Lara Logan gets a rare look into the secretive world of working dogs — some of whose capabilities are military secrets — and their handlers.

The following script is from “Sniffing For Bombs” which aired on April 21, 2013. Lara Logan is the correspondent. Max McClellan, producer.

When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon, highly trained dogs were rushed to the scene to search for more explosives. Boston police have said dogs swept the streets in the morning and a second time just an hour before the first marathoners crossed the finish line. It’s considered likely that the bombers planted their devices well after the dogs finished sweeping the area. Since 9/11, dogs have been used more than ever because nothing has proven more effective against hidden bombs than the nose of a working dog.

The best of them serve with U.S. Special Operations and they’re in a league of their own. It’s nearly impossible to get anyone to talk about them publicly because much of what they do is classified, but we were able to talk to the people who train them for this story. We took the opportunity to ask about what might have happened in Boston while getting a rare glimpse inside the secretive world of America’s most elite dogs.

Green Beret Chris Corbin and his dog, Ax, are at 14,000 feet in the skies over North Carolina.

They’re about to test a new harness that America’s best soldiers will use to jump into combat. But it’s not for Corbin — it’s for Ax.

As they free-fall for nearly 10,000 feet at 125 miles an hour, Ax is wrapped in Corbin’s arms. They’ve been to war together, nearly died together, and they never like to be too far apart.

  1. Thanks for the mention. You should look at my post about “2 dogs at every door” related to the Newtown shootings. I think someone like you could make that happen. Dogs are a lot better detectors and protectors at schools then sleepy security guards who can’t run as fast, hear as well, or smell gunpower on someone clothes. Love to chat – Dogdaz.com

    1. I will do a blog on your blog! Thanks for bringing to my attention!
