The Benefits of Guard Dogs: Protecting Your Peace of Mind


When it comes to owning a business, security should be top of your list of priorities. Poor security can lead to vandalism, break-ins, theft or squatting, all of which can be inconvenient and costly for your company. 

Most businesses will have the standard alarm and CCTV set up, but if you own a business in a particularly valuable sector, you might want to up your game a little. This is where guard dogs come in. There are numerous benefits to guard dog security, here are a few…

Visible Deterrents

Let’s be frank, guard dogs look scary. They are a visible deterrent to any would-be criminals. Guard dogs have great hearing and smell, and they can detect a threat way before cameras or alarm systems. The sight of a guard dog on your property will put off most thieves, as they won’t be certain about what that dog is trained to do. The dog might just be trained to scare them off verbally, or it might be able to physically detain them until the authorities arrive. Either way, the uncertainty of the situation is a huge deterrent, which protects your business from crime. 

Thorough Training

If you opt for guard dog patrol for your business, the dog will come with a handler. Although you pay a premium for this service, both the dog and the handler are more thoroughly trained than your average security guard. In our company, for example, we proudly work with Armed Forces personnel, as they have experience dealing with a wide range of threatening situations. They know how to keep calm under pressure and how to think on the spot, which can be invaluable to you as a business owner.

Good Investment

Guard dog security can be a great investment in the long run. If your business suffers a break-in, you might have to replace missing tools/equipment, spend money on fixing windows/doors that were broken into, or you might even have to shut up shop for a while, which can result in a loss of earnings. A single break-in could cost you the same amount as guard dog security would for a whole year! Save yourself the stress and hassle, invest in good security!
