K9 transport vehicles enable personnel to carry canine units effectively while maintaining sufficient visibility, safety, comfort, and versatility. Each of these upfit benefits enhances and reinforces the other three, enabling canines and officers to perform their duties at a moment’s notice. The following is intended as a high level overview of this topic. The specifics will vary somewhat depending on the automobile’s design and model.
Havis’ K9 transport inserts provide enough room for the animal to move about while the vehicle is in motion. This is an essential feature that enables the canine to spring into action without delay. It is relatively easy to overcome any obstruction in field of vision created by the K9 insert by installing supplementary rear and side view mirrors or by installing a rearview camera with a monitor mounted on the instrument panel. This option provides ideal visibility enhancement.
Summertime is especially hazardous for animals transported in motor vehicles. It only takes a few minutes in a hot car or truck to harm or even kill a dog. Havis offers a variety of options to mitigate these risks, including heat alarms, engine stall sensors, and pager alert systems.
Your canine personnel work just as hard as their human counterparts. They spend long hours traveling in vehicles, which can become monotonous. Yet they’re expected to spring into action at a moment’s notice. Making provisions for their comfort is important not only for their effectiveness but also for their well-being. We offer options such as ventilation fans and built-in water bowls with this purpose in mind.
Why Choose Havis?
Havis’ K9 transport modules are designed so that our installers can simply bolt them to the auto’s interior rather than welding them to the frame. This allows quick, easy interchangeability from one unit to another. It’s important to upfit your vehicles with this purpose in mind in order to get the most out of your new equipment.
