Our dog handlers are patient and confident in their roles. They are comfortable working on their own or as part of a larger team. They are able to judge a situation accurately and react instantly, helping to prevent and detect crime protect property and prevent/diffuse crowd disorder, depending on the work required. We use some dogs and handlers that are dual trained to do a wide variety of tasks and some that are trained to specific individual tasks.
Some events may find the thought of security dogs daunting but we would like to reassure that the our dog teams are rarely required front of house or in the public eye and unless requested we only normally provide them for events outside of open hours and or on the site build or break down stages.
