Metroguard Security & Risk Management is proud to introduce our Canine Division for K9 detection services. Our dogs train daily, so as to always be prepared for the call, and they specialize in Explosive detection, bed bug detection efforts and illegal substance detection.
WHY USE CANINE DETECTION SERVICES?
Our canines can serve as a discreet security team so that you know your home, business, religious organization, or educational facility is safe. Dogs have noses that are thousands of times more sensitive than humans. They can detect just about anything they are trained for with far more accuracy and efficiency than humans. With the current rise is substance abuse, mental health, and crime, there has never been a more crucial time in America to protect your loved ones or associates.
Our canines are trained and socialized, which enhances their ability to operate in high pedestrian traffic venues such as large event gatherings. However, they also perform well in a smaller place such as a home or office. Other outside distractions such as food, noise, other animals, and people, do not affect their performance. Our head canine trainer has a “Master Trainer” certification in dog obedience, aggression, service, and detection.
OUR K9 DETECTION SERVICES
Drugs & Narcotics Detection K9
Bed Bugs Detection:
Adult bed bugs are wingless insects that range from 5-6mm in length and feed solely on the blood of animals. These small, brownish-red insects, can be either flat or bulbous, depending on the timing of their last meal. Cimex lectularius Linnaeus is the scientific name of bed bugs.
Female bed bugs can lay eggs within a few days of their last meal, so an infestation can happen very quickly. Common requests for bed bug inspections come from homes, businesses, hospitals, nursing homes, and hotels.
Call us to get peace of mind about bed bugs in your establishment.

ARE DOG CANINE DETECTIONS SWEEPS LEGAL?
In Horton v. Goose Creek Independent School District (1982), the 5th Circuit of the United States Court of Appeals found that using dogs to sniff student cars and lockers is permissible and does not constitute a search within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment and is not a deprivation of liberty without due process as outlined in the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution.
Metroguard is not associated with any law enforcement agencies. It is not a requirement that we notify your local law enforcement agency for our visit to your establishment. Our job is to give you a definitive answer regarding a safety concern you may have regarding drugs, explosives, and bed bugs. It is the discretion of the client regarding disciplinary consequences regarding anything our canines may find. We recommend utilizing your local law enforcement’s canine services if you are seeking legal consequences.
We will arrive at our specified appointment time with the dog handler and one other Metroguard employee.
After brief introductions, you will specify the areas of your property you want searched, and the handler will lead the dog through those specified areas.
As aforementioned, you lead our handler(s) through the property.
It is the client’s responsibility to open any doors, cabinets, bags, etc., and conduct a physical search if the dog signals on that area.
We are not the police and would prefer not to be viewed that way. Our job is to give you a definitive answer to a question or concern you might have regarding bed bugs, drugs, or explosives.
Please limit the amount of people on the site (unless it is a large public event), particularly if it is an adverse business or domestic situation.
Yes and No.
If the dogs signal on an area and no contraband is found…that means that contraband was there within the last 7-14 days depending on air circulation and wind currents.
Yes. All dogs have teeth to bite their food and treats. Our dogs, however, are not trained to bite or be hostile. They are trained to come to the site and get to work. While they might sniff or lick you to say hello, their focus will be getting to work.
Because these are work dogs, we prefer to limit the dogs’ interaction with others so there is no risk of mistakenly being bitten.
