Home » Security Dog Training

Security dog training is made to prepare canines and their handlers for a range of security scenarios. Security dog training has the following advantages:

  1. Early detection: Security dogs are trained to detect and alert their handlers to potential threats early on. This early detection can help prevent situations from escalating and can provide valuable time for security personnel to respond appropriately.

  2. Deterrent: Security dogs can serve as a deterrent to possible trespassers or assailants. By doing this, security lapses may be avoided before they happen.

  3. Efficient search capabilities: security dogs are taught to efficiently seek for and find individuals or objects. This can be especially helpful while looking for explosives or illegal substances, for example.

  4. Greater adaptability: Security canines are flexible and may be deployed in a variety of locations, including airports, ports, hospitals, and schools. They can be instructed to operate in a variety of settings and to change their behaviour under various circumstances.

  5. Increased safety: With proper training, a security dog can help increase the safety and security of a facility, event, or area. The dog's heightened senses and training can alert handlers to potential threats, giving them the opportunity to take appropriate action.

Police Dog Style Training

Having been a police dog handler in Greater Manchester for 17 years, Mike is ideally placed to offer police dog-style training.

Police dogs are required to be proficient in the following: Heelwork- always being under control on and off lead in both formal and informal working environments Property searching- being able to locate hidden articles within a given search area Agility- being able to jump a seven-foot-long jump, jump a three-foot hurdle, and scale a six-foot scrambling frame. Searching for hidden persons- finding concealed people to simulate a practical police dog search. Combined with these exercises are the legal implications of owning a dog trained to these standards and their lawful use.

The legal aspects of security/protection and police dog training are very important. Most companies employing non-police officers as trainers cannot give a thorough grounding in the correct use of these dogs. Misuse can result in imprisonment.

It is, therefore, of the utmost importance that you get the correct instruction and guidance regarding the law and the proper training to ensure that you and your dog are not vulnerable.
