Heartwarming Top 10's

Top 10 Army Dogs

Written by Chelsea Dogs

Dogs working in the army have a long history starting in ancient times. From ‘war dogs’ trained in combat to their use as scouts, sentries and trackers, their uses have been varied and some continue to exist in modern military usage.

Historical Uses:

  • Fighting
  • Logistics & communication
  • Mascots
  • Medical research
  • Detection & tracking
  • Scouts
  • Sentries

Modern Uses:

  • Law enforcement (police dogs)
  • Drug and explosives detection
  • Intimidation
  • Retirement
  • Military working dogs continue to serve as sentries, trackers, search and rescue, scouts, and mascots. Retired working dogs are often adopted as pets or therapy dogs.

To celebrate the incredible work that these dogs do, we’ve compiled our favourite top 10 pictures of soldiers and their dogs.
