You can trust us to take care of your business

When it comes to deterrence and detection, you cannot match the skill and capability of our Canine Support Section.


Intelligent canine security

Our canine companions add a new dimension to how we protect your business, providing critical operational support for a range of assignments including asset protection, specialist search (both for narcotics and explosives), and crowd control.

Being able to identify a subject, whether a person or a substance, quickly and effectively, allows your officers to proactively respond to the threat. This may involve apprehending and detaining an intruder, or searching a person, bag or vehicle. In either situation, our canine capability allows your officers to deter, detect and intercept the threat before it affects you or your business.

Code 9 Security offers motivated, loyal and committed security dogs and handlers delivering a superior level of service, with confidence and unmatched capability.


About your dog handler

Dog handlers are licensed by the Security Industry Authority (SIA), and certified by the British Institute Professional Dog Trainers (BIPDT) or the National Association of Security Dog Units (NASDU). We also regularly reassess dog and handler teams at a Code 9 Security training facility on the outskirts of Winchester.

Each handler is also subject to thorough, and certificated, screening and vetting in accordance with British Standards (BS 7858), giving you peace of mind that your security personnel are of good integrity and character.

To make sure you get the most out of your service, we make a significant investment into our officers' (and their canine companions') continuing training and professional development - providing skill expansion in important areas that are often overlooked by our peers. 


Animal welfare is an important consideration for Code 9 Security, particularly with regards to the safety, comfort and welfare of our guard dogs and specialist search dogs. 


Looking after our canine companions

Animal welfare is a really important consideration for our business. This is why we take a number of positive steps to safeguard the health, safety, welfare and comfort of our dogs working alongside our specialist handlers.

Our commitment goes beyond that of our frontline duties. Our dog handlers are required to commit to the highest standards of welfare and care, which are routinely inspected by the company.


Playtime is important

As you know, dogs love nothing more than time to play, explore and socialise. This is why we make sure that our dogs have a healthy balance of work and play.

Our handlers are careful not to overwork their dogs or to keep them on active assignments for prolonged periods, minimising the impact of fatigue, whilst making sure they are always at their best. 

Excellent diet and veterinary care

Everyone loves great food and healthcare, and our dogs deserve the same. We make sure that all of our dogs have an excellent diet, with many of them being fed on an ethically supplied raw diet.

To make sure our dogs are always in the very best health, we ensure that all of our dogs enjoy the very best in veterinary care. including their routine vaccinations, check ups or responsive treatment.

On the move: specially adapted patrol vehicles

To ensure the comfort and safety of our dogs whilst at work, our dog handlers use specially adapted patrol vehicles. These adaptations allow us to maintain safe and comfortable temperatures in the dog compartments, allowing for airflow throughout the caged areas whilst also providing protection in the event of an accident or impact. 

When out on patrol, our dog handlers make sure to let their canine companions out to stretch their legs, explore and enjoy their surroundings, and enjoy some fuss. This is really important and keeps our dogs motivated so that when you call upon us to respond to a situation, both handler and dog are motivated and ready to go.
