Special Furry Visitors At Fire Station #17 Training to Help Wounded Warriors

By: Firefighter Sean Sandifer

This past Monday, Laytonsville Fire Station #17 went to the dogs – actually puppies! 

These little pups are being trained to one day be life long friends for our wounded warriors!  The group providing the training is called Warrior Canine Connection and they train the pups to assist our wounded warriors who have suffered psychological and physical wounds.   

Part of the puppies training is to be able to work around crowds and loud sounds.  So they were taken on a field trip here to Station #17, as one of their training lessons, which allowed the women and men of MCFRS and Laytonsville Volunteer Fire Department to do our part for our wounded warriors!
