Military dogs are dogs that are used to complement the various tasks that are needed to carry out a military operations. To some, this may seem to be contrary to humanitarian principles. But I look at it like this – This is how dogs first evolved – as a companion in hunting, and in fact, gun dogs like the Hungarian Vizsla are in use by even non military personnel.
All of a dog’s functions that are superior to those of a human, are used to round off an operation that would otherwise lack their fine capabilities. So let’s proceed by looking at a dog’s superior functions:
Smell and Hearing
The dog’s superior sense of smell, makes them very useful when used as Detection Dogs. These dogs are utilized to sniff out very small traces of the substance to be detected. They can include illegal narcotics, explosives, and even humans, as search dogs.
Speed and Aggressiveness
I know from experience that even a seasoned dog handler feels a chill up his spine when he sees a real threatening snarl from a German Shepherd. These dogs known as K9 (like ‘canine’) dogs are used to hunt down suspects, or prevent them from escaping. Apart from the German Shepherd, commonly used dogs also include the Doberman, and the American Pit Bull Terriers.
Easy to Train and Loyal
Dogs such as Attack Dogs can be specifically trained to chase and incapacitate (But not necessarily kill) targets. Dogs like the Irish Wolfhound are used for this purpose.
The loyalty of all the breeds are beyond question and all make excellent watchdogs, yet some breeds like the Bullmastiff are admirable guard dogs whose job doesn’t end with merely scaring away the intruder, but actively stopping them, and restraining them. Once again, the desired result can be easily achieved with training.

The regulations of each country regarding the transportation of live animals varies greatly. However, our 10 years experience of shipping dogs to over 80 countries makes us your best option to have your dog shipped. We fully comply with the regulations of each destination and make our dog's well-being the number one priority at all times. Our dogs get food and water during their travel and their crates are cleaned in an animal holding facility. They travel in a climate controlled room on the airplane, which insures that they are effected by the journey as little as possible.
At Euro Puppy, every dog comes with an ISO compatible microchip ($30 value) at no extra cost. Microchipping is now an international standard and is no more painful than a vaccination. The microchip can normally be detected between the shoulder blades of the dog. In the US, AVID chips are used and AVID chip readers will not detect the ISO compatible microchips. Please make sure your reader can read ISO compatible chips.
You will find our service to provide great value for money, as our prices include:
You get the all this, plus a fury little thing you'll love for life.
Airlines have strict regulations regarding the dimensions and quality of the crates allowed on board. The crate must be escape and leak-proof. It must be ventilated on at least two sides and must provide enough room for the dog to stand up and turn around. We make sure to provide the right crate ($75 value) for your puppy at no extra cost.
In addition, the official, on duty veterinarian at the airport checks each dog to make sure it is healthy and fit to travel. This is how all of our puppies are double checked before they travel.
