Dog’s Role in the War on Terror at the Olympics

MSNBC recently filed a report on the dogs being used to sniff out explosives during this summer’s Olympic games.

In this video, Benson, a Labrador Retriever, struts his stuff. He’s one of the new so-called “passive” alert dogs. In the past, dogs were used primarily to sniff out stationary targets such as suspicious packages left on trains. Now, they are being trained to go into crowds of people and find the one who smells like explosives.

The Olympic games are expected to be the U.K.’s largest security operation during peacetime, with 13,500 military personnel, 12,000 police and 10,000 private contractors. Dogs like Benson are valued not only for their noses, but also for their public relations abilities. Everybody likes a dog, right?

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
