Our security dogs go through years of training. This includes protecting their handler and alerting them to different sounds and smells. When guarding your business based in location, our security dogs will potentially undertake roaming routes and patrol areas which often creates awareness of a canine being on hand, which can in turn, deter potential intruders or criminals.

Utilising security dogs in location is a highly effective deterrent to guard against intruders, keep crowds under control, or detain aggressive offenders. Security dogs are paired with a trained handler and together they form a formidable security presence. 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 in location who are able to work at a range of premises and events. This offers an effective visual deterrent, as many offenders are put off simply by the sight of a K9 security dog and their handler.
Ultimately, if your event/organisation in location requires security dogs 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 units in location. 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 in location and their handlers 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.
