Security dogs


Of course, armed forces and police services do not have a monopoly on the use of dogs. Private security firms also use dogs to guard property (warehouses, parking facilities, shopping centres, vehicles) and keep order at big events (sporting events, concerts, shows).

Here, dogs are used for general crowd control or to guard a particular person. The main qualities demanded are vigilance and obedience. The dog must be detached and must not display any overt aggression unless it is prompted to act by its handler, for example in the event of trouble or attempted escape. It should be ready to defend its handler in the face of unprovoked aggression, but it is not an attack dog.
