When it comes to protecting your house, business, or possessions, you can choose from a wide variety of modern choices. It's easy to feel overwhelmed by all the technological advancements being made in the security industry, but what about the more tried-and-true methods?
In terms of safety, dogs have long been and will continue to be an established solution. Aside from the obvious health and happiness benefits, they can also serve as a considerably more personable alternative to traditional security alarms and alerts.

Why might you need the help of a dog patrol security company Kent? The answer is simple; dogs make the ideal security system. Why is this?
To begin with, dogs can cover large areas quickly, meaning that even on big building sites or properties with lots of land, you can stay safe and secure. An inquisitive dog will investigate any unexpected people, sounds, or movements by sniffing them out and potentially barking at them. If you get the correct breed, they'll be trustworthy and intelligent enough to make good decisions under pressure.
Don’t forget that dogs can also react and move very quickly; trespassers will more easily be caught or caused away. Dogs pose a physical threat due to their intimidating combination of growls, strong jaws, and sharp claws, even if their bark is worse than their bite. Intruders will likely assume the worst about a guard dog and believe it will be prepared to bite or attack if provoked.
There's no denying that dogs are powerful deterrents against wrongdoers. Trained guard canines not only look and sound menacing, but they are also able to outrun the vast majority of humans.
When it comes to building site security, what is it about dogs that makes the difference? To begin with, alarms and fences won’t stop the determined trespasser, and that could lead to expensive theft, damage, or even dangerous situations. With a dog to guard the site, it is unlikely anyone will be willing to trespass.
As a result, you can protect all of your important, expensive equipment and not have to delay your work – which also costs money – or claim on your insurance, which will put your premiums up in the future.
An added benefit is that by preventing trespassers and thieves by using building site patrol dogs Kent, you can ensure your health and safety protocols aren’t breached, which is a hugely important consideration when running a building site.

Our security dog and handler will arrive in marked vehicles and post suitable warning signs to alert anyone passing by that they are on your property.
