Security Dog Training

“Dog who provides a threat as well as an alarm…. he must have courage to stand his ground staunchly against anyone who tries to bluff his way past him”

Koehler, 1967

Developing Your Passion

Norwich Security Dog Training

Over the years we have heard many scary stories from people we have refused to train for this type of work.

Including: drug dealers, dog dealers, persons with absolutely no experience of dogs (intent on weaponizing their animals ), right through to unsuspecting individuals who have been wrongly advised by so called ‘guard dog trainers’, that they could allow ‘attack trained’ dogs to run around uninhabited commercial premises – juxtaposed alongside other persons who had been misled with similar sales pitches from dealers selling Dogue de Bordeauxs, Cane Corsos, various Shepherd dogs that have no understanding of the laws governing the use of security dogs and the risks involved (check out our blog page Personal Protection Dogs) .

Training Offered

Caveat – ‘We will not train just anyone to have a Security Dog’.

Training places huge responsibilities on the owner, depending upon the level of training required, and you need a dog of the right calibre.

Our credentials speak for themselves, as unlike so many ‘security dog trainers / suppliers’, our head trainer is qualified to the very highest level in Security Management:

Countless years managing security and safety risks within corporate, commercial, retail, public and community sectors (including the employment of Security Dogs).

What's Required?

Dog undertaking training must have rock steady temperaments and nerves, and be under the absolute control of its handler at all times. In essence it must be possible to ‘switch the dog off and on’. Training for this level takes time, effort and you need a dog with the right attributes for the work. Similarly the handler must have integrity and be an upstanding member of society.

‘Care & Attention Is A Must For this Type of Training’

Get In Touch

Having weighed up all the pros and cons, the risks and responsibilities – then should you require a dog for security or personal protection, then please contact us.

Individuals and security officers working in high-risk environments may require levels beyond that of the ‘threat dog’ (one that barks / snarls on command) and may require a dog to become physically protective, should the psychological threat be ignored by criminals with serious intent.
