Most recently, the value of military dogs in war has become widely recognized (once again), due in part to the events of May 2011, when the media exploded with reports that a dog team had been assigned to the mission that took down Osama bin Laden.

In the early 20th century, Lt. Col. Edwin Hautenville Richardson was Britain's foremost authority on dog training. Not only would he prove to be an unabashed promoter of progressive attitudes toward dogs, but nearly 100 years later, Richardson's compassionate treatment of his dogs are the models for dog handling today.
