Military dog training is not just for soldiers!
Prepper Press is pleased to put another quality manual into print. We have now brought the U.S. Military’s guide to training military working dogs into an 8×10″ paperback. Now dog owners can read and reference what was previously an electronic document that was hard to use in the field. Many readers, myself included, would rather read a paperback book than read a computer screen. This book is for you.
Preppers, whether they are dog owners or not, know the value of having a K9 companion. If you are a dog owner, no matter the breed, this book can help you train your dog to be more loyal, smarter, and better-skilled at help you manage external risks that could threaten you and your family. Military dog training is unique, extensive, and well-researched.
