Why Have A Professionally Trained
Security Dog or Guard Dog?
An Investment In Canine Security Is An Integral Part Of A Holistic Security Strategy.
Uses Of A Trained Security K9 Team May Be:
- Protecting executives or others needing an additional layer of security
- Clearing an area of potential explosives or other contraband, including firearms
- Used merely as a psychological deterrent to crime, even as crowd control
- Sporting or other events where another level of defense will help to deter crime
- Respond to active shooter situations and neutralize the threat
- Legal deployments and successful engagements of a suspect
- Crime prevention at warehouses, construction sites, etc
Global challenges in today’s world are constantly changing and seemingly increasing. Utilization of security dogs represents an asset to security personnel which is non-lethal and very cost effective. Using his amazing nose and keen sense of hearing, the dog can sniff out contraband, locate suspects, and also be a psychological deterrent by their presence at the scene of potential conflict. If needed, the K9s speed and agility is helpful in pursuing fleeing suspects, without the use of deadly force. Today’s security needs are constantly changing. Keep up-to-date with a highly trained and maintained canine team!
