About two-dozen bomb-sniffing dogs will join Newark Airport's security team ahead of the Super Bowl.

The game is bringing tens of thousands of extra travelers into the region and security has been a chief concern.

The TSA says the dogs get 12 weeks of training at a cost of about $200,000, allowing them to sniff out different types of explosives.

The dogs are usually labradors or lab mixes.

LaGuardia and JFK airports are not bringing in any extra dogs for the game.
