Security Dogs or K9-units are highly useful for any site requirements and offer a unique perspective when used for Security purposes, as humans, we perceive life predominantly through sight, whereas dogs use their sense of smell to locate and pickup.

Security dog duties
Whether it’s open spaces or patrolling a premises, a security guard dog’s senses are great at locking onto and locating potential criminal activities through smell and hearing.
The presence of a security dog can refrain a criminal from acting, especially when paired with a highly trained dog handler.
Their heightened sense of smell and hearing offer a new dimension to your security set up.
Security Dogs & Handlers - FAQS
Security dogs & handlers provide a highly effective deterrent. They can be used to guard against intruders, keep crowds under control, or detain aggressive offenders. Security dogs and their handlers form a formidable security presence together. It is estimated that security dogs are 5 times more effective than a lone security guard. At County UK we provide NASDU qualified K9 Security Dog Handler teams available who are able to work at a range of premises and events. This provides an effective visual deterrent, as many offenders are put off simply by the sight of a K9 security dog and their handler.
Ultimately, if you have an event or premises that requires security dog handlers, it will work out more cost-effective to hire the correct resources than just security guards alone. While the initial hourly cost of a dog handler is greater than just a security guard, security dogs help to deter criminals which in itself reduces the amount of work required. Think of the insurance excess, loss of contracts through deadlines and targets failing to be met, and the boosted staff and client morale of having the calming presence of security dogs. It is also worth bearing in mind that a security dog and their handler will arrive with their own specially designed transport, thus making them more mobile.
No, it will more likely have the opposite effect! We provide uniforms to suit the occasion, whether we are wearing black jumpsuits or business suits. Our services are based on being professional, not intimidating. Criminals will rethink their intent when faced with polite and professional dog handlers. And customers will feel reassured that they are in a secure venue with dogs and handlers on hand for their protection.
No, you and your staff can rest assured that this won’t happen. All of our security dogs and hanlders are professionally trained by our in-house training staff, who have proven experience in this type of work. Further, our dogs are all assessed and must meet our stringent character tests before we permit them to go through training or to any jobs. Only those dogs good enough will be passed as competent. Also, our dogs are always under the control of their handlers when they are on duty.
No, it is best practice for security dogs in location to be involved at the earliest possible opportunity because it works best as a deterrent. Criminals will be put off in the first place by the presence of security dogs in location, to stop things getting out of hand later down the line. Remember that in today’s world even our Police Officers are stretched and a fast response from them even if 999 is activated is not guaranteed, therefore it is essential to protect one’s assets, whether persons or property, from the outset.
