Types of Dog
Explosives search dogs
Specialising in the searching for explosives at  open-air functions and inside location. Also ability to search persons.
Drugs search dogs
This discipline is utilised where a dog has to search for substances that may be hidden on a person or premises.
SAFE 4 U Ltd recognise that in this situation the Handling of the dog is of paramount importance as the rights of the individual must not be breached.
To the same end, to avoid any 'fear factorÂ' the dogs used should be of the Pointer or Gun type, e.g. Labradors.
Security dogs / General purpose police dogs
High Profile Security dogs have proved to be the most successful deterrent available.
Due to the dog¹s acute senses of smell and hearing it is almost impossible for the  'would beÂ' intruder to pass undetected by the dog. This factor gives great confidence to the Handler in a remote and / or high-risk environment especially during the 'silent hours¹.
SAFE 4 U Ltd takes special care to ensure that all Security Dogs receive the required training to pick up and indicate the presence of an intruder and defend the Handler with or without words of command.
The General Purpose Police dog, as the name implies is an all-round dog trained in many disciplines, being bold but not necessarily aggressive.
