Bomb sniffing dogs were swarming Busch Stadium Tuesday night. There was no a security threat. It was an important training mission for the dogs and their handlers before heading to Afghanistan. Ft. Leornard Wood’s Engineer K-9 Company, the 94th & 67th Engineer Detachments, the only company of its kind, came up to the ballpark for off-base training.

The company currently has members deployed in Afghanistan and has taken casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan while saving the lives of their fellow US troops.

“It teaches them a lot more than normal training does,” said Staff Sgt. Donald Pritchard. “We set up different training areas and get the dogs into a new environment and the handlers in a new environment, because if they see the same thing all the time, they kind of get used to it.”
