It’s hard to put into words exactly how important teamwork is, so we found a video to help emphasize our point.
This clip shows a little training session with a Belgian Malinois, the breed commonly used in law enforcement and the military, going over some basic tactical commands. These are extremely smart dogs, as well as agile, muscular and always alert, as you’ll see in a second when you watch the video below.
Former Navy SEAL Mike Ritland knows a thing or two about training dogs for the military. Mens Journal reports Ritland gets paid up to $100,000 per animal to train dogs for combat in the military and homeowners at his Trikos school in Dallas, Texas, and he says, “It’s all about how you carry yourself.”
“Training dogs for the military is no different than training your dog to not bark – They always respond to non-verbal communication, reinforcement and psychology,” Ritland states.
In his new book How to Train Your Dog – The Navy SEAL Way, Mike explains how to channel the SEAL mindset to transform your dog into an elite pet. For a quick preview of what that would look like and what these dogs are capable of, watch the video below:
