Experienced Dog Handling Security Services

At Region Security Guarding, our dog handling security guards commit wholly to their duties, working tirelessly to secure properties. With our security dog handling services, you can be assured that our expert team is securing your site with routine patrols. A security guard accompanied by K9 support is generally seen as more intimidating to potential criminals. This results in them often being scared off or deterred by an on-site security presence.

Additionally, with a security dog’s heightened senses, they can pick up on cues that something is wrong sooner than a security officer could. With this, intruders that do make it on-site are swiftly stopped with an immediate response from our security team. When providing our security dog handling services to businesses, the team will jump straight to their responsibilities with an initial survey of the site.

"We approached Region Security Guarding with an urgent need for security at a large site in Pineham, Northamptonshire. They provided us with a quotation within the hour and managed to resource a security guard for the following day. The security guard worked on the site for a two-month period and was punctual, reliable, and professional throughout. Any queries or requests that we had throughout this period, were actioned promptly by the Region Security manager. We would definitely recommend using Region Security, as they provided an excellent service for a reasonable price."

Incident reports can be provided and stored upon request, making keeping track of your site easier than ever. This ensures constant transparency when it comes to our security dog handling services.

When protecting your premises, our dog handling units are sent straight to your site. They will arrive in marked vehicles and deployed from there, beginning their routine patrols to check the perimeter of a property. The marked vans help to indicate that the premises is actively protected, which can be enough to scare off potential criminals targeting the property. Security dog handling units can effectively replace up to 3 security guards, given their enhanced senses.

Our team of reliable and experienced dog handling security guards have the knowledge and equipment to do their job to the highest standards.

How Does Security Dog Handling Help?

As crime rates continue to climb, so do the standards we deliver to you. With security dog handling services, you can effectively safeguard your business from criminal damages and security threats.

A dog’s senses are unrivalled when it comes to security work, with the ability to hear nearly 4 times further than the average human. Additionally, dogs can also pick up on sounds of higher frequencies, which means they have the unparalleled ability to alert security guards to issues that may not be fully apparent yet. And, with their fast running speeds, security dogs have no difficulty in catching up to a suspect attempting to flee.

At Region Security Guarding, our security dog handling team can provide reliable and prompt security responses for your site. With SIA-licenced guards that work nationwide, our staff will always be prepared to back you up whenever you require.

More About Our Services

What Does A Security Dog Handler Do?

On average, security dog handlers will perform regular patrols of the site they are working on. By performing these patrols, they are making themselves aware as a visual, on-site presence. It also allows them to pick up on any signs of disturbances. So, in the event of criminal trespassing or other crimes, the security dog can alert the handler to the scene, providing fast response times to incidents.

Alternatively, given their heightened sense of smell, security dogs are commonly used for search and detection. This can include searching for missing persons or detecting illegal contraband – such as firearms, explosives or drugs.

Do I Need Security Dog Handling Services?

With crime rates rising, it’s becoming more difficult to protect your business on top of aiming to grow and expand it. It can be tiring trying to balance between duties, and tiring when so much is on your plate at once. The best way to give yourself peace of mind is to invest in personalised security measures for your company. With security no longer bearing a heavy weight on your mind, you are free to focus your efforts and attention elsewhere in your business.

What Is The Difference Between A Guard Dog And A Protection Dog?

Generally, security dogs are trained to be relatively independent. They are intended to be dominant and decisive, which allows them to intimidate and protect when their duties require it. Additionally, the extensive training that they go through heightens their sense of smell, immediately differentiating them from a protection dog. Lastly, not all dogs can be guard dogs. One of the main differences that sets security and protection dogs apart, is their breed. Generally, guard dogs are German Shepherds, Rottweilers or Dobermans.

On the other side of the coin, protection dogs are trained to safely socialise with families and children. Immediately setting them apart from their guard counterpart. They also won’t receive the same kind of training that security dogs do, given their difference in purpose. Whilst security dogs need to be able to use their sense of smell to search or detect, protection dogs merely need to protect. Therefore, they don’t receive thorough training to enhance their sense of smell. And finally, the role of protection dogs is not limited to a specific breed. They can be small or large since they don’t need to attack animals or people – just defend.

What Dog Breeds Make The Best Guard Dogs?

Generally, there tend to be four main breeds of dog that make the best guard dogs. This is due to their temperament, loyalty, physical capabilities and impressive senses. When trained well, these breeds can become forces to be reckoned with. They are the:

  • Doberman
  • German Shepherd
  • Rottweiler
  • Giant Schnauzers

Whilst they certainly aren’t the only breeds of dogs to be used for security purposes, they are among the most common and reliable breeds.
