I'm not gonna pretend like this isn't a heavy topic and doesn't stir up ALL KINDS of emotions while I watched these videos... but I also had to share it.
In a way, it feels good to know people are trying all kinds of ways to help protect people in a tragic shooting situation. One of those ways: training dogs to run towards the sounds of gunshots, without being distracted, and taking down the shooter.
It still hurts my heart to think we're sending a dog in to be in danger, but maybe it'll work. Maybe it'll save a lot of people... and it's impressive that this one K-9 is doing pretty well with its training with a former SEAL.
Check out the video below and definitely click through to read more about how they're doing it.. plus some more videos of the training and trial runs.
