You might be aware that recently we traveled south to spend a few days at Fort Meade in Maryland filming the day to day training of the 241st Military Police K-9 Section. To say it was an honor is an understatement. We left the Canine Soldiers and their handlers with an amazing appreciation and a new understanding of all the hard work they do every day to protect this country.
But I didn’t feel we had the complete story yet and through our newly made military connections we have been given the opportunity to travel to Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio in December or January to continue filming. Lackland is where the Department of Defense raises and trains all our Armed Forces’ dogs. We’ll actually get to see how it all starts for Military Working Dogs and I think it would be just what our video needs.
But we might not be able to go without your help!
The cost of flying four Dog Files crew members round trip to Texas and getting hotel rooms for them for one week is more then we can afford.
Keep in mind that at this time, The Dog Files is not a profit-making venture. We are not financed or sponsored by any major companies. We are doing this to celebrate the love we all have for our dogs. In the near future, we hope to be picked up by a television network or sponsor, but in the mean time everything is out of pocket.
Here are a few ways you can help us document our furry soldiers! Simply order a T-Shirt or a Mug (or both) from The Dog Files Shop. Or, you can just donate to The Dog Files in the red “Chip In” widget at the top of this post.
With your help, I believe we can put together a beautiful multi-part Dog Files episode all about the heroic canines that put their lives on the line for their fellow soldiers and for each and every one of us.
Thanks so much and give your hounds a hug for us!
