Canine Protection for Consumers
Protecting the food that makes its way to your dinner table demands not only government oversight, but also the sharp olfactory skills of specially trained dogs. Jason Shoultz heads to the Port of Oakland, California, where dogs are important tools in tracking down dangerous pests that could devastate agriculture in America.

The specially trained dogs are used by the U.S. Customs Service to inspect incoming shipments of agricultural products. Working with customs agents, the dogs sniff through cargo and help prevent problems before they can impact our food supply.
