ABOUT THE FIRST EDITION
"...the techniques and the case studies here are so interesting that a read will prove rewarding to ordinary trainers and fanciers alike." --Publisher s Weekly

Featuring over 100 new pages, including 150 new color photographs, this expanded and revised edition presents brand-new chapters on military working dogs in Iraq and Afghanistan, the therapy dogs who worked at Ground Zero, the SDF's new National Training Center and post-9/11 rescue missions at home and abroad. A special section, written by 9/11 SAR handlers in honor of their canine partners, reinforces what the Book-of-the Month Club warned in its review of the first edition: "...this book is guaranteed to choke you up."
As with the first edition, a portion of the proceeds of this new edition of Dog Heroes of September 11th will help further the SDF's vital work in protecting and preserving our nation through the training and deployment of search and rescue dogs.
