Behind the ‘Dream Team,’ handler and K9 share unbreakable bond

Senior Airman Jenna Canada, 51st Security Forces Squadron military working dog handler, embraces Akim, her MWD, at Osan Air Base, Republic of Korea, Nov. 17, 2021. A MWD handler is responsible for protecting and defending a base with their canine by their side. Prior to becoming a handler, members must spend a minimum of 18 months in service as a Security Forces specialist. Canada spent approximately three years at Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, performing Security Forces duties before starting the program to become a handler.
