  • I would describe Diesel as a miniature version of me.

  • He is small, he is loud, and he is sassy.

  • He thinks that he's the center of my attention all the time.

  • But I am very strict with him because he is not a pet.

  • My role here at the airport is to make people feel safe.

  • We want people to know that there's a security presence here and that if there's something here, we're going to find it.

  • We're looking for explosives or anything suspicious.

  • We do everything from checking cars, bags, garbage cans, passengers lining up...

  • We go to the restricted side, we can do planes.

  • So, we're very universal here.

  • We are working a lot with the police and we respond to a lot of serious calls.

  • And then, a lot of it is also us training, to make sure that Diesel stays on his toes and he knows that he's not just strolling around the airport for fun.

  • Yes! Good boy!

  • The reason why we train so much is because, in an environment like this, it's very unique.

  • There's people everywhere.

  • People who don't speak English, people who are scared of dogs, which is something that I deal with a lot.

  • When Diesel finds something, you can tell a switch goes off in his brain.

  • Like he becomes very serious and very focused.

  • He doesn't care about food, he doesn't care about toys, until he finds what he's looking for.

  • Yes! Good boy!

  • Good job! Good boy!

  • I have always been pretty determined about what I wanted to do.

  • I knew that I wanted to work with animals. I just didn't know how to get into that.

  • So, I decided to go into law enforcement studies.

  • And Securiguard actually came to my school and did a presentation about their canine program.

  • As soon as I saw that this was a possibility, I was like, right in.

  • It didn't feel like work when I was training, and it didn't feel like work when I was working.

  • So, I was like, "This is great. They're paying me to do stuff that I'd be doing anyways."

  • Yes, this is the best job ever, but it's also a lifestyle.

  • People think that the dog is in a room at the airport when we go home at night, which is not true.

  • I mean, Diesel is with me all the time.

  • You need to take care of this animal 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  • But, if it's your passion, it doesn't feel like work.

  • And I don't see a better thing that I could be doing.

I would describe Diesel as a miniature version of me.
