Border Patrol Agent

I have experience working with canines (or I just want to work with canines). What are my chances of getting a dog handler position?

With the large emphasis in the Border Patrol on drug and narcotics interdiction, the use of dogs is becoming more and more common, so your chances of working with a dog are relatively good. In order to do this; you must first be promoted to the journeyman level. Not every station has dogs, and dogs are trained for detection of humans and narcotics, not for attack. They can be a heavy responsibility since you will assume all kenneling responsibilities.
