How To Train A Personal Protection Dog For Your Family

  • Protection dogs are family dogs that will protect and defend their family in any situation they feel is threatening.

  • Protection dogs are meant to be socialized with other pets, family members, friends, and neighbors.

  • Protection dogs still need obedience training and need to know their position in the family. They can be dominant so it’s important to establish yourself as their leader.

Equip Your Dog to Take Appropriate Action

Before we go any further, we want to emphasize that we do not train guard dogs. We train personal protection dogs. There is a difference! The dogs we train are still a loving member of your family and will be friendly to your friends. In the case that someone tries to break into your property or harm a family member, the dog will respond powerfully to deter them.

Personal protection training is the most specialized training we provide, and with good reason. It is something we do with the sober understanding that the dog we train needs to recognize situations where attacking is appropriate — and that attacking puts the dog in harm’s way. For training done right, choose Family Dog Training.
