Wondering what path a person, presumably fresh in the military or pre-contract civilian, would have to pursue in order to become a K9 handler on an ODA team. If even possible to chose that field without prior experience. Thanks.

First enlist into Security Forces. You have to cross train in order to become a dog handler (24, or 36 months depending on enlistment).

SF in this post stands for Special Forces. That's why it was posted in the Army Special Forces subforum. Regardless, your profile indicates that you aren't in the military yet. Therefore, leave the answering of questions to those with the background to answer them. Thanks.
