Russians trained dogs to search for food under tanks, then they starved them, wrap them with explosives and set them loose when they saw an enemy tank.

The dogs were too small and fast for machine gunners to kill them, and after 300 lost tanks, the Germans fitted flamethrowers on tanks to counter the threat.

HA! No. What actually happened is they trained them to run under tanks. (none of the food stuff) but they foolishly used their own tanks to train them which used gasoline. The German tanks used diesel. So when they released them the dogs ran under their own tanks. The project was quickly scratched.

Actually that isn't true, the dogs that were trained kept going under russian tanks as a result of them not knowing to train under german tanks, it's either that or an urban myth.

they trained dogs to carry explosives to attack tanks and blow themselves up.
the problem was they trained on russian tanks. once in combat, the dogs would blow up russian tanks.

There was a problem
for the first few tests they trained them with Russian tanks.
in a real battle the dogs ran under the Russian tanks
later they captured German tanks and used those.

that is actually wrong as the russian dogs went under their own tanks as they were only familiar with the structure

Early records showed that Russian dogs could tell the difference between German and Russian tanks so after being trained with Russian tanks they would not run at the Germans but rather... well, you get the picture...

Didn't that fail because the Russians trained the dogs on Russian tanks, and they only ran under Russian tanks?

sadly there were many reports of dogs getting scared and running back to the russians and blowing them up

That isn't sad. The ******* russians should have used suicide dogs.

false the Germans never had flame throwers but instead were ordered to shoot any dog in combat areas

Fun fact. This is false. They gave up the idea for the dog bombers after the dogs always attacked Russian tanks because of the training, and they weren't as effective as they should have been.

stupid truth, always resisting simplicity!
