Operating within UK industry guidelines and Government legislation we adhere to the Guard Dogs act 1975 and train to BS standards.

The deterrent value of a well trained security dog team should not be underestimated, with the dogs enhanced powers of scent and hearing; they can often detect hidden intruders from distance, giving the security dog handler time to implement Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) or Emergency (SOPS).

Exertus instructors are very conscious of the health and safety of our clients, and the dogs are all trained to the highest possible standards with regards to this. Safe to be around at rest, but while on patrol with their handlers they are fully alert to any potential threats, and will react to protect the client or handler vigorously if threatened.

A well trained security Dog team can often replace several guards or enhance existing security arrangements

Specialist Training

If you would like a dog trained or for Exertus to source a dog from its suppliers of specialist guard dog breeds, EGS can undertake training at 2 training wings, 1 at Cobham near Dartford and the other near Christchurch, Bournemouth. Both have tailored made facilities for Security dog training including the use of pyrotechnics, dilapidated buildings, woodland and areas for vehicle check point drills. The other option is to carry out training in the client’s country as long as the correct facilities are in place.

Before acceptance at residential courses, full vaccination records including kennel cough must be produced, and the current worming regime

Please be aware that specialist training will only be commenced after an in depth assessment of your dog. NOT all dogs are suitable for this training. Exertus produces Dogs that are balanced, of sound temperament, structurally sound and work in the “correct” drives required of them.
