Alpha Dogs - Biography - Netflix
White was born in Urbana, Ohio and trained the family’s German Shepherd to do basic tricks. His unit was one of the first to enter Fallujah during Operation Phantom Fury and relied heavily on specially trained dogs to sniff out bombs, contraband, and enemy combatants. After his combat service, White’s security details for the Secret Service included Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Vice-President Dick Cheney. White worked with bomb-detecting and protection dogs during his White House details and then started training dogs for private clients. He did demonstrations in dog parks and advertised in local trade magazines, eventually leaving the Secret Service in 2010 to open Off Leash K9 Training. White’s clients include private dog owners, military and law enforcement professionals, athletes, and entertainers. In March 2013, White worked with Vohne Liche Kennels of the National Geographic reality show Alpha Dogs for an upcoming episode. White is also on the board for the Prince William County Humane Society and helped establish their Warrior Buddies Program which pairs shelter dogs with returning war veterans, free-of-charge. White has also regularly appeared on the show “The Pet Show with Dr. Katy Nelson” as a consultant for the show.
