Dogs aged 6 weeks to 7 months are fostered by community members.Given the skills these canines gain, only suitable breeds can undertake this task.

 At one year old, they are tested again, and 30–50 canines enter the formal training program each year.

Before starting patrol and detection training, dogs must learn fundamental obedience. This makes logical since they must follow basic directions before moving on to higher training.

 These prospective military dogs also conquer an obstacle course to prepare them for field difficulties. They practice windows, small crawl spaces, and staircases on the obstacle course before they meet them in the field.
