Im so proud how far we have come as he would also go at people (with not as much intensity) and those who approached me ahhhh! This boy i am So PROUD of him and I have learnt so much along the ways I have to give so much credit to trainer #7 @stevethedogtrainer for educating, pushing and showing me along with my handling skills well building my and Ozzies confidence. I always seen so much more good than bad in Ozzie at home he was the perfect boy.

During the First World War, #dogs played an important role for both sides. The Allies had an estimated 20,000 plus dogs, while the Central Powers (#Germany) utilized as many as 30,000 plus for various roles such as Messenger dogs, Patrol dogs and Sentry dogs during the War. As the War wore on, an important partner would help both sides, they were called “Red Cross dogs” also known as “Ambulance dogs” or “Mercy dogs” but firstly introduced and trained by the #Germans who called them” Sanitatshunde” (Sanitary)
.
.

These dogs were trained to detect in silence (never to bark as it would alert the other side of its position) and help the injured by returning with either the wounded man’s helmet or some other part of his uniform to indicate that they had located someone in need while staying back and giving comfort to those that were dying.They were equipped with a saddlebag of medical supplies, holding food for both dog and man and in some cases a bottle of #liquor.
They were also used to bring medicine back and forth in the trenches.
.
.

There were around 10,000 Red Cross dogs of many breeds #germanshepherds #boxers #Dobermans #airedales #collies #bulldogs #bloodhounds #retrievers #foxterriers that saw active duty during the First World War but purebreds didn’t have an advantage over mixed breeds as thousands were of the mixed variety.
What was of importance was that the dog displayed the proper character, good temper and disposition as well as good eyesight and a keen sense of smell. Ideally as well dogs of grayish or black in color were favored.
.
.

Trench warfare in the front lines ended with World War One and with it went the necessity of ever to use Red Cross dogs again but only after being credited in saving countless lives.

Working on Greta’s recall! Buck will always come if he thinks there’s even the smallest chance of getting the smallest crumb. (BTW, even though I didn’t call him, I still gave him a piece of cheese to reinforce him willingly coming to me when he hears my voice.)
