Professional guard dogs or search dogs within private security services are very special.
They draw everyone’s attention immediately. They are expected to display model behaviour in public, but at the same time be vigilant and ready in a flash to defend their two-legged workmate. No other service aid accomplishes what good service dogs can do: their effect is deterrent and at the same time sympathetic. They protect effectively—and de-escalate.
More than any neat staff outfit they are a key influencing factor of the public image of the Private Security. Investments in service dog teams are investments in a positive image of the private security sector.
