Dog owners were instrumental in forming a civilian organization called dogs for defense in 1942, with the intent to train dogs as sentries for supply depots along the coasts.
After hearing of these efforts, a pilot program was officially approved by the us army in march of 1942 and dog training centers were opened across the country.
