(WHAS11) -- A new report  is questioning whether millions of your tax dollars are being wasted on bomb sniffing dogs that cannot actually find bombs.

In a video a dog walks right past a woman who has an explosive training device in her backpack.

The Government Accountability Office report finds that the TSA does not know how good the dogs are at detection explosives in a dynamic environment like an airport.

The report finds more than 700 canine units were deployed without knowing their effectiveness.
