What is Security Dog Services?

Dog Security is a service offered by a professional security organisation such as Taur Security and is where security dogs are specifically trained to assist police and other law-enforcement personnel to carry out security tasks.

The security dogs and their handlers undertake rigorous training to ensure they are safe to be around the public yet effective in carrying out their specific roles.

Security dogs are generally deployed in complex environments where security officers or members of the public may be at heightened risk or if there are large areas to patrol such as at airports, festivals and large corporate warehouses.

Benefits of Dog Security

Enhanced Deterrence:

The presence of trained security dogs can act as a strong deterrent to potential intruders or criminals. The sight of a well-trained dog patrolling an area can discourage unauthorised individuals from attempting to breach a secure location.

Heightened Sensory Abilities:

Dogs have highly developed senses of smell and hearing, which allow them to detect threats or unusual activities that might go unnoticed by human security personnel. This heightened sensory perception makes them valuable in detecting hidden contraband, explosives or potential intruders.

Rapid Response:

Trained security dogs and handlers can respond swiftly to emerging security situations. Their agility and speed enable them to quickly cover ground and apprehend suspects, providing a valuable rapid response capability.

Reduced Human Risk:

Using dogs in security operations can help minimise the risk to human security personnel. In situations where direct confrontation might be dangerous, dogs can be sent in to apprehend suspects or assess potential threats.


Security dogs can be trained for a wide range of tasks, including patrol, tracking, narcotic or explosive detection, crowd control and apprehension. This versatility allows them to adapt to different security scenarios and operational needs.


In some cases, utilizing a well-trained dog unit can be more cost-effective than employing a larger number of human security personnel. Dogs can cover large areas quickly and efficiently, reducing the need for a larger security workforce.

Building Positive Relationships:

In various community and public settings, the presence of friendly and well-behaved security dogs can help establish positive relationships between security personnel and the public. This can improve public perception and cooperation with security measures.

In summary, Dog Security can become an essential part of an organisations security plan.
