Canine Security

From our operations centre in Kenya, our canine business manages more than 900 staff members and more than 800 dogs in Africa. Unlike many security companies in Africa who can provide canine units, we own all of our dogs and employ all of our handlers. This allows us to ensure the quality of our dogs, develop the best working relationship between our dogs and their handlers, and provide cost effective solutions to clients in the residential, commercial, agricultural, industrial and NGO/diplomatic sectors. Our canine operations are held to the highest international operational standards.

Our canine protection and detection services complement our other security products, such as manned guarding and response services.

We are the only company in Africa that runs a canine facility certified by the National Association of Security Dog Users – UK (NASDU).

Protection Dogs


We have several breeds of dogs that are trained in intruder detection, searching, patrolling and handler protection. The working abilities of all our dogs are constantly assessed, and all of our dogs and handlers are trained and certified in accordance with the standards set out by the National Association of Security Dog Users (NASDU).

Detection Dogs


At GardaWorld, we have narcotic and explosive detection dogs trained to detect explosive material on people and in vehicles, compounds, buildings and luggage. Dogs are trained to detect and indicate the presence of explosive material through body language, which the handler reads and begins necessary evacuation procedures.

These search dogs, both passive and proactive, are ideal for detection at airports, ports, stadiums, arenas, shopping centres, nightclubs and any locations where narcotics or explosives are a concern.

We have well trained dogs from many breeds for both narcotic and explosive detection.
