K9 - Dog Security

Our security dog, also known as K-9 or K9 (a homophone of canine), is a dog specifically trained to assist members of law enforcement. Dogs have been used in law enforcement since the Middle Ages.

At G3 Security, as is the case with our protection dogs, their mere presence of our protection dogs can discourage threatening behaviour, such as criminal and terrorist acts.

We specialise in providing professional dog security services to ensure public safety and customer satisfaction to a broad range of clients and sectors.

Why is k9 security important?

When dealing with security incidents involving multiple offenders, the presence of a security dog reduces the risk to security guards. The superior senses of security dogs can be used to detect distress, identify perpetrators, and reinforce instructions given by professional security guards.

General Purpose Security Patrol Dogs

Security patrol dogs are responsible for guarding premises and large open spaces to secure perimeters against intruders. As part of their job, they are also trained to protect their handler, barking at intruders that they locate and apprehending them.

Our SIA licensed guards are fully trained to NASDU standards and have an accredited serviced vehicle and trained security dogs too. At G3 Security we continuously train our dog handlers to the latest standards to ensure our service maintains its high standards. We research new ways we can improve our services through meetings with the correct professionals and customer feedback.

Our dog handlers have the following attributes.
  • Experience of caring for dogs and have an affinity with them.
  • Are physically fit and strong.
  • Are patient and self-confident.
  • They can work a dog efficiently with minimum supervision.
  • They are responsible, alert and observant.

Our clients mainly choose to utilise our dog security services in situations where a large area of land needs to be patrolled and the full perimeter of the site needs to be checked. These areas can include.

Unoccupied land: Where intruders may have taken occupancy

High-crime areas: Where the added threat of a security dog is required

Large sites: Where the full perimeter needs to be covered

Our dog security units provide a visual deterrent for your site and tackle the issues surrounding proactively protecting sites from damage, vandalism, or burglary. The security dog plays a big part of alerting his/her handler to an intruder, who in return completes the necessary procedures to deal with the intruder. Our guard will also maintain rigorous access control for your site to ensure no unauthorised people will access your site. All access must be pre-authorised.

Dog security resolves financial and operational issues of instructing a team of security guards to patrol your site. A dog handler and dog can provide an active solution to your issues by patrolling the area by foot and keeping alert for irregularities in the area and security concerns.

To compliment the dog security, G3 Security recommend clients also use our guard patrol monitoring software to easily track our dogs and dog handlers’ movements. Our 24-hour control room require the dog handler to send the office a text message when they begin and end their shift. The guard patrol software then accurately and effectively solves the issue of queries regarding the attendance of remote Staff through NFC technology.

Features include:
  • Shows proof of attendance at the site (Sign in and sign out logins)
  • Shows evidence of regular patrols through NFC (Near Field Communication) tags installed around the site (small circular stickers which can be applied discreetly to ‘hot spots’ or high-risk areas that you want checked on each patrol)
  • Sends incident reports instantly
  • Takes and sends photographic evidence
  • Allows the control room to check that the guards hourly patrol and check points have been completed through an online portal
  • Raises an automatic alarm in the control room for missed patrols and lone worker protection
  • Sends messages without a signal
  • Resolves lone worker issues

The two services combined sends a forceful message to criminals and trespassers that your site can not be accessed or tampered with without being caught by the dog, dog handler or the police.
