Looking for security dog handlers?
Security dogs and their handlers are fantastic visual deterrents and work together as a team to maintain the security of your premises.
As qualified NASDU-trained dogs and handlers, all dogs undergo extensive training to ensure they can perform as expected and respond to threats, such as indicating to their handler if an intruder is detected.
What are Security Dog Handlers?
Dog handlers work with specially trained security dogs to complete all manner of tasks, much faster and with more accuracy than their human counterparts. These duties can include:
- Detecting and preventing crime
- Finding people
- Protecting property
- Discovering contraband, such as drugs or firearms
- Keeping crowds under control
- Catching criminals
- Travelling calmly from location to location
Benefits of Security Dog Handlers
There are many benefits of security dogs and their handlers, which include:
- Deterring potential criminals
The threat of a security dog can be much more effective than that of a security detail or officer, because of the added risk of injury if you are caught by the dog.
It also sends a clear message to would-be intruders or thieves about how seriously you take your security – which should in turn encourage them to look for other targets.
- Completing searches
Some security dogs are able to commence searches to detect anything from drugs to firearms.
Using dogs to check allows for contraband to be detected much faster, with higher instances of accuracy, and doesn’t rely on pat-downs versus using human security staff.
- Improved reaction times
With vastly improved senses of smell and hearing, security dogs can often tell there is an intruder inside or even on the premises much sooner than security staff.
They can also detect specific people, become familiar with their scent, and be trained not to react to them – which can stop false alarms and accidental injury.
