Executive And Family Protection Dogs

Every week, we receive a significant number of emails and messages enquiring about executive protection, family protection, and personal protection dogs. Potential customers and clients often ask about the differences between these types of dogs. While they do exist, they are minimal and should not be overly read into.

Ultimately, they are all slight variances on protection rather than guard classifications. Guard dogs work without a handler and are generally left at a site without any supervision. In contrast to this, protection dogs are highly trained and work directly through a dedicated handler. By default, a personal protection dog is dedicated to guarding an individual rather than a location, while a family protection dog will have been trained to work in home environments. “Executive” is primarily a marketing term used to indicate a premium product.

For more information or advice on how to navigate purchasing a protection dog, do not hesitate to contact us. We would be more than happy to help and advise in any way we can.
