Hart K9 is a premium provider of fast response Explosive Detection Dog Teams (EDDTs). Our world-class, highly trained dogs confirm or rule out the presence of hazardous explosive materials and enable your usual activities to continue with minimal or no interruption.
Our dog teams provide a prompt and specialised response to bomb threats and other dangerous items that may present a threat to clients’ assets and lives. Unlike traditional guard dogs, K9 dogs are gentle, intelligent and non-threatening in nature.
Our handlers participate in a six-week handler course and all have a background in military or police service. The K9 teams are certified to U.S. Military working dog programme standards (Army regulations 190-12). All working dogs are specifically selected and tested for each contract in order to ensure the most suitable Explosive Detection Dogs (EDDs) for the security of our clients and their assets.
Our QA/QC programme ensures that the K9 teams continue to maintain the highest standards throughout the course of a contract. This includes monthly training reports, quarterly field assessments by a supervisor, after action/incident report documentation and 12-month re-certification. Training is conducted with the EDDs on a daily basis which is recorded and submitted monthly to management.

- Entry control points
