A few years ago, we wrote about the officers and service dogs from the K-9 Unit of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority. These specially-trained teams manage the serious work of protecting the public from harm at airports in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.  And four years later, these teams still enjoy training in our warehouse.
