Security system installation at Wagz Pet Boutique in Bassetlaw

Increased security at Wagz Pet Boutique helps protect your pooch.

They’re man’s best friend and a much loved part of the family… but with dog theft increasing by an estimated 250% this year, Worksop pet grooming salon Wagz Pet Boutique decided it was time to  enhance security.

Offering everything from doggie daycare, to grooming and microchipping, Wagz is a loving, enriched environment designed to care for your pets. Customers rely on Wagz to keep their dogs happy, healthy and safe – and with security at front of mind they decided to contact Mint to find out how their business security could be improved.

Covid-19 has increased the amount of time families spend at home, which has led to a huge spike in demand for puppies and dogs. Prices have increased by many thousands of pounds, making dogs a valuable target for thieves.

Wagz owner Helen, was concerned that the increase in dog theft may make her business a target for criminals and she wanted to do everything she could to make sure that didn’t happen. Working with Helen, Mint were able to design and install a range of security measures to help protect her business and the pets she looks after.

Access control was one of our first considerations when enhancing the security system at Wagz. By making it more difficult for potential thieves to enter the premises, the chance of them committing a crime is much reduced.

We installed a video intercom system to the entry door to better manage who could enter the building, whilst still making it easy for genuine customers to get in and out. This allows Helen and her staff to check and visually confirm visitors’ identity before they can enter.

We also fitted the entry door with a Magnetic Lock (or Maglock) that allows Wagz staff to remotely unlock the door and allow customers to enter the building after checking. Once the ‘unlock’ button is released the door re-locks to ensure unverified visitors do not enter.

Inside the building, Mint installed a number of panic buttons in carefully considered areas and within easy reach for staff. If a staff member is confronted by a threat, the buttons can be pressed to trigger a panic alarm that connects directly to the police. This allows for a rapid response should a security incident occur.

A final preventative measure was the installation of a police monitored intruder alarm. Because Mint Security Systems is an NSI accredited security company, we are able to fit intruder alarms that are connected directly to the police, ensuring the fastest response times possible.

Protecting customers and staff is an important consideration for any business and we’re confident the team at Wagz Pet Boutique will feel reassured with the enhanced security measures we have put in place.
