U.S. Air Force 355th Security Forces Squadron Military Working Dog handlers are responsible for caring and training all assigned MWDs to protect and defend military installations by detecting potential explosive ordinances and illegal substances. MWDs are also trained to respond upon command to guard and attack any personnel who pose a threat to the U.S. Air Force and it’s Airmen. The 355th SFS hosts several demonstration events every year to involve the local community as well as joint training with local law enforcement working dogs to enhance MWDs’ experience and environment exposure.
