TSA: 'No More Scary, Pointy-Eared Dogs'

According to the Los Angeles Times, TSA Administrator David Pekoske said the agency will begin deploying more "floppy-eared" dogs, rather than "pointy-eared" dogs, to sniff out explosives in public areas.

“We find the passenger acceptance of floppy-ear dogs is just better,” he said. “It presents just a little bit less of a concern. Doesn’t scare children.”

The agency says it trains seven breeds of dogs: German shepherds (pointy ears), Labrador retrievers (floppy ears), German shorthaired pointers (floppy ears), wirehaired pointers (floppy ears), Vizslas (floppy ears), Belgian Malinois (pointy ears) and golden retrievers (floppy ears).
