Sniffing Out Bombs Americas most elite dogs
Logan: 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 911, 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 freefall 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. Do you think he enjoyed ité Corbin: He just wants to do whatever I'm doing. He doesn't care what it is. Logan: You've said that these dogs feel like they're invincibleé Corbin: Absolutely. Logan: What makes you say thaté Corbin: We don't train them to fail. Logan: Sergeant firstclass corbin is a dog handler with 7th special forces group, and he and sixyear old ax have been a team for three years. They
deployed to helmand in southern afghanistan at a time when more americans were dying there than any other place in the country. Corbin and ax's job was to lead their unit through a battlefield littered with hidden bombs. Corbin: We walked in front. We cleared the pass for. For everyone to move through. Logan: You say it so easily quot;i walked out frontquot; like it's nothing, but what does that actually mean when you're the one walking out fronté Corbin:
You are the one risking. I hate to say the most, but, yeah, you're out front. I'm the one who makes it safe or announces it as safe for everyone else to walk behind. Logan: What's your level of trust in your dogé Corbin: It has to be this perfect trust. Logan: Perfect trust that begins with trainers like former navy seal mike ritland. He's one of just a handful of people in this country who finds and trains these
