Vohne Liche Kennels (VLK), one of the most elite K-9 dog training facilities in the world. This week the pressure is on Bobby to make sure the Special Forces troops are ready to graduate from VLK's dog handling program. Later, Kenny and his team travel to a training seminar commemorating a fallen officer and former VLK student. They take the officers through training exercises, including a rappelling challenge that causes one VLK trainer to confront his fears and sends another to a hospital.
