When it comes to buying dogs for protection, keep in mind that you won’t be relying on tactical commands every day. We want our clients to be safe when the unexpected happens, so we give each dog the most functional and effective training available in the industry. At the same time, it is important to us that our dogs add value to homes every single day by being exceptional companions.
To ensure that each dog has perfect manners on and off-leash, we turn to the expertise of our sister company, First Choice Canine, founded by Protection Dogs Plus owner Khaled Behisy.
These trainers are responsible for the synchronized obedience routine you can see here.
First Choice Canine has a hard-earned reputation of excellence in puppy foundation training, on and off-leash obedience, behavior modification, trick training and more. If you already have a pet dog and will be adding a personal protection dog to the family, First Choice Canine works with all breeds and ages, and can work with the rest of the dogs in your household as well.
With obedience by First Choice Canine and security by Protection Dogs Plus, your home protection dog is the best of both worlds.
The obedience component of your protection dog’s training is vital. It’s not until you spend a day enjoying your new dog’s perfect recall and attentiveness that you begin to understand that our personal protection dogs are also fun to have around.
Our trainers teach every dog commands that will become the basis of your everyday relationship.
Our most popular off-leash exercise is one that comes with every dog: relaxed heel. This one command will keep your dog walking within a few feet of your body without the need for a leash. This is a versatile command that you’ll use for taking your dog out to the bathroom, going on a hike, finding your way through crowded cities or just hanging out around the house.
Some people are afraid of large dogs, either out of instinct or experience. If while out with your dog, a person approaching you appears nervous, you can casually put your dog into a command such as sit, down or beg. This demonstrates to the passersby that your dog is friendly and controlled, and will not harm them.
Our dogs are trained to respond to commands said once, in a normal tone. You don’t have to strike a pose in front of your dog and yell, “Sit! Sit! Sit!” to the amusement of onlookers. Dogs have great hearing, and humans have other things to worry about, so at Protection Dogs Plus, we believe in keeping things simple.
