Episode 91: “Sergeant Rex; The Unbreakable Bond Between a Marine and His Military Working Dog” Author Mike Dowling

Ted and Eric sit down with Marine Handler Mike Dowling and talk about his unassuming start in K9 by training guide dogs for the blind as a child. After enlisting in the Marines and being assigned to a kennel pre 9/11 he talks about his introduction into the MWD Program. After 9/11 he and his dog Rex deploy to the Middle East and Mike tells the story of the first night he and Rex head out with a team and the events that would shape the rest of his time in the Middle East. He talks about the interaction with commanders and tells his first hand account how, in a single deployment, MPCs and MWDs became of the most utilized tools for military units and have been highly sought after ever since.
