Overview of our protection dog training

Evaluation and Selection

We begin by carefully evaluating your dog's temperament, drives, and suitability for protection training. We assess their natural protective instincts, courage, and ability to focus and respond to commands.

Obedience Foundation

A strong obedience foundation is crucial for a protection dog. We ensure that your dog has excellent obedience skills, including off-leash control, precise command execution, and reliable recall. This foundation establishes clear communication and control during protection work.

Bite Work

We introduce controlled bite work exercises to develop your dog's natural protective instincts. Our trainers use positive reinforcement techniques to teach your dog to apprehend and release on command while maintaining control and accuracy.

Aggression Control

In protection training, it is essential to have precise control over your dog's aggression. We teach your dog to display aggression on command and to cease aggression immediately upon command. This control ensures the safety of both the handler and others.

Scenario-Based Training

We simulate real-life scenarios to enhance your dog's ability to assess threats and respond appropriately. This includes scenarios such as home intrusion, personal protection, and controlled confrontations. Our trainers ensure that your dog learns to differentiate between real threats and normal situations.

Handler Training

We provide comprehensive handler training to ensure that you have the knowledge and skills to effectively handle and control your protection dog. This training covers command cues, maintaining control during high-stress situations, and responsible handling practices.

Please note that protection dog training is a specialised program, and the training process may vary depending on your dog’s individual capabilities and the specific requirements you have. Our experienced trainers will work closely with you to tailor the training to meet your needs and goals.

If you are considering protection dog training, we encourage you to contact us for a consultation to discuss your requirements and assess the suitability of your dog for this type of training. Together, we will develop a personalized training plan to help you achieve a reliable and well-trained protection dog.
