Alpha K9 Security dogs have been protecting client interests and holdings for more than a decade. Security dogs are the back-bone of our K9 Unit and are used in many assignments from handler protection, to guarding critical infrastructure and providing close personal protection. However, the real story behind this popular profile is the efficiency a dog team provides when it comes to proactive patrols of large areas or infrastructure. A patrol dog can search a very large area in a fraction of the time a person can, and with complete assurance that safety measures have been accounted for.
Security guard dogs are extremely effective as a visual psychological deterrent or as an additional detection resource, aiding security guards to find an intruder.
Security guard dogs can be used for all sorts of scenarios, whether they are with a static guard on site at all times, through to looking for an active intruder/trespasser or searching for prohibited substances at an event. Security dogs have a greater sense of smell and hearing than a human, which is leading many of our clients to opt for their services.
Alpha K9 Security dogs are also highly effective in scenarios where a lone security guard or small unit of security guards is faced with a situation where they would be outnumbered or potentially in danger. They are also a more cost-effective way of having a further deterrent on site.
Our K9 Team can confidently patrol areas that are considered unsafe for a security officer.
A patrol dog is a significant visual deterrent for offenders in crime-mode.
The public is used to seeing Alpha K9 Security dogs patrolling areas where public safety is a priority, such as CBD areas, parking lots, office buildings, waterfront areas, construction sites and more. Alpha K9 Security dogs are very comfortable working closely in and around members of the public and they are highly socialized to all environments. The dogs regularly work around cars, crowds, heavy machinery, noise, other dogs and children.
Our dogs are registered and qualified under strict training and assessment criteria. In addition to this, each Security K9 team undertakes a weekly training regime for the development of higher levels of security dog handling ability as well as ongoing assessment and maintenance. This approach guarantees the right results at the front line for our clients
