Veteran Owned, Veteran Run, Veteran Standards.
Armatus Canine is owned and run by ex-forces personnel who have a passion for all things canine.
We bring years of operational military experience, our passion, enthusiasm and fresh blood into the dog world and security industry with the aim of being a name related to professionalism, honesty and reliability.
We work day and night to ensure standards are maintained which is why we are a Security Industry Authority Approved Contractor for Security Guarding and keep our very own team in tip top condition (you never do stop learning).
Being proud veterans we have signed the Armed Forces Covenant to ensure fair treatment is given to HM Forces personnel past and present.

MWD Titch (Rtd)
Military Working Dog Titch is our mascot and for good reason. She served 8 years in the Army and was one of the most successful High Assurance Search Dogs to deploy to Afghanistan. Now retired from the Army she lives with her last army handler and our head trainer, Jazz.
We are now running out of our new 7 acre training ground located just outside Waltham-on-the-wolds, Leicestershire.
Whilst it is still in the early stages, we have big plans for what we want to achieve here. Classrooms, accommodation, search lanes and a whole variety of dog training equipment is well on its way.
