Your Working Dog Radio hosts sit down with second time guest, Benito Olson. (Olson previously joined us for Episode 11- Master at Arms Benito Olson, and gave us an inside look at the event that should have killed him, so be sure to give that a re-listen!). In this episode, the gents chat about Olson’s upbringing, a divided home, a father in prison, and being an “underdog”. They delve into his military history, Operation Iraqi Freedom, the detonation that critically wounded him, while burying him, his teammates, and his dog. They also discussed overcoming the odds, recovering from his injuries, joining a Joint Task Force to support Operation Enduring Freedom, and his multiple deployments to Afghanistan. ⁣

His military career gave him the opportunity to work with some of the country’s finest trainers after being recruited to train dogs for Navy SEAL teams. After being Medically Retired from the Navy (and heavily decorated for his service), Olson started his own dog training business, Patriot Dog Training. ⁣

Most recently, Olson published a new book titled “The Underdogs: Conquering Life with Man’s Best Friend and SEAL Team”. A book synopsis states “Olson’s story promises a raw insight into the human spirit and a roadmap for how perseverance and brotherhood can help you climb the most insurmountable mountain.” So after you’ve finished this episode, get your paws on a copy of his book, you won’t be disappointed. ⁣
