South Africa has some of the highest crime rates in the world with an average of 51 murders, 142 sexual offenses, 363 violent robberies and 687 residential burglaries per day. These are only the reported crimes; thousands of others go unreported.
Farm murders in particular have been a massive problem with white farmers falling victim to brutal and barbaric hate crimes and racism. There has been 357 attacks and 74 murders between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017 alone. Being a white farmer in South Africa is now considered one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.
There is an ever increasing need for added security and protection. With the country’s unemployment being at 26.5 percent the crimes continue to get worse, and with a corrupt government and poorly trained police on the streets South Africans are having to take their safety and security into their own hands. Protection and security trained dogs are proving to be one of the most valuable tools when it comes to safety. Not only are they your early warning systems and deterrents, but if need be can and will engage immediately to stop a threat and protect the family. They are highly effective weapons without being deadly and best of all, can never be used against you.
