🚨Episode 107: Secret Service Officer Marshall Mirarchi

“The dog doesn’t know he’s protecting the President, he’s doing this because he’s protecting ME”

Retired Secret Service dog, DHS Award for Valor, USSS Award for Merit, AMC Top Dog Award, PDSA Order of Merit, K9 Hurricane needs no introduction! This episode, we had the honor of interviewing his handler of 4 years and USSS agent for over a decade: Marshall Mirarchi. Everyone knows the Secret Service is elite, and their K9 crew even more so – we cannot wait for our Listeners to take a peek behind the curtain with us 👀

Tune in to hear the process of becoming a Secret Service agent (and what baseball ⚾️ has to do with learning marksmanship 🔫), joining Special Ops – Emergency Response Team, to the K9 class, what it’s like on the job handling a dog of this caliber, and what K9 Hurricane has been up to in his retirement. 😎🐺

We cannot thank Marshall enough for joining us on this awesome episode! Go follow Marshall and his amazing non-profit organization at @K9Hurricane. If you can, please donate to help support their mission of providing subsidized veterinary care to retired law enforcement and military dogs at K9hurricanesheroes.org! Hurricane’s Heroes is a federally recognized non-profit organization with the goal of helping retired working dogs live long and healthy lives – and who wouldn’t want to support that?! 👊

Episode 104: Michele and Jenna of SciK9

This episode is a Two-for-One; the guys sit down with Michele and Jenna (both of the DOD). 💁‍♀️Jenna went through the MPC program years ago during her time with Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO), and has been involved with the DOD K9 programs for 15 years. Meanwhile, 🙋‍♀️Michele was realizing the disconnect between handlers and scientists, and went through handler school to gain some much needed understanding, respect, language, and perspective. Now, the pair work together 😎 to enhance Military Working Dog operations through dedicated research, development, testing, and evaluation. Take the time to listen to the guys and the gals discuss top secret stuff 🤫, the nerd herd 🤓, Tinder/PornHub 😳, a bomb dog named Usher 🐕‍🦺, and their work with Pat Noland (Tactical Directional Canine Systems) and Cindy Otto (UPENN Working Dog Center) on COVID-19 detection dogs 🦠. Yes, that’s a thing. Check it out!

HUGE thank you to Michele and Jenna for coming on Working Dog Radio!  Follow them at @SciK9.

Episode 103: Maria Goodavage

🚨Episode 103: Maria Goodavage🚨
Welcome to Working Dog Episode 103, the third episode of our 2020 Ladies of K9 series 😎. The guys sit down with former USA Today journalist, and published author, Maria Goodavage, to discuss a different angle to Working Dogs. Goodavage has published a handful of books, including “Soldier Dogs, the Untold Story of America’s Canine Heroes”, “Top Dog, the Story of Marine Hero Lucca”, “Secret Service Dogs, the Heroes Who Protect the President of the United States”, and most recently “Doctor Dogs, How Our Best Friends are Becoming Our Best Medicine”. She certainly has a unique view to the working dog industry, and a true respect for what these dogs are capable of, from harrowing tales of saving our military personnel’s lives 🇺🇸, to how keenly able their noses are at detecting hidden things, like cancer 🧬. This is one perspective you do not want to miss out on! (And after you listen to the episode 🎧, do yourself a favor and get your paws on a book of hers 📚 and another learn a thing or two!!)

HUGE thank you to Maria for coming on Working Dog Radio!  Follow her and show some support;  Soldier Dogs on Facebook. Pick up her books available on Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, Audiobook and anywhere you order books.
