The robotic training dog named “Fitz” after Col. Michael Fitzgerald, former commanding officer of Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, is utilized by military working dog handlers on the installation. Fitz can bark, whine and be used to practice various emergency scenarios. The nearest emergency veterinarian is a considerable distance away from MCLB Albany, so the handlers are effectively the first responders when their MWDs are injured or ill.
