Sight & Sound Security - Dog Services

Dog Services

Dog Services

Organisations today face a huge number of significant security concerns, ranging from terrorist attacks and theft, to illegal intrusions and vandalism.

Security dog patrols offer many advantages. A dog’s sense of smell is up to one million times better than man’s, and its agility, strength and hearing are highly proficient.

When all these qualities are harnessed efficiently, and reinforced by high standards of dog training, competence and management procedures, they provide one of the most effective forms of security within the industry.

We supply excellent dog patrol teams to guard sites and buildings. Our experienced teams have the confidence and expertise to deal with any situation that may arise on patrol, and can search and cover large areas and detect possible intruders.

In addition, Sight & Sound Security also provide dog teams that specialise in the detection of firearms, explosives and drugs. These teams can include proactive search dogs, which are able to work in all types of environments, to passive search dogs, capable of searching for items hidden on people.
