They say dogs are man’s best friend and that seems to be true even of police dogs after a policeman was pictured gleefully playing with a K9 inhaler outside an Australian airport.
In a video uploaded to TikTok by Sarah Jeanette, the officer playfully swings his bloodhound and a toy in its mouth as the dogs wag their tails exuberantly.
The heartwarming clip was captured outside Cairns Airport in north Queensland, where the unit’s police dogs are regularly trained and trained on site.
The airport has a purpose-built dog training center and is home to the Australian Federal Police dog team that performs bomb assessment and drug screening.
The K9 kennel facility has been at the airport for a decade and includes a veterinary advisory room, kennel, and large exercise and training yard.
A video has surfaced online showing a police officer playfully swinging his police dog K9 with a toy in his mouth, his canine friend loving every bit of him, wagging his tail profusely
Commentators on the video said they often see police dogs playing with their trainers and being treated like royalty at the airport.
One user commented: “I have to say after working at Cairns Airport these dogs deal with this every single day and it’s such a lovely moment to see them so happy.”
A second wrote: “I saw this good lad checking bags at Cairns airport, he is such a good dog and keeps our city safe”.
A third said, “Just two good boys having fun.”
Several commenters named the dog in the video Lido, a six-year-old dog who was chosen for the role when he was just a one-year-old puppy.
Lido is one of more than 40 AFP dogs across Australia tasked with sniffing out contraband.
