Specialist Dog Handlers
Highly trained and specialist Dog Handlers
Looking for the right deterrent and support service for your business?
Our fully trained and experienced dog handlers provide an extra deterrent and efficient security service.
Our specialist handlers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Employing our K9 security services will provide protection to your outdoor event, construction site, industrial estate, retail park or unoccupied premises.
Our dog handlers utilise their K9 partner’s enhanced senses to swiftly and accurately detect security threats, with handlers quickly being alerted to suspicious behaviour by their dogs, often much more effectively than through CCTV systems or lone security guards.
Loyal, attentive and perceptive, dogs are ideally equipped to respond to danger. When fully trained and working with professional dog handlers, the dogs become a formidable asset. Anecdotal evidence shows that in the majority of cases, the presence of K9 security will prevent and deter crime and disorder.

What We Do
We have specially trained search dogs that can detect illegal or suspicious items, such as illegal drugs, the carrying of knives, offensive weapons or explosives at your venue/event. Our dogs are highly trained, continuously responding to their handler’s commands; they’re able to recognise phrases such as ‘I have a knife’ and they will display controlled aggression upon instruction or cause.
Whether you need event security, a site deterrent, or intrusion detection, K9 security is effective and authoritative.
We have a proven track record, often working alongside the police, in detecting illegal and dangerous weapons and substances quickly and thus preventing more serious incidents. Our specialist dog handler service provides our clients with a proven and effective deter and detect alternative to the more ‘conventional’ security methods.
