On Wednesday, 50 teams of military and civilian police working dogs and their handlers took part in a training exercise at Fort Carson, and from the looks of this canine, who would want to challenge him in a dark alley?

The training included practice of skills such as scouting, searching buildings, and sniffing out explosives and drugs, according to a press release. In addition, the teams also went through drills of how to respond when a suspect is barricaded inside a building or decides to flee.

Civilian teams from Colorado towns and urban areas participated, as well as military teams from Army and Air Force installations around the country.
