As the name implies, the visual deterrent dog should be seen to
be present on duty and impart a psychological threat. Biting is
not a prerequisite but the courage to stand its ground and show
aggression if threatened is essential.
The Guard/Security dog generally protects the more sensitive areas
and should be capable of detaining an intruder. The dog should be
able to detect the insurgence of would-be intruders by sight, scent
or sound and be able to locate hidden or injured suspects, items
or artefacts. The dog should demonstrate controlled aggression and
like the visual deterrent dog, is mainly used in a protective role.
The Police dog is the complete security protection dog. It should
be capable of affecting an arrest by biting or aggressive stand-off,
guard a prisoner or suspect, track, carry out a search for lost
evidence or property, negotiate an obstacle course and demonstrate
a good standard of control.
