Mall of America K9 Dogs

Security at the fair has been beefed up this year.  K9 dogs, usually seen at Mall of America, made their way through the fairgrounds last week to make sure all was clear.  Neil Throndsen and his dog, Chuck, join us!

Mall of America has one of the top K9 Explosive Detection Units in the nation.  It consists of 15 dogs each with a dedicated handler.  Each dog and handler unit trains together exclusively and the dog lives with the handlers when they are not working.  The dog’s career usually lasts for 10 years.
