A Charlotte company is playing a key role in protecting our country’s special forces. The secret weapon of units like Navy Seals, the UK Ministry of Defense and the Secret Service is dogs.
They are the real front line of national security. The canines are trained for some of the most dangerous missions around the world, often sent in first under extreme conditions.
Jason Watson, the Owner of Recon K9, actually started in the pet business. Now he helps create the products that protect these secret weapons and allow them to repel, parachute, and move into dangerous and often rough terrain.
Watson visits with military groups and special forces around the country talking about the needs of various missions. “We custom create a special product specific to their needs so it’s not necessarily a one size fits all.”
Recon K9 serves Tier One special ops teams in the military, defense and law enforcement including CMPD, Waxhaw and Huntersville.
Watson said, “The health and welfare of the dog is first and foremost in our minds.
