Canine Programs from the U.S. Customs and Border
Over 1200 CBP canine teams expedite inspections along our borders.

The CBP Canine Program remains a major component in the ability of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to interdict illegal narcotics, concealed humans, prohibited agriculture products, explosives and undeclared currency.

The CBP Canine Program has established and deployed world-class detector dog programs to augment existing technology while establishing cutting edge detection capabilities. Under these programs, the agency now provides a higher level of security and detection capability while emphasizing a seamless conduit between existing technology and the proven capabilities of detector dogs.

In order to join the Canine Program, an individual must first graduate from a CBP Academy and serve as a CBP Officer, CBP Agriculture Specialist or a CBP Border Patrol Agent for a minimum of three years. Applicants are recruited from internal job announcements and are competitively selected.

Canine Training Centers are located in both Front Royal, Va. and El Paso, TX.
