Nine detection dogs of the entry-exit inspection and quarantine bureaus in Guangzhou, Dongguan, Jiangmen and Shunde recently competed at a special competition held in Guangzhou.

Detection dogs, also known as sniffer dogs, are dogs trained to use their sense of smell to detect substances such as explosives, illegal drugs, wildlife scat, currency, blood, and contraband electronics such as illicit mobile phones.

As a supplement to manual inspection and X rays at security checkpoints, they have been widely dispatched all across Guangdong's entry-exit inspection and quarantine bureaus. Held by the Guangdong Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, the competition consisted of three events—basic techniques, detection of illegal articles in static luggage and in moving luggage.
