K9 Explosive Detection


How is Securiguard leading the industry in explosive detection?

Securiguard is recognized as one of the only companies in the security industry today that currently offers highly trained, explosive detection dog services for wide-ranging applications. Whether our clients are based on land, at sea or in the air, many are now using Securiguard explosive detection dog services to ensure added safety and peace of mind in their respective businesses. We know that the demand for explosive detection services has grown exponentially in the past decade, and at Securiguard we are keeping pace by continually expanding our K9 Unit to meet the needs of both present and future clients.

What sets Securiguard explosive detection dogs apart from others?

Our dogs are trained and socialized in the very same environments they later work in. This real-world training ensures that our detection dogs will perform their duties flawlessly when deployed in crowds, around heavy machinery, in confined spaces, on sea-going vessels, and anywhere else our clients need them.

Explosive detection dog teams are the most effective and cost efficient tool available today for the detection of explosives. Our dogs can easily be deployed in vulnerable areas where, for example, large and dense items are unable to be scanned by traditional X-Ray machines. Through environmental conditioning, the dogs are trained to methodically search a variety of areas and articles to detect the trace presence of explosive material. These areas include but are not limited to:

  • K9-Detection-VertAir cargo
  • Buildings
  • Warehouses
  • Vehicles
  • Luggage
  • Aircraft
  • Airports
  • Packages
  • Cruise ships
