War Dogs is the story of Shane Bryant who works with highly trained dogs in Afghanistan.
After leaving the Police Force he did various jobs, eventually joining a private firm through an old army friend. The firm works mainly with the American Army in Afghanistan, in some of the most dangerous areas in the country. Here Shane became involved with the highly trained dogs that search for bombs on the roadside, in towns, and any area that troops are entering. This is perilous work and quite often Shane has been involved in enemy fire.
The conflict in Afghanistan is a very topical subject and a number of Australian soldiers who have unfortunately been killed by roadside bombs. War Dogs provides additional insight from an unusual perspective as well as an interesting story.
