Dog Units

As professional providers of security dogs (AKA K9), highly trained security guards and a comprehensive range of property security services, we can ensure that your site or premises is protected as thoroughly as possible.  RK9 security services deliver the ultimate in site security when vulnerability is not an option.

Security dogs add a new dimension to your security practices, offering a much more visible element to your security detail. Security dogs effectively complement the skills of security officers, naturally offering higher levels of threat detection and, therefore, faster response. All our dog handlers are NASDU approved. NASDU is recognised within the security industry by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) *, British Standards Institute (BSI), Skills for Security, BSIA, IPSA together with the Home Office, NPCC, DATR, as well as many Animal Welfare Groups and local Authority Dog Wardens. NASDU keeps members up to date with the industry and related topics together with British Standards, Codes of Practice and training materials.

Our dog units can check the exterior perimeter of a property and openings like doors and windows, but they can include a check of the interior. Mobile units can respond very quickly to anticipated risk, with vehicles available to react fast when time is of the essence. Dogs can pick up on additional threats that cannot be detected by human senses, increasing the effectiveness of the patrol.

Every dog unit is trained and able to manage alarm responses, keyholding services, and property lock and unlock services, making them as versatile and flexible as they are effective.

All our staff are backed up by:

  • A 24hr fully staffed control room support
  • A hands-on management team
  • 24/7 mobile duty supervisory team
  • All staff are fully vetted and DBS Clear

A Bespoke Solution for Your Business

We understand that each site will have bespoke requirements, and our security contracts are tailor-made to reflect this. This is will all be dependent on the size of the site, the location of your business and any associated risk.

At RK9 our focus is on customer satisfaction. We work hard to deploy the right resources to suit your specific requirements. We never subcontract our staff, recruiting only the best individuals to represent us and meet our exceptionally high standards. All site instructions and training is given by RK9 management to the criteria set by the Security Industry Authority (SIA).
