The Navy SEAL Museum and the Role of
Multipurpose Canines

The Navy SEAL Museum has long had a close relationship with Multipurpose Canines. Combat Assault Dogs serve an important part in the SEAL Teams and have a long history of being distinguished teammates. The Museum honors this heritage by educating the public with the relationship of two very special canines.

This history translates with Working Dogs Raven and Bullet, who share the same Belgian Malinois heritage and are trained with the same philosophies. Training begins at just 10 weeks old for these dogs, and it continues throughout their lives.

The Belgian Malinois, also known as the Belgian Shepherd, is the predominant breed utilized by SEAL Teams. Favored for their intelligence, agility, loyalty, and stealth, Belgian Malinois are fierce and fast with acute vision. Lighter and leaner than the German Shepherd traditionally employed as the police working dog, the Belgian Malinois sports a compact frame, which is advantageous when tandem parachute jumping or rappelling, an intrinsic part of many SEAL missions. Their exceptional sense of smell makes these canines an optimal breed for detecting Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

Under the direction of Baden K-9, Raven and Bullet continue their extensive and rigorous training to ensure currency in their capability and sociability. Their ongoing education includes explosive detection training, search and rescue, and other highly specialized tactical work. Often on the Museum’s campus, Raven and Bullet have the unique privilege of learning their roles as deliberate working dogs, while maintaining their ability to navigate the public arena affably. While their personalities are very different, Raven and Bullet are both great assets to the Museum and delight thousands of guests annually.

Raven and Bullet have been exposed to countless training and tactical challenges, increasing both their stability and their significance as an invaluable part of the Navy SEAL Museum. They have participated in countless educational and tactical demonstrations around the nation, and continue to serve as ambassadors for the Museum’s K9 Project.

Baden K-9 and Tactical Schools is a family owned and operated business located in Ontario Canada. For over 40 years they have bred, raised and trained true Working Dogs for military, law enforcement and elite clientele for a global market.

Their mission is and has always been to provide the very best stable and confident dogs in an ever challenging world. With a combined experience of over 65 years, they remain a singular source for ancient genetics, which enable the dogs to meet any and all tasks they are given. Their motto is “A step above and a mile ahead” and this Christian-based company is dedicated to being just that.
