training includes substance detection, which teaches MWDs to seek out and detect explosives, narcotics and other various substances. Additionally, MWDs are highly trained on phases of controlled aggression, which consist of field interviews, pursuit and attacks, search and escorts, search and re-attacks, and stand-offs. Obedience training helps MWDs familiarize with commands from their handlers, as well as teach discipline and attention in preparation for operational obstacles.
