JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas - Ariel Guerrero, lead caretaker with the 341st Training Squadron Animal Caretakers, walks Kkeating, a military working dog, during his morning exercise on Aug. 17, 2022. Caretakers now have the option of using a new device, called a gentle leader, while exercising MWDs who pull during their walks. A gentle leader is a head collar that goes around a dog's snout to prevent them from pulling when being walked. Using the collar benefits the dogs and caretakers by preventing excessive pulling that can exhaust them, as well as preventing tripping or falling.(U.S. Air Force photo by C Arce)
