Dogs for Defense: K-9 Corps 3-5

This program is customized to best fit grade levels 3rd - 5th.
At a time when every American was asked to make sacrifices for the American war effort, World War II marked the establishment of Dogs for Defense, a program to which families donated their pet dogs to serve in the U.S. military. These four-legged recruits were transformed through training from loving pets into working troops. Students participate in fun activities to learn about the ideal breeds chosen to best fulfill the duties needed to serve in the K-9 Corps.
