The Tactical Explosive Detector Dog (TEDD) Program was created by the US Army and uses specially trained dogs to search for explosive devices. Approximately 100 such dogs are deployed to Afghanistan at any time. The dogs are trained to conduct "road clear" operations where they search for IEDs just ahead of where the army unit is traveling.
UXOInfo.com sponsor, TripWire, handles dogs trained for the program and they will be featured in National Geographic's "Alpha Dogs," Friday, Feb. 15 at 9:30 PM. Don't miss it!.
