Dog handlers in the Army are responsible for caring for their K-9 companions, training them to perform specific duties, and participating in missions. This career is a great choice for those who love working with animals and want to help support military missions.

To become a military working dog handler, you must complete basic training and pass a physical fitness test. You will also need to score at least 91 percent on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test.

After you complete your military training, you will then receive a certificate that shows that you are certified to work with dogs in the U.S. You can then apply to a specialized branch within the Army and begin your career.

During your career, you will perform specialized duties in law enforcement, physical security, anti-terrorism operations, explosive detection, and/or illicit drug interdiction, utilizing an assigned military working dog. Some of the most common types of duties are patrol, bomb detection, and search and rescue.

In addition to basic training, a military working dog handler must undergo a variety of other training classes and certifications.
