Why choose dog handlers to protect your property?  

Protection dogs use their sensory advantages to detect the presence of intruders. They have a sense of smell that is 100,000 times better than that of a human and can hear four times better over a wider range of frequencies than the human ear can detect.

For night time guarding, their night vision is also better than that of a security guard. When combined with a professional dog handler, these unique qualities make them the ideal choice to keep your business secure from threats.
