Air Force K9 Dog Handler Careers



Print Friendly
The program that deals with the Department of Defense Military working dog program is the United States Air Force. Air Force Dog handlers work with their canines to train and detect explosives, or find drugs in a number of different situations. There are over 1300 working Dog handler teams worldwide, and the working dogs from the other services; Army, Navy, and Marine Corps have been through the Air Force Dog Handler Team program. The 341st Squadron is responsible for training Dog Handler Teams, and it is located at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas.

Do You Like Working With Dogs?

Working as an Air Force K9 Dog handler involves working together with your assigned dog to train and learn how to perform the detection mission. On a single day as many as 108 different dogs may be working and training, with their handlers at the Air Force Base. Dogs are exposed to training regimes that teach both the dog and handler how to deal with different types of situations. There are two different types of Dog handler missions:

Drug Interdiction: This is the mission where the K9 handler and dog work as a team to learn to detect and reveal hidden supplies of drugs. Part of the training mission for these dog handler teams is handled along the border with Mexico, because of the sheer availability of drugs and the need for odor of drugs, training is conducted in both the classroom and in live actual field training exercises, using real supplies of drugs and illegal narcotics to train and reward the dogs efforts.

Bomb Sniffing: This is the mission where the Air Force handler and his dog work to learn how to recognize and detect the presence of bombs and explosives hidden in luggage, packages and other materials. This is an intensive program, and the dogs and handlers work hard in learning the specific methods that are used to try and slip explosives by. All military dog handling teams, both in the Air Force and in the other services are trained at the 341st Squadron facility, which is known as the Dog School. Each year the dog school trains about 300 detector dogs a year. A trained dog will be either a bomb detection dog, or a drug dog.

Personnel, who are headed for training for handler complete basic training, then are assigned to the dog school for their technical school training. They are paired with a dog, and work to become a trained detection team.

I am former special forces and am a veterinarian by trade. I would like to inquire if there is an opportunity to volunteer to go service the K-9 forces in Iraq/Afghanistan. Please contact me at —– or email should there be any information you could provide.

Thanks ever so much.

As far as I know, if you’re not a SrA you’ll need a waiver and a commander’s recommendation. Aside from that, you’ll need to be finished with your CDC’s and have 2 years on station before you can apply. Requirements to get into the school change quite often, so check before you put in your package to go to school because if you’re denied you can’t apply again for a couple of years.

Does the Air Force have other K-9 jobs, such as Search & Rescue?
If someone is already in the AF, can they re-train for a K-9 job (if they’re up for reenlistment)?
Thank you.

yes, my son is a marine and is going to MP school and wants to be a dog handler for the us marines, he has proven himself so far, he finished as Honor Grad. out of boot camp and then, top marine at MCT and now he starts his school in Missouri, and i was wanting to know just what’s his chances or what he might need to do, if he is wanting to be a dog handler, his recruiters want him to go for the SRT team, or the dog handler. This is a great marine and wants to go far in severing the marines and the United States Of America. If anyone has any advice for me or our marine please respond back. Thank you for your time.

Bert, I am a dog handler at Lejeune. Your son getting a seat in k9 school depends on the slots open and if he does well on the board for the school. He sounds like a squared away marine. I competed against 28 marines for my spot and was honor grad. Just tell him to keep talking to his instructors about it. If he doesnt get it through mp school there is an option to do on the job training and then get sent from there to school. OJT is better in terms of going to the school because you are TAD and dont have to live in the barracks and make more money. if he has any questions email me at [email protected]

military dot image Cory    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

Just get in shape and be prepared to do your best in training. If you work hard and do the right thing, you will get noticed and be more apt to be selected for a specialized field like k-9. Keep your nose clean until then and work out physically as much as possible to ensure you will be the best candidate.

military dot image Jon C.    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

I can’t believe I’m about to be asking a question on this site. Anyways, I am in the USAF and recently got accepted into the MWD program and I was inquiring about the specifics of the course and what one can expect upon arrival, TDY pay (decent?), well an overall general feel of the program. My DEROS is in the spring, so I’m expecting to be attending the school next summer and I’m currently serving at a GSU with no K9 handlers here for me to ask questions. Any information would be appreciative.

What I want to know is if you want to do this kind of job do you have to go through boot camp?


military dot image Lindsey    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

I would like to respond to the 1st post. Sometimes they will take trainees straight from BMT, to TECH SCHOOL, then STRAIGHT to K-9. In special cases when they are in great NEED of handlers, you can enlist as a handler instead of having to cross train.


military dot image Lindsey    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

And to also respond to MBowling…to do any job in the USAF, you MUST go through Basic Training


military dot image Tyler    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

Ok here is the deal. You can not go through Basic then to tech school then straight to tech school. It hasn’t been that way in 20 years and it will never be that way again. Get through basic then go to tech school. Get to your first base and ensure you stand out (in a good way). At your two year mark you can request a retrain as long as you have your 5-level (CDC’s done). There are links on the AFPC website to guide you through this process. They need handlers very bad, but they will never take some dumb airman right out of tech school.


military dot image Kyle    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

Does anybody know the answer to this — I am currently in Air Force ROTC, and I was wondering, do AF officers get to handle and train a dog? I am extremely interested in dog handling but I would like to know whether or not I would actually have a dog that I train and am partnered with. Thank you!

I have always wanted to be a k-9 police officer. I did not want to wait. so i am thinking about the k-9’s in the Air Force. I am in the Air Force ROTC right now. My current rank is Airman. I am very happy with what i am in.

I would like to become an Air Force k-9 dog handler, but I was wondering where you have to start to become one and the procedures of it.


military dot image Alexis    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

And I would also like to know if Air Force Officers can be dog handlers


military dot image bree    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

you can keep the dog, but only after the dog retires or gets hurt (not able to do the duties anymore). To be honest I’m not sure how many years dogs normally do. Id guess around 5 years. The dogs are put up for adoption after, but I’m sure there are tests done to make sure the dog is adoptable (the dogs go through a lot of training, and are very protective of their handlers and can get snippy with strangers).

No Air Force officers can’t be dog handlers, they handle the administrative side of operations. To be a K9 dog handler you have to go through basic training, have security forces as a job, do the job for so long (at least 2 years) and make sure your job package is good to apply for K9. K9 is part of the security forces career field just a different section. You’re competing for the K9 spots along with other security forces members so you want to have good enlisted performance reviews (EPRs) every year, stay out of trouble, do well on your CDCs and have job knowledge, do volunteer work, and start school. Those are the things that you’re competing against the other security forces members with.

training required after you get accepted to the K9 school is 3 months at Lackland AFB, TX

The majority of K9 dogs I’ve seen are german shephards. Cocker spaniels are more family friendly dogs


military dot image bree    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

And your job as K9 is not to train the dog from scratch. Most of the training is done by a professional before you get a dog assigned to you. Your job is basically to take care of the dog, companion to the dog, assisting with K9 operations. You do training exercises with dogs also, but my point is you aren’t training a dog with absolutely no experience on how to detect bombs and drugs in vehicles.

You do deploy frequently also with this job.

Im a senior in High School, going to be 18 in April. I have been down to MEPS, sworn in and attend DEP meetings with my Air Force recruiter routinely. I am still undecided on a job but i want to expand on my job choices, From the beginning of my research before i enlisted, K-9 Handler in the USAF really caught my eye. After reading multiple pages i am still confused. It seems like i have to sign for security forces and after that just hope i get lucky and get K-9 handler, is this how it works or can I be sure before i go down and just ask fo this job in some way other than just telling my recruiter that i want security forces (3P031), but hope to get dog handler. I have heard that security forces can be a job that sucks and your stand guard, i do not want this and have my mind made up on K-9 handler as an idea. I’d appreciate a reply ASAP, thank you for your time


military dot image Haleboi    Thumb up 0 Thumb down 0

Schreffler, I’m in the Air Force and in Security Forces and I leave on the 9th of February for K-9 school. To answer your question, yes you have to go to Security Forces first and you’ll have to complete your five level CDC’s which is basically a set of books for your job knowledge and you’ll take a multiple choice test on them which gives you college credit. Upon completing your CDC’s you will be awarded your 5 level and you are not longer 3P031 but instead 3P051. K-9 school prefers SrA but if you’re on top of your game and can get the eyes of everyone on you as a “high speed” troop and spend some of your off time at the kennels with some handlers and learn all you can, then you can go to your commander and ask if he would sign a waiver for you to go. K-9 is always hurting for people because once you make Tech Sgt or E6 you have to either turn into a kennel master or go back into be “straight leg” security forces which is back to normal security forces. I could talk to you more about security forces in general but in order not to offend people i’ll do it through email if you would like @ [email protected]

Yes, there is. The other “main shred” is Combat Arms, you train cops and regular air force personnel on weapons marksmanship of everything from pistol, rifle, light and heavy machine guns, as well as grenade launcher, if your base has them. There is a ton of other opportunities such as; Raven, which is security for aircraft when they land in foriegn countries; counter sniper, basicly sniper trained but used mostly for defense roles; SRT (SWAT); corrections; investigations, which is usually the lower felony and misdemeanor range of crimes; office junkies; working security for Special Forcs units and JSOC; foriegn security ambassador; ect. Many of these jobs are specialized and only come around once in a while and you must be in top shape and have not recieved negative performance reports. People who hate our job are the people who never pushed to get into a special job and rot on the flight line watching aicraft fly around.

Ever since I was 10 i wanted to be a K-9 handler. What are the wages of being a MWD handler? Thanks!

Hi Devon, awesome career. Such a career reveals passion for animals. Amazing to see how the military includes animals today. I would google/research each individual military branch and follow up with a call to a local recruiter. Good luck!

I am interested in learning more about k9…would there be a chance to have a granted scholarship program that is from the Philippines?I am a handler for almost a year now.

Hi Scarlett, great military job with working with K9s. I would call your local Air Force recruiter and ask specific questions about your personal situation. Not sure if you’re an U.S. citizen or not, but either way, it would be valuable for you to speak to your air force recruiter and get K9 military career info. My best!

Please advise:
I have a new neighbor who has a german sheperd about 5-6 months old. He claims the dog is in military training. Since he has moved in, several neighbors have complained about the noise factor. The dog is left out on the terrace all day crying (loudest dog cry i ever heard)on and off at all times of day 5AM, 6AM, midnight you name it. Many times i have seen feces and dog urine on the terrace all day and the dog is stuck out there living in his own waste crying all day. The weather is changing, it is getting hotter out. Aside from the fact that i am not getting enough sleep, i am a dog lover and know everyone has there own way with there own animal. This situation bothers me due to the fact that the guy lives in a small studio apartment. How can you raise a dog in such a small space then limit him to the terrace all day rain or no rain with no shade or shelter. Does anyone know about military dog training that can help clarify wether it is possible for this guy to be telling the truth or is he full of crap like i suspect ? Both the police and ASPCA have been to his apartment but unfortunately either he isn’t home or hides. I am pretty sure The Army would not be happy with the way this dog lives. No room for growth, exercise or stimulation. Please advise.

Thank you for your concern Neighbor. My advice is to not only contact the local police (always a ‘local police’ for all areas of residence) and to ‘follow up’ with them inquiring about results/corrections. At the same time, I would contact your local Army recruiter and inquire same unless there is a local Army base which would likely have some connection with dog training. If so, make the call. Lastly, you also have the Humane Society. Read below. Above all, remain active and follow through. THANK YOU FOR CARING AND TAKING ACTION!! PLEASE DON’T GIVE UP! My best, LF

  • Make the call
  • If you make a report of alleged animal cruelty, the responding agency is required to investigate. Dialing 911 is the quickest route to get a response, but it is also useful to have the proper animal welfare agency’s number on hand.
    Be prepared: Do an online search to identify the agency—your local animal control department, animal shelter or humane society—in your area, and program the number into your cell phone.
    If you’re traveling or live in a community without an animal welfare agency, call the local police department (or 911) to report suspected animal abuse.

    If your area lacks the proper animal welfare agency, and your local authorities are not equipped to deal with animal cruelty cases, you can also email or call The HSUS and ask to speak with one of our experts about the suspected abuse.

      Take charge

    You can also go one step further and learn how to start up a local animal welfare agency if you live in an underserved community.

    I have read a lot on here & amp; I agree with many people that this is one of the best informational sites. I have 10 years of working as a pack leader w/dogs. I have the passion & amp; drive to be a part of helping/working with dogs, assisting someone or the kennel, anything but I’m a civilian & not looking to be in the Military. I have the most respect; honor those who serve. So combine the 2 (dogs & the men/women who serve of Country) is the area I want to be involved in. Are there any kind of jobs for civilians? I am willing to move. I’m not looking to be a handler. I understand the importance of security this has to have but really want a chance or some kind direction. I am already signed up for Dogs on Deployment (DoD is watching/boarding peoples dogs when they are deployed & have no one to care for them). Please email me. God Bless America!

    I apologize if this question has been asked but I work for a local rescue and we think we have a dog that would make a perfect military K-9. How would we go about seeing if the dog would be accepted?

I love working with animals I plan on becoming a veterinarian assistant when I get older.Do we have to take the asvab even if we know what job I’d like ?

    My entire life I wanted to work with dogs and put my all into serving this great country of ares I have many questions about becoming a military dog handler if any one is willing to give me any advice please contact me at 1-(505)-801-5170 Thank you

    Yes you have to take the ASVAB regardless of what job you choose in the AF. It actually determines what jobs you can apply for. MWD training falls under Security Forces and you have to complete Basic and Tech School. For a four year enlistee and (not sure as to I am not a 6 year enlistee) I believe its the same for six years you have to hit your 2 year mark in the AF before you can retrain. Also you must not have a UIF and EPR should be completed.
