Military dogs get ‘real feel’ bite training with fake skin sleeves that bleed | Marine Corps Times

Dr. Stephen Lee, a senior scientist with the Army Research Office, designed a sleeve device for military dogs that has a flesh-like sensation and can bleed to simulate actual biting. The circumference of the arm was also reduced giving it “authentic human skin texture”. The new bite training device acts as a “polishing tool,” he said. Lee and his teams also developed gears like advanced eye protection and hearing protection to prepare military working dogs for real scenarios after they have learned the fundamentals.
