There are several measures business owners can take to ensure their commercial premises remains safe and free from the threat of vandalism and burglary.

Here at Umbrella Security Services, we offer a wide variety of services to give you complete peace of mind whether your site is optimised or vacant, including security dog patrols. In our latest post, we discuss the use of dog patrols in more detail, helping you to decipher if this could be an appropriate solution for your business.

What Can Security Dogs be Used For?

Whilst there are many instances where the use of security dogs can be beneficial, many people enlist the help of patrol dogs to explore large vacant sites where an individual security guard may be vulnerable, or to search for a variety of items including explosives, narcotics and contraband.

Are the Dogs Dangerous?

When investing in dog patrols to ensure the security of an empty site, you may be concerned about how safe the dog is to handle.

It is important to note that if you invest in security dog patrols, you should always opt for SIA licensed dog handlers and those NASDU certified or British Standard certified. With the backing of these certifications, you can be sure that all handlers are fully trained to handle the dogs patrolling the area.

Whilst security patrol dogs can look intimidating, the aggression they show to others is trained and will never be used upon the handler or anyone innocent in the area, without a signal from the handler.
