A Place That K-9 Dogs Can Call Home

When you first see a K-9 unit dog, your first reaction may resemble pity, as you think about the cage that the beautiful dog most likely suffers in. When it comes to the TSA’s K-9 division, think again. To their handlers, these dogs are more than just a work partner, they are family – literally.

In order to foster a trusting and loving relationship, the TSA and other law enforcement agencies require that handlers take care of their bomb sniffing dogs 24/7, which means taking them home, feeding them, playing with them, and and having them interact with the rest of your loved ones. Just like humans, a healthy and loving relationship at home often leads to better work while on the job.
