Canines (K-9s) possess attributes that no other form of security has. The heightened senses of hearing, smell and sight in low light conditions provide a degree of alertness unequal to that of humans. The K-9 hearing is much more acute with regard to distance, range and tone. This is often the first sense to alarm a K-9 that something is awry.
The same characteristics that a K-9 uses in the wild for self-preservation are well suited for security work. K-9s have prospered on all the continents except Antarctica. Their senses, speed, agility, ferocity, and intelligence have made them successful everywhere. K-9 Mercantile capitalizes on these traits to enhance the ability of the handlers to perform their duties when K-9 teams are called for.
