Short Synopsis
Navy SEAL Dogs is the true story of how Mike Ritland grew from a skinny, bullied child, to a member of our nation's most elite SEAL teams, to the trainer of the world's most highly skilled K9 warriors.

Full Synopsis
The Navy SEAL teams' elite K9 warriors do it all—from detecting explosives to eliminating the bad guys. These powerful dogs are also some of the smartest and most highly skilled working animals on the planet. Mike Ritland's job is to train them.

This is the tale of how Ritland discovered his passion and grew up to train these elite dogs. After becoming a SEAL, he was on combat deployment in Iraq when he saw a military working dog in action, and he instantly knew he'd found his true calling.

Ritland eventually started his own company to train and supply working and protection dogs for the U.S. government, the Department of Defense, and other clients. He also started the Warrior Dog Foundation to help retired Special Operations dogs live long and happy lives after their service.

"Fascinating. . . . About time these heroes got the attention they deserved for a young audience." ---Kirkus

"Engrossing." ---Publishers Weekly

"[T]he story tells itself and it is definitely suspenseful." ---Library Journal Audio Review
