At the APHIS National Detector Dog Training Center in Newnan, Georgia, teams of detector dogs and human officers train to prevent pests and diseases from entering the United States on smuggled agricultural products. Canines receive four months of training, where they learn the scent of agricultural contraband and how to detect it in bags, boxes, and parcels. Detector dogs are recruited from humane societies, beagle rescue groups, and private owners. Before adoption, the dogs are put through extensive temperament tests and evaluated by a licensed veterinarian. When canine officers retire from service, or if they do not meet training requirements, APHIS ensures that the dogs are adopted and placed in good homes. Individual citizens also play a vital role in preventing the establishment and spread of invasive pests and diseases. To learn more about what you can do to help, visit www.hungrypests.com.
