Fun sits obediently in front of the suitcase while his handler, customs officer Yu Xiaodong, crouches and pats him压博娱乐登入开户后花园品茶微信
on the head as encouragement. Yu then uses a rolled-up towel to play a tug-of-war game with Fun.
“Tug-of-war is the biggest motivation for these dogs to work,” he said. “By dragging the towel, the excitability of the dogs can be cultivated.”压博娱乐登入开户后花园
Yu said the dogs rely on their acute sense of smell. “Without unpacking the luggage, the sniffer dogs are faster and more accurate than manual inspections.
“压博娱乐登入开户后花园品茶微信With the emergence of new kinds of drugs, these sniffer dogs need to update their sensibilities to detect the new stuff.”
New synthetic drugs including stimulants similar to amphetamines are appearing constantly, according to the Supreme People’s P

“In accordance with the different tasks, the detection dogs in custo压博娱乐登入开户后花园品茶微信

Yu said Fun had been working for more than a year and can distinguish five different types of drugs.
