According to a study, looking at cute animal pictures can help reduce stress. I never thought that the CBSA Instagram feed would be the first place to go, but here we are.

Seriously! Half of their posts are about their detector dogs helping seize items that people tried to smuggle into Canada.

Our Detector Dog Team assisted our officers in finding a pistol, hidden in a camper, at North Portal last week. Way to go, Chase! #NationalDogDay #DogsWithJobs #DetectorDog #K9OnTheFrontline #K9 #Dog #DogsOfInstagram #Doggo #GoodBoy #K9Supermodel #WorkingDogs

Little Kelsey here helped discover some undeclared meat.

There is no fooling detector dog Kelsey’s keen nose! She had no problem sniffing out 9kg of undeclared sausage in a passenger's luggage! #dogswithjobs #detectordog #k9onthefrontline #k9 #dog #dogsifinstagram #doggo #goodboy #k9supermodel

Here’s Keo helping to detect a handgun that someone tried to sneak into the country.

On Aug. 20, with the help of Detector Dog Keo, officers at the Woodstock border crossing discovered a handgun wrapped in a towel. The traveller was arrested and paid a $1000 penalty. #LeaveYourGunsAtHome #dogswithjobs #detectordog #k9onthefrontline #k9 #dog #dogsofinstagram #doggo #goodboy #k9supermodel

They even take the time to acknowledge their dogs’ birthdays!

Happy belated birthday to Detector Dog extraordinaire Bones! #DetectorDog #CanBorder #K9Supermodel #DogsWithJobs #dogsofinstagram #goodboy

There you have it. Although you would think that a CBSA social media feed would be about nothing but enforcement and travel advisories, it’s also an excellent source of cute animals.
