Genre: Non-Fiction Memoir

Book Summary:Navy Seal Dogs is a memoir of Mike Ritland's personal experince of traing Mwds( Military working Dogs). In the book he will tell you how he trains the dogs, experiences from the battlefield, and what lead him to find his true calling.

Date Published:October 29, 2103

My favorite part of the story was when the author explained how he trains the dogs. He said "I will play a gunshot CD when pups are a few weeks old so they can get used to the sound". I thought that was interesting because I didn't know that they started training so early.

The character I could connect most to, was the author because of the love he has for dogs.

What I liked about the book was the detail the author put into explaining how he trains the dogs.He explains " I put the TNT into a box with rags and put it into a tube for 2 months, then I will go out to a baseball field and hide the rags usually at the farthest edge of the fence so the dogs had to use their nose to find the explosive material." I liked how he put all of the steps he had made to help with the dogs.

What I didn't like about the book was that he repeated himself a lot when explaining the training tactics. He would explain one thing then tell you the same thing but in different words.

About the AuthorHis love for dogs started when he was in 6th grade when he finally got his first dog Bud, a Labrador Retriever. His family was always in the military, so he joined the navy seals. When he was on a operation, a MWD had found a bomb big enough to blow up the whole village they were in. He was amazed by the dogs. With the love of dogs and the love to serve his country, he knew that traing K9s for the military was his true calling.

I could connect to the book because when I am older I want to be a veterinarian for Military Working Dogs.
