Besides, give bystanders a smile, these dogs have a serious role in security and undergo extensive training in order to be a security dog.Security Solutions Cape Town
Not all dogs are created equal in the security world. Some breeds are more desirable for becoming k-9 trained than others. German Shepherds are top picks and if you’ve ever seen a security dog, most likely it was this breed. Other popular breeds are Blood Hounds, Boxers, Rottweilers and Labrador Retrievers.
K-9s are police dogs that are a play on the word “canine” (which means dog). K-9 security dogs can be used in the public or private sector and assist guards with a variety of functions. For example, k-9s can assist with drug-sniffing or bomb-sniffing. Criminals know as soon as a k-9 arrives that they will be caught since their noses are specially trained to sniff out even the slightest trace of illegal substances like drugs or explosives. These types of k-9s can assist security guards who work in apartment complexes.
K-9s can also assist with search and rescue efforts. If someone goes missing, a trained security dog can smell a piece of clothing from that person and is then able to trace their scent if it is detected during a missing person search.
The two scenarios above show how k-9s can help with crimes, but they are also great for prevention efforts. Consider using a k-9 security dog for executive protection, or in places like shopping malls, construction sites, or car dealerships. As mentioned above, these dogs are a menacing presence for criminals so they can keep you safe and secure.
