Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

“Whether you’re a canine or a human, if you’ve been a SEAL team member, that means you’re a brother.” Ritland repeatedly visits this sentiment in this moving nonfiction journey that explores the unconditional bond between MWD (military working dog) and handler, and how his love for dogs from an early age through his deployment as an elite SEAL leads him to training these four-legged heroes. Perhaps most moving is how this level of trust plays a vital role in the inspiring and hair-raising stories that he shares about different SEAL handler-and-dog teams during deadly missions. Ritland exemplifies in each scenario that MWDs are as dedicated and valuable as “the men they serve alongside—ready for anything, anywhere, anytime.” An appendix, with a glossary and a “brief history of canines in combat,” closes this high-interest offering. Grades 8-11. --Annie Miller

Review

“Special force SEALs are elite enough, but SEAL dogs are a breed apart. Fascinating . . . About time these heroes got the attention they deserved for a young audience.” ―Kirkus

Navy SEAL Dogs gives a unique insider account of the training and deployment of these special animals and their handlers. Ritland does a superb job of detailing these dogs in combat, as well as the bond between operator and K-9. Readers are sure to be surprised by the different levels of service and skill that go into making an elite team of two legged and four legged SEALs.” ―Howard Wasdin, former Navy SEAL and New York Times bestselling author of I Am A SEAL Team Six Warrior

“After a stellar career in the Teams, Mike Ritland has gone on to train working K9's for some of the most elite units in the U.S. Special Operations community. These dogs are integrated into Special Operations at all levels of mission planning. They HALO parachute from high altitude, chase enemy squirters, and detect explosive booby traps, to name just a few tasks. If you want to learn about these amazing animals, the sacrifices they've made, and their effectiveness in combat, then read Navy SEAL Dogs.” ―Brandon Webb, former Navy SEAL, New York Times bestselling author of The Red Circle, and Editor-in-Chief SOFREP.com
