Many travellers arrive at the border with firearms, weapons or other devices, not knowing that they are restricted or prohibited in Canada.

My dog Echo is trained to detect them. Make sure to always declare these items when you arrive in Canada, offenders may face criminal charges or penalties.

Be aware and declare.
