Wake up Maggie! We think we’ve got something to say to you! It’s almost September, and you really shouldn’t just sit there and drool. Just kidding! Maggie is a hard working doggo, and she deserves some rest every now and then. She’s an explosives detection canine and she works with her handler at the Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD).

TSA trains and deploys about 350 TSA-led and local law enforcement-led canine teams per year to operate in the aviation, multimodal, mass transit, and cargo environments. Once trained, these very effective, mobile teams can quickly locate and identify dangerous materials that may present a threat to transportation systems. The canines are often seen working in some of the nation’s largest airports. TSA has been training canines in explosives detection since 2001.
