Protection Dog Training in Colorado

Protection dog training is becoming more and more popular in an age of increasing crime. 

People are choosing to have their four-legged family member protect their loved ones, home, automobile and everything else. Many people do not want a firearm in their home, and some travel a lot for business – whatever the case, most people want the built-in, 24-hour security that a well-trained protection dog provides. Our protection dog class covers both the theories behind protection dog training as well as methodical instruction to train your dog in protection.

Even a dog with no training can be a deterrent to a burglar or attacker. Some dogs are natural guardians and bred to protect livestock. Some dogs seem to be protective, barking and charging, but then run for cover. 

Without protection training, it’s iffy. And iffy isn’t something you want when your life, or your family’s life and safety is on the line. The right dog, with the right training, can become a consistent, reliable source of protection for you, especially if the idea of using a gun or fighting off an attacker yourself doesn’t appeal to you. If you already have a dog, why not train it to be a guardian?

Understanding How Protection Dog Training Works

There are some misunderstandings about the suitability of dogs for personal protection training. Often, people assume 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, however, is not true. 

While we’d love to be able to train every dog as a personal protector, not all dogs can handle the training. Simply put, not all dogs have the temperament for the role or the training. That’s why we have to make careful choices when evaluating 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 the training and work would be mental torment for the dog. Only mentally and physically healthy dogs can successfully undergo this heavy canine training.

Protection Dog Training Works for Many Breeds

While some dog breeds tend to have problems, such as hip and elbow dysplasia, which prevent the normal movements, there are many breeds that are a suitable pick for protection dogs. Other hereditary, and physical defects such as epilepsy and eye disorders may also make the affected dogs unsuitable for protection work. Fortunately, most dogs do make great candidates for protection training. To determine if your dog is suitable for our protection programs, please contact us for a risk-free evaluation and training session for your dog.
