If you're not sure which dog training program is right for you, or if you have any questions before you sign up for training, we recommend a training consultation and evaluation. This is a chance for you to talk to Dion about your dog's behavior, training expectations, and figure out which training program is right for you. Please note that these consultations are for discussion only. There will be no hands-on training, but you are welcome to bring your dog along during the consultation.
Personal Protection Dog Training
Personal protection dog training is becoming increasingly popular, as crime continues to rise in Denver and surrounding areas. Many of our clients choose to have their four-legged family member trained, to add an additional layer of security to their home and loved ones. Many people do not want a firearm in their home. Some travel a lot for business, but most want the 24-hour watchful eyes and companionship that a well-trained protection dog can provide. Our protection program covers both the theory behind protection dog training, and the methods to develop and train your dog for personal protection.
Please note: There are many misunderstandings about the suitability of dogs for personal protection training. Oftentimes, people assume, without question, that any dog that is of working or herding lines is suitable to complete the intensive training required for protection work. This is not true, and we have to make careful choices when selecting dogs for this role. Nervous and frightened dogs, for instance, or dogs lacking sufficient drive, will NOT be considered.
To be eligible for our protection dog training programs, all dogs and handler teams must complete either our 60-Minute In-Person Consultation or one of our Private Dog Training Programs prior to consideration.

We are available for travel throughout the United States and Colorado for group training seminars,
