3. Canine Protection in the Cannabis Industry
When it comes to today’s security risks, medical marijuana dispensaries rank high. New laws, marijuana availability and a high volume of cash sales make a dispensary and the industry as a giant target waiting to be hit.
Dispensaries have a fairly extensive security requirement to include: preventing unauthorized intrusion, exterior lighting, panic buttons and video systems that would rival most casinos. Many also hire unarmed or armed security guards as well.
The underlying idea behind security layers is to make you, your family or business the smallest target possible through the implementation of up to date security layers. While these security layers are just and warranted, K-9 X-Factor would like to suggest the addition of a Personal Protection Dog to the fold.
A Personal Protection Dog (PPD) is just another layer, albeit a very effective one (as well as a Visual Deterrent). The PPD is a great deterrent as it is an efficient alarm system, it is intimidating (83 of 100 recent prisoners stated they would pass a target if a dog was present), has superhuman abilities, offers no technical difficulties, isn’t interested in money or product, and is an immediate threat to criminals. They also offer the added benefits of unconditional love and devotion while being always vigilant and keeping you, your family and business safe.
All systems have the possibility of failure. That is why we have layers. If one fails the next should work. A properly trained PPD & Handler doesn’t! Do you think your hourly paid security guard will engage and stay in the fight with the possibility of losing his or her’s life?
We’re not certain either, but we do know one of our PPD’s and handler will without question! “Given recent events in Texas, Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Arizona, the level of threat and/or risk has grown exponentially over the last couple of years.
If you are interested in learning more about K9 X-Factor’s PPD and Handler teams, contact us for more information at 408-569-0232. Take note that all of our PPD comes with a Highly trained handler. Both the PPD and the handler receive the continuous training, which keeps them on the cutting edge of all the latest techniques. K9 X-Factor PPD and Handler teams come equipped with other tools that make them stand as leaders in the industry. We can do aerial view of your growing operation with helicopters and airplanes to find the smallest security issues and send ground teams and canines to correct the issues.
And here in California, the rates have increased at a rate that is 23% higher than the states listed above (needless to say, rising at an alarming rate). You could get a “guard” who has passed the 8 to 16-hour security guard training mandated by the California Bureau of Security and Investigation Services. It is safe to say if something bad happened, not only would you be put in more danger by having untrained security guards at your facilities, the chances of him/her remaining calm in a stressful situation and/or acting at all is pretty slim.”
