RFA Security Dog Patrol Service

Animal Welfare is of Paramount Importance

The welfare of all our security dogs is a high priority. All our handlers transport their own dogs in vehicles that are sourced specifically for the optimum well-being of the dogs and for safe and secure travel. All vehicles are fitted with air conditioning, GPS tracker and a separate compartment for the dogs.

Contract Management

Our Management and Supervisory Team are all experienced handlers and maintain frequent visits to site making sure both handler and dog are safe and working to the site-specific assignment

RFA Security Services employ our own in house guard dog security handlers. All handlers are trained to BS:8517-1 standard, SIA licensed and vetted to BS:7858.

Buyers Guide

British Standard Compliance

Make sure the guard dog security company is British Standard compliant. Ask to see their training certificates.

SIA Licence and Vetting

Although dog handlers do not require an SIA licence, we think it is best practice to have SIA Licensed handlers, vetted and employed directly. Many security companies claim they have dog handlers but use individuals on a self-employed basis.

Animal welfare

Check where the dogs are kennelled and ask to visit the dog section, ask to see the some of the dog's files as these should provide up to date information on visits to the vet and inoculations etc. Question how the dogs are transported and look at the vehicles.

Continuation Training

Inspect training records for both the guard dog security teams, ask when and where continuation training is provided and who assess the teams. Reputable security dog providers are proud of their dogs and section and will be more than happy to show you information and introduce you to their trainers and assessors.
