U.S. Air Force expeditionary security forces squadron military working dog handlers and their MWDs participate in a controlled aggression exercise at an undisclosed location in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility, Nov. 7, 2023. MWDs undergo physical conditioning to maintain their strength, agility, and stamina. Handlers are also responsible for the physical aspect of each dog, including bathing, grooming, exercising, and feeding their dogs. Military working dogs are also prone to injuries, so being able to deal with cuts, scrapes, broken nails, broken teeth, and more is vital. (U.S. Air Force photos by Airman 1st Class Stassney Davis)
