What makes a reliable protection dog
There are some misunderstandings about the suitability of dogs for protection training. Often people accept without question that every dog that is a so-called working dog or herding dog is able to complete the intensive training for protection work. This belief is, however, not true, and therefore we have to make careful choices when selecting dogs for this role. Nervous and frightened dogs, for instance, should not be considered. With a lot of perseverance, an experienced handler may achieve something with such a dog, but for the dog herself the training and work will mostly be a mental torment, and this will be expressed sooner or later in versus disorders.
Only mentally and physically healthy dogs can successfully undergo this heavy training. For example, some dog breeds tend to have several problems, such as hip and elbow dysplasia, which prevent the normal movements of the dog. As well, other hereditary, physical defects such as epilepsy and eye disorders make the affected dogs absolutely unsuitable for protection work.
