If you’re looking for the very best in security dog services, you need DSS (Security Dog handling Services). Whether it’s security for a specific event, or premises that needs constant protection, we’ll use our specialist knowledge and insights to help prevent you becoming a victim of crime.

We provide first class services directly to both public and private companies, and we’re often called upon for our expertise to help bigger security firms who don’t have the specific dog handling experience that we have. We can guarantee results because we employ the highest trained guard and patrol dogs. All our staff are qualified to the latest standards (B.I.P.D.T and N.A.S.D.U, plus compliant with BS8517), and our elite teams always provide a professional and admirable service. We’re experts in what we do, so just tell us your security issues and we’ll advise the best options for you.

With an around the clock alarm response team, fully licensed professional dog handlers and dogs trained in obedience, guard safety, sleeve work and tracking, Lockdown can meet all your needs and help ensure the safety of your business. Our dogs cover all types of security assignments; a well trained security dog team can be the ultimate deterrent and cost effective, and can often replace several static guards, or complement your existing team.  As an equal opportunities employer DSS are able to provide staff of either male or female gender and of different ethnic and/or religious backgrounds. This has enabled us to provide the correct person for each contract.


Did you know that a security dog team can effectively replace up to 3 static security officers? Not only are they more of a deterrent, it’s cost effective too.

Dogs have an incredible sense of hearing and a powerful sense of smell. This enables them to detect disturbances from a long distance, and well before any person or high tech alarm system. Trained security patrol dogs are a valuable asset and ensure your security is not compromised.

Alarm systems have their place and are great at indicating a disturbance, but they cannot act upon it. Equally, camera systems record what is occurring, but this doesn’t help if criminals use a disguise. Even a monitored system can experience a delayed response if you’re at the mercy of the police who have limited resources – plus, the crime has already taken place.

We can help you prevent crime in the first place. Our trained and qualified security dog teams operate from high profile, marked vehicles which helps deter offenders – this alone reduces the risk of criminals targeting your property. However, should the worst happen, and you are targeted by criminals, our security dogs have the ability and motivation to protect both the handler and your property. Our dogs are highly trained, so they can apprehend the criminals in a controlled and professional manner much quicker and more effectively than a security officer.

Each dog lives with their handler which creates a strong bond and encourages their natural instinct and desire to protect. It also means that our dogs are well rounded, mentally stable and able to cope with a variety of situations. Unlike other companies we DO NOT use multi-handled dogs from a central kennel.

DSS Security Specialists can provide security dogs and handlers at short notice or on a contract basis.
