SOCom seeks performance-enhancing products for its commando dogs | Tampa Bay Times

U.S. Special Operations Command is looking for more effective ways to unleash the hounds of war.

The command headquartered at MacDill Air Force Base is asking small business to develop nutrients or pharmaceutical products that will improve the performance of its own working dogs. At the same time, SOCom is seeking ways to inhibit the work of pooches used by the enemy.

SOCom relies on dogs for jobs like detecting explosives and enemy personnel and works to keep enemy dogs from exposing its secrets.
