To date, the Army hasn’t found any piece of technology as effective at discovering explosives, IED components or IED builders, than the noses of military working dogs. The dogs help find militants that build, place and detonate IEDs. They are very quick and efficient when performing their duties, which includes searching houses. Having a dog go in a house is a lot safer than sending in soldiers, because the dogs don’t stumble onto anything. If they smell something, they will sit and the demolitions experts can come check it out. They move quickly; he dogs are able to search an area more thoroughly with much more speed and safety than humans. To them, finding bombs is fun. It’s like hide and seek. Dogs save lives. Sometimes the old ways are the best ways.
