We are excited to provide protection training in addition to dog obedience training. Any dog can be trained for obedience, however not all dogs qualify for protection training. They must have the ideal temperament to learn when to guard or attack on command. An emphasis on obedience is made at each one of the levels of protection training we offer. We can evaluate your dog to determine their level of courage, drive, and temperament to see if it can work as a protection dog. If your dog does not meet the requirements, we will give you the contact information of local breeders who can provide you with working dogs or puppies.
Typically protection dogs come from a working line breed. This includes but is not limited to;
The Basic Protection dog training program is for the dog owner who has a dog that has the right drive and temperament, but doesn’t have a whole lot of courage. This program teaches the dog to bite when an aggressive person physically makes a move to physically attack the owner.
The Advanced Protection Dog Training program incorporates the Basic Protection Dog Training but requires a dog with much higher drive, courage, and temperament. This program is designed to take your dog from the training field to your home. You would be able to use your dog in home as personal protection and up to the point where you could use it to search for someone who has broken into your home and then alert you to their location. Then, if necessary, bite and hold the intruder if they pose a significant threat of violence to you and your family.
The Basic Obedience for the Protection Dog class will teach you how to build drive for the tug, how to properly play tug, how to mark and reward with the tug, obedience(sit, down, heel, recall) with the tug, and basic agitation for a bite sleeve or bite pillow. Part of the full Personal Protection Dog course includes passing a strict set of obedience commands that include on and off leash control while heeling at slow, medium, and a fast pace. The Basic Obedience class will get you ready for this portion of the Personal Protection Dog certification process.
The obedience class will start on January 19th at 9am and continue for the next 5 weeks. The class is 6 weeks long for an hour each class.
This class is the prerequisite for the Personal Protection Dog course. If you can pass the obedience evaluation portion of the Personal Protection Dog course, this class may be waived if you dog also displays the proper drives.
