Dog Unit Patrols.
All of our Handlers are SIA licensed and have all relevant insurances. Our handlers use their own ohs which are kennelled at home with them. They undertake regular training with their dogs to ensure their dogs are kept alert and up-to-date in this field. Our handlers use vehicles that are clearly identified as being Dog Units and have the necessary cages for their dogs which ensures safety for both the dog and the members of the public All of our handlers wear a uniform that indicates them as being Dog Security Handlers.
We know from experience that a K9 unit consisting of a security officer and trained patrol dog is more effective than the combination of security cameras, burglar alarms.
Security Officers and dogs make a perfect partnership – protecting your property and each other.
Our security officers are experienced dog handlers and are trained to deal with high-risk situations.
Our officers have been approved by the Security Industry Authority and they all hold valid SIA licenses.
Shield Force Security Ltd patrol dogs and handler teams prove a useful asset in more vulnerable or higher risk situations. As well as providing excellent visual deterrents, our dogs are trained to indicate to the handler the presence of would-be intruders.
Our dogs are able to pick up on intruders or hidden persons by scent, sight, or sound. They will protect their handler by standing their ground and showing controlled aggression when confronted with threatening behavior and are able to detain a suspect until the authorities arrive.
Our dog units are put through the British Institute courses and have regular training to make sure we provide the most up to date techniques in dog patrol security.
