24/7 Security Services want to assure our customers that we have the finest and best-trained dogs and handlers. Should the worst happen, and criminals target you, our security dogs have the ability and motivation to protect both the handler and your property. Our dogs are highly trained so that they can apprehend the criminals in a controlled and professional manner much quicker and more effectively than a security officer.
Our vision for the K9 unit is to differentiate ourselves from our competitors in the market by investing in skilled and certified dog handlers. Calvin Christian, a qualified certified SASSETA Dog Handler, Assessor and Trainer, and K9 Subject Head Specialist.

He follows our mandate that goes above and beyond our security protection plan as he oversees to the wellbeing of our canines.

24/7 Security Services has a good and knowledgeable understanding that Dogs have an incredible sense of hearing and a powerful sense of smell. This enables them to detect disturbances from a long distance, and well before any person or high-tech alarm system. Therefore, it is our moral obligation and privilege to adhere to all our K9 Dog Unit needs.
Our dogs are currently kept at our Head office in Wynberg, where they are monitored 24/7 (in special cases certain dogs are kept on site where they cannot be deployed from our offices). We acquire our dogs from Genesis K9 Group – the trainers of this unit jointly have over 80 years’ experience in training and handling of dogs (For more info visit their website: www.gk9group.com). We do not rent out dogs to any other security providers, our dogs are solely utilized by 24/7 Security Services.
