About us

International K9 Consulting Ltd holds SIA approved contractor status for the provision of Security Guarding Services.


International K9 Consulting is the home of strategic security dog provision.

We are the consulting partner and surveillance provider to industry on all security issues from discreet surveillance to overt threat response.

As our name suggests, dogs were our original specialisation and we continue to develop their use today. But because dogs, excellent though they are, can only be one piece of the complex security ‘jigsaw’, IK9 have fitted together all the other pieces that make up today’s modern, all encompassing security counter-measures and response service. IK9 meet the security needs of all; individual, workforce or installation.

IK9 can research, analyse and report on a current security position, then design and implement any required improvements.

If brought in at a building’s planning stage, we can draw up a complete and integrated security system.

For existing workplaces we can offer keyholding, mobile patrols and emergency response teams. Or the requirement may be for physical or electronic counter surveillance, conflict management or physical intervention, security driving skills or armed robbery avoidance. Our professionally trained, licensed handler’s together with our highly trained security dogs make an unbeatable combination to protect your assets and interests.

There are many benefits a skilled team can bring to a strategic security operation, such as:

  • The dog can use its heightened senses to scent, see or hear intruders or hidden persons
  • Displaying controlled aggression and standing its ground, the dog can protect both security personnel and premises at the same time
  • The threat of the animal enables suspects to be detained until the arrival of law enforcement

This offers an excellent deterrent to make your would-be attackers ‘shop’ elsewhere!
Our training standards are based on ‘best practice’ standards of UK Police canine training.

IK9 mobile patrols can make timed or random inspections of property, externally and/or internally 24/7, year round. Mobile patrol can also secure/unlock and set alarms for you at the start or the end of the working day.

Our units also offer an escort service, for instance; picking you up from your home, taking you to your appointments and returning you safely home at the conclusion of your business.

Equally, they will pick up and deliver valuable or sensitive materials.

Highly skilled security drivers dedicated to a quick response to any alarm call and trained to meet the challenge of any on-the-ground situations they may encounter.

IK9 have developed a tried and tested alarm response strategy:

  1. Control room receives call from monitoring station that an intruder alarm has been activated.
  2. Emergency response unit scrambled.
  3. Team assesses situation on site.
  4. If false alarm; relevant bodies notified to stand down – if break in; back up requested from Police, alarm engineers called out. Static security officer will remain on site until premises secured and alarm operative.
  5. Detailed alarm activation report compiled for client files.

Again, this service can work in conjunction with our key holding and mobile patrol services.
