K-9 Artifact Finders Program: Training Dogs To Stop The Illicit Trade Of Antiquities (Antiquities)

Antiquities: K-9 Artifact Finders Program: Training Dogs To Stop The Illicit Trade Of Antiquities. “Dogs have been part of the archaeological record since ancient times. Now, thanks to the K-9 Artifact Finders Program, dogs will have the opportunity to play a role in protecting that record. It is commonplace to see trained dogs in tandem with law enforcement officers working to keep airports safe, find missing persons, or track down illicit substances. However, if this new and unprecedented program, run by researchers at Red Arch Cultural Heritage Law and Policy Research, in partnership with Penn Vet Working Dog Center, is successful, trained dogs will also be able to sniff out looted and illicitly traded artifacts.”
