Security at The Dog House
The Dog House is based in an extremely rural location, tucked away down a wooded mile-long, bumpy single track which ends with a gate and then a ford through a river. Even some neighbours who have lived locally for years don’t know we exist. All team members carry radios and The Dog House is manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All contractors are signed in and out. We also have 4 geese, 3 labradors, 6 guinea fowl, 8 peafowl, and a parrot that alerts us when a visitor arrives. There are 21 live CCTV cameras active at all times and motion sensor lights in various buildings a few yards from the farmhouse and our staff flat. We are situated in one of the lowest areas for crime rates in the United Kingdom.
