Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Introduced as a one-shot special in November of 2002, the Animal Planet series K9 Boot Camp was filmed on location at Lackland Air Force Base. The focus was on a group of dogs recruited for specialized military training. In addition to the "basics" -- hunting, sniffing, attacking if necessary -- the canine trainees were taught how to work in sync with the human partners assigned them. The series version of K9 Boot Camp debuted August 4, 2003.
