You have already seen them at the airport, walking with their dog handlers. These German Shepherds work with the Airport Patrol to ensure the safety of passengers.
They should not be confused with the dogs of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). Their role is to detect illegal food, large amounts of cash, and drugs.
The canine unit is responsible for protecting facilities, aircrafts and passengers. You may even have seen them in action during one of their exercises.
Did you know that it is possible to collect dog cards from the dog unit?
The next time you are at the airport, go meet the handlers. In addition to chatting with them, you may receive a collectable dog card.
