Military dog handlers with the 550th Military Working Dog Detachment, 16th Military Police Brigade (Airborne), practiced controlled aggression and daily obedience training April 12, at Fort Bragg.

Controlled aggression training is intended to stress a military working dog’s ability to follow complex commands in stressful environments.

In parallel to a Soldier’s daily physical fitness training, working dogs practice physical and mental exercises with their assigned Soldier every day.
