It all started in 1969 when Alan got his very first German Shepherd.  In 1972, he donated her to the military to become a Military Working Dog with the stipulation he would be her handler after completing training. 

This began an eleven-year journey in the military (USAF & USMC) where he would train and handle five (5) different dogs as a Patrol Dog and/or Bomb/Explosives Dog Handler working on stateside bases; in the American Embassy of several foreign countries and ending his service with HMX-1, the Presidental Helicopter Sq.
