• SISTACH has Highly Specialised Canine Units to detect explosives, narcotics and people (stowaways), along with canine-assisted intervention in night-time surveillance services in secluded locations that may pose a risk to the Security Guard, most notably in industrial parks and isolated industries in unpopulated areas. 

    Excellence in the services provided by the canine unit comes from our thorough dog and guide recruitment process, assigning to each guide the dog that best suits their personal characteristics, followed by a process of dog-guide bonding lasting over 200 hours. Once the dog and handler team is trained and ready to work, they are both subject to ongoing training and tests with a view to obtaining the certification that allows them to work as a duo and keep up to date for all subsequent annual certifications. 

  • Explosive Detection Dogs: SISTACH K9 sniffer dogs can provide explosives detection services in a range of areas, for which certification annually accrediting the aptitude and quality of the dog and handler is required. The three most relevant areas are:

    · Air Cargo Inspection at Spanish Airports using AESA-certified dogs and handlers evaluated by the National Police Canine Unit.

    · Inspection of cruise supplies, docks and cruise terminals in the Port of Barcelona using APB-certified dogs and handlers evaluated by the Civil Guard’s Canine Unit.

    · Inspection of Cruise supplies, docks and cruise terminals in other Spanish Ports: Cadiz, Malaga, Cartagena, Tarragona, Bilbao, Vigo, Coruña. APB- or EASA-certified dogs and handlers are accepted even though these and other ports do not carry out evaluations or certifications.

  • · Narcotics Detection Dogs: SISTACH K9 sniffer dogs can provide narcotics detection services mainly in these two different areas.

    · Logistics and/or parcel companies, mainly inspecting international road parcels.

    · Cruises: Baggage inspection at crew embarkation. Inspection of passenger’s unaccompanied luggage. Inspection of terminals and check-in queues, especially on themed cruises.

    · Canine-assisted Intervention: Canine-assisted intervention is an effective, economical way to provide surveillance services in facilities subject and/or vulnerable to property crime and vandalism, especially in industrial parks or isolated industries in unpopulated areas on the outskirts of metropolitan areas.

    It is also particularly useful in sports, music, social events etc., preventing physical confrontations and acting as a crowd containment measure at access points to certain areas.
