The article explains the use of military working dogs in counterterrorism operations of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan. Since 2005, the U.S., which leads the ISAF, has trained dogs to sense explosives, where one of them, Cairo, got involved in Operation Neptune Spear, which killed al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan on May 2, 2011. British dogs of the ISAF were trained for explosive detection, vehicle search and protection.
