    • K9 Handler Wallace works for US Customs and Border Protection, not the TSA. CBP Agriculture Specialists usually have a degree in science (biology/chemistry etc.) and she uses that knowledge in concert with her canine partner to protect the nation’s food, flora, fauna chain and species. Her partner is trained to sniff out certain items that can contain pests that have the potential to decimate components of that chain.
