    K9 detection unit at DL

    Last night, while leaving the park, by the north/eastern security check area there was a large transport trailer, labeled K9 Detection Unit. It looked like it was large enough to transport about six or eight dogs. I understand after the tragedy at Virginia Tech (my heart goes out to them) that Disney has been under heightened security. They even have the old orange "Heightened Security" signs out again. I have no idea where the dogs where. But my questions: has this trailer been there all week? I don't recall seeing it. And does anyone know what specificially the dogs are used for? And since it was clearly a privately owned K9 unit (the tags were not government tags) why in the world would Disney park it in public view unless it was a deterent? (I'm assuming that these are dogs looking for explosives, not drugs).

    Anyone have info?

    It's actually there quite a bit. Usually weekends from what I've seen-

    Disneyland has had security dogs for years. They are well trained. I have seen the trailer numerous times over the last 5 years. The dogs are trained I believe for explosives. You will often see them doing a check thru NOS a couple hours before Fantasmic!. They may also have drug detection dogs, but not sure. We notice them because being security dogs, they are loud and bark. Our lil service pup who is trained not to bark looks at us like "He's in TROUBLE!" when we encounter them.

    And generally the idea is to not give out too much or any information with regards to security measures and proceedures for obvious reasons.

    Is that the unit that Disneyland uses to detect for K9s?

    Because the dogs are in the parks and DTD?

    I am not giving any info out, I haven't been up to those trailers though I have seen them from a distance. I can say that I SERIOUSLY doubt Disney would keep those dogs in there in the hot midday sun.

    I don't know, nor do I have any information of them, I am only using common sense to make a well-educated guess.

    Noone including me said you were giving out information, you'd need to possess it first. I said generally.

    I figure if Disney didn't want us to discuss it, they wouldn't park the trailer out where everyone can see it. We have talked with the handlers of the dogs in the past, and they have no problem telling you what the dogs are used for. I have a feeling we are among a minority who stops and has a chat with the dogs and handlers there.
