Guard Dog Provision
As with manned guarding, the presence of a guard dog is often enough to deter any unwanted behaviour. Our team of officers and their highly trained dogs are well equipped to de-escalate tensions, protect, prevent, and reduce the risk of damage, theft, or vandalism.
NASDU is a recognised body by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) to promote high standards of training by qualified NASDU trainers and care, health, safety, and welfare of the Security Dogs. Since 1996, NASDU aimed to outline and endorse nationally recognised standards for all trainers, dog handlers, and working dogs in Great Britain. Correct training will produce a healthy, disciplined animal, of good general temperament.
General Purpose Dogs
DOBS Security Services work under the guidance of BS 8517-1 – The Code of practice for the use of general-purpose security dogs. This includes the Guard Dogs Act 1975, The Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, Animal Welfare Act 2006, Welfare of Animals (Transport) Order 2006, Microchipping of Dogs Regulations 2014, The Town Police Clauses Act 1847, The Metropolitan Police Act 1839, the Animals Act 1971, and The Guard Dogs Act 1975.
Search dogs, or detection dogs, are used in a variety of scenarios to locate contraband or other substances. Our skilled dog handlers work closely with our dogs to pick up on and interpret subtle signs, while being trained to interact safely with the public.
