Wynn Las Vegas Goes To The Dogs

Wynn Las Vegas went all the way to Europe to hire eight specially trained members of the $2.7 billion Strip hotel-casino's security detail.

But they don't require much in the way of salary.

Two Labrador retrievers and six German shepherds make up the key components of the resort's canine patrol.

The dogs, who came to Las Vegas highly educated in bomb-detection techniques, work with their handlers to find dangerous materials, explosives and other substances that might be brought illegally into the resort.

The idea of having a bomb-detecting dog team on property isn't new to the Strip. MGM Mirage and the Stratosphere both have canine units working at their properties.

The difference, said Wynn Las Vegas Vice President of Security Jerry Keller, is the overall size and scope of the canine detail.



Comments & Discussion:

Jerry Keller couldn't tell the truth when he was the sheriff of Vegas. Now that he works for Wynn and their massive P.R. Hype-spinning machine, I would highly doubt that they have anything more significant than what MGM and Bellagio have. Now saying that the Wynn Resort itself is a dog would have been a much better and truer story.
