|Military dogs get ‘real feel’ bite training with fake skin sleeves that bleed|
|I got this from the MPRA Dispatch. The link will take you to The Army Times. I hope you enjoy the article. I had never thought about designing flesh and blood sleeves. I just thought about keeping the dog on the sleeve and not getting my flesh and blood in his mouth. |
When a military dog sinks its teeth into the bulky suit of its trainer, the dog gains experience about what to do in the real world, but it also can pick up some bad habits. Until now, there hasn’t been a good solution. So, Army scientists have designed a more realistic sleeve device that not only feels like flesh but can bleed like flesh, too. The added realism helps focus and polish the training.
