There are many types of working dogs in our society, all of which help us live better lives. But while guide dogs, service dogs, and search and rescue dogs may be familiar to most people, the work of mine detection dogs may not. What kind of dogs become mine detection dogs? How are they trained? How do they actually find mines? In this book, I’ll take the young audience to Bosnia and Herzegovina where puppies are born and trained and to the mine field of Cambodia where mine detection dogs work. My hope is that more children will be touched by these amazing dogs, and begin to take a greater interest in the issue of land mines.
