Rigorous training underpins everything we do at Protection Dogs Worldwide. Whatever its natural temperament, an untrained dog should not be relied on for family or personal protection. Our training standards are high but considered, and ultimately work towards creating the ultimate family or personal protection dog.
The highest standard of obedience is the foundation of everything we do and seek to achieve. If a dog is not fully obedient, then we do not believe that it can progress to more complex training such as protection work. A family or personal protection dog needs to be relied upon to follow its owner’s commands in stressful situations while remaining focused on a threat. A protection dog must always release on command, and remain fully under control. Ultimately, this comes back to obedience which we place a heavy emphasis on.
Once we are content that a dog is fully obedient, we are able to undertake more advanced training. This will be varied and can be tailored to a client’s needs and circumstances, but will include bitework, protection scenarios, and acclimatisation and socialisation. We ensure that as well as responding appropriately to the kinds of threats they are likely to encounter, our dogs are properly socialised and well adjusted to everyday life both in and outside of the home. Family and personal protection dogs need to work in the real world, so we ensure that whatever we are training is properly tested and proven outside of sterile training environments.
We offer different tiers of trained dogs from a basic level of protection all the way up to the Elite and Director’s Dog classifications. Our training standards produce internationally sought after family and personal protection dogs. With clients around the world, our dogs speak for themselves.
