Our 3 Levels for Protection Dog Training Explained

We train Belgian Malinois and German Shepherd dogs for home protection in three different levels: Protector, Guardian and Guardian Plus. All of these dogs are given the same thorough off-leash obedience training, so your personal protection dog can easily stay by your side all day long.The difference between the training levels is the protection exercises that are involved. You can see a visualization of included exercises at our training levels comparison chart, or continue reading for an overview.

We will often train and list a dog for a lower training level than he or she is capable of completing. We do this in the interest of offering more variety in our selection. If you are considering one of our protection dogs for sale but would prefer him/her to have a higher level of training, please contact us to see if the dog you have selected is eligible or currently undergoing further training.

axel-4x3-2Protector Level
Our personal protection dogs trained at this level represent a tremendous value: total off-leash obedience and great on-leash protection.

On your command, these dogs are capable of turning on aggressively toward a threat, turning off, biting and releasing.



Guardian and Guardian Plusaspen-4x3-3-2
Our Guardian and Guardian Plus protection dogs take functional protection off-leash. This has some huge key benefits. For example:

  • You can call your dog to protect you from another room.
  • Your dog is trained in defending against weapons and fighting a threat with his/her entire body.
  • Your family can make a safe retreat while your dog remains engaged with the threat.
  • Your dog can be left in charge of guarding your car or home.
  • Your dog can be sent at an attacker over a great distance and be recalled at any moment.

The advantage of the Guardian Plus training level is that it includes our most advanced exercises.

  • Multiple Attackers: In a situation with 2 or more attackers, you can direct your dog to the most prominent threat.
  • Stealth Mode: There are times when your gut tells you that a situation is unsafe even when there are no visible causes for concern. In this situation, you can switch your protection dog into a state of silent, heightened preparedness. Without showing aggression overtly, your dog will be ready for anything.
  • Guard Specific Area: Even without the physical boundaries of a car or a room, you can direct your protection dog to watch over a specific object or area (such as the bottom of the stairs).

Depending on the natural ability of the dog, you can also request that tricks be added to any of our training levels. Examples of tricks you can request are: Spin, Roll Over, Beg, Bow, Stand, Walk Backwards, Weave Between Legs and Fetch a Beer.

Step by Step: Buying One of Our Protection Dogs for Sale

If our guide to raising a puppy for protection sounds too involved for your lifestyle, you might want to consider purchasing a fully trained Belgian Malinois or German Shepherd dog for protection. With this option, you know you’re getting a dog that has already been thoroughly evaluated and prepared for home defense, eliminating the risk of ending up with a dog not suited for home defense or companionship. From the time our dogs are puppies, they are handled by experienced professionals who know how to nurture their working drives and social nature. Once selected for our program and imported to the U.S.A, the dogs are given the most advanced obedience and protection training possible. The heavy lifting has already been done and the dogs are completely ready to keep your home safe.

You may be wondering if you can bond with an adult dog as well as you could with a puppy, and the answer is yes. Dogs have earned their reputation “man’s best friend” because of how readily they offer their unconditional affection. Even though we are training working dogs to be professional and precise, at the end of the day they are still loving dogs who would like nothing more than to protect and bond with their master. During the delivery process (shown here), our dogs are already forming a deep bond with their new family.

If this approach sounds like the one for you, let this post walk you through the process of selection, customization, purchase and delivery.

The first step is to figure out what qualities you want in a home protection dog. Start by browsing our current selection of protection dogs for sale. We also recommend taking a look at our Recently Sold page. These pages feature a variety of protection dog breeds, sexes, and training levels, but understand that any dog that we list on our website is healthy and fully socialized.

Choosing between protection dog breeds and appearance is simply a matter of personal preference. Click here to read our discussion on Belgian Malinois vs. German Shepherds for protection. The bigger decision is picking the right training level for your needs. An explanation of our training levels can be found here.

Once you have narrowed your search to a few of our protection dogs for sale, it’s time to fill out our short questionnaire. Clients in the U.S.A. should use this form, while we have a separate form for international clients. This form will let us better understand your lifestyle so that we can help you in your decision making process. After the questionnaire is submitted, we will follow up with a phone call within 24 hours. This is a great time to have any lingering questions answered and to learn more about the purchase and delivery process.

Our focus is on selecting, training and delivering the best protection dogs possible. We’re very careful about which dogs we select—we accept fewer than 5% of the dogs we evaluate in Europe. If none of our protection dogs we currently offer for sale seem like a good fit for you, contact us to let us know what you’re looking for. We often have dogs at our facility that have not yet been listed for sale. If none of the dogs in our inventory are just what you want, we’ll take your “wish list” on our next buying trip and bring you back a custom European import.

As soon as you have decided on the dog for you, we’ll begin modifying the dog’s existing training to suit your needs. If you selected a protection dog that was already listed for sale on the website, the training would already be mostly complete and simply needs to be customized to the client’s preferences. The amount of time needed for these finishing touches varies based on what is requested, but generally takes just a few weeks. Training a custom import from start to finish, on the other hand, may take up to 6 months. Once the training is finished, we will make the delivery.

Our protection dog deliveries are coordinated far in advance so that you can allocate time for learning how to handle your dog. The delivery takes just a few days, and by the end of it, you and your family members (or friends, hired help etc.) will have a full working knowledge of the training principles such that you can use and maintain the dog’s training every day.

Protection Bite Work Gets the Blood Going (& Sometimes Flowing)

The aftermath of yesterday’s training sessions.

The great thing about working with undercover training equipment is that you can cover it with clothing the dogs have never seen before. They don’t rely on seeing any equipment to turn on aggressively, protect their handler off-leash or go for the bite. Of course, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, and this picture does a good job of showing what our protection dog trainers’ arms can look like on any given day.

The thin materials we use prevent most punctures and help to distribute the power of the dog’s jaw more evenly, but there’s no avoiding the crushing and pinching that comes along with bite work. It can certainly hurt (especially toward the end of a hard week of training when even your bruises are getting bruises), but it’s the best way to train personal protection dogs. We got into this business because we’re passionate about family security and dogs, so we accept the fact that we don’t have the luxury of wearing bulky equipment or face masks. When we do “accessorize,” it’s so that we can expose the dogs to weapons, masks, and other potential variables they might encounter. As you can see in our videos, we attempt to emulate different responses that a threat might have to being bitten- from intense yelling to a more passive “play dead” approach.

Surprise attacks are one of the biggest tools that criminals have in their arsenal, but we take that advantage away by training each dog to go from 0-60 without any “warm up” period needed. When our dogs are least expect it, a decoy threat will appear out of nowhere. It’s amazing how quickly they go from fetching a ball to forcing away a threat.

Warso Goes to Tennessee

Warso is getting star treatment at his new home in Tennessee!

A couple of weeks ago we had the pleasure of delivering Warso, a German Shepherd we imported from Germany and trained as a home protection dog, to his new family in Tennessee. While the thought of traveling to new places for deliveries may seem daunting, to us it’s one of the best parts of the job. We have spent countless hours with each dog training them in protection and obedience, so naturally we become very attached to them. With deliveries, we are able to transfer this bond to a new family. Dogs like Warso are more than the best protection available to a home, they quickly become best friends with their new families. Our clients take their dogs to work with them on a daily basis. They visit family and friends and go on vacations and outings. It’s easy to bring these dogs anywhere because you know they’ll listen to your ever command and get along with everyone they meet. Even though we know we’ll miss each dog we deliver, we also know that our dogs are going to have a

So what exactly happens during a delivery? While our delivery is explained as the phase where we personally deliver your new dog to your home and show you their training and how to handle them, that only begins to describe what we really do. Our goal during the delivery phase is to make sure that by the time we leave you have the same level of control with your dog that we do as their trainers. With the extensive training and various handlers our dogs have had, adjusting to someone new is no problem. Our dogs arrive fully trained and we’ve already done extensive customized training for individual situations. The actual focus of the delivery is more on training our clients. We show them how their dog responds, and we cover every area— including basic care, obedience and protection commands. We visit family and friends, second homes, workplaces and anywhere a client plans to bring their dog. We acclimate them to car rides and living with any other pets you might have.

Our clients all have unique situations and we’re happy to tailor the delivery to them. If you want friends and family members to be able to handle your dog, we’ll show them the training principles during the delivery. We’ll practice obedience commands and simulate protection scenarios, including break-ins, assaults and carjackings. We even have clients who ask us to unexpectedly “break in” to their homes just to test out their dogs. By the time we leave, you and your dog will be ready to handle any situation you might come across. Most importantly, you’ll be able to maintain the training and apply our techniques to new situations.

Once our dogs have started to bond with their new families, they have a new life ahead of them and are eager to please. We’re always available for our clients after the delivery. We don’t see the delivery phase as the end of the process. Instead, we keep in touch with our clients long after delivery to see how everything is going. Our clients become part of our family and we receive pictures, videos, holiday cards and other updates. For us, there is no better feeling than delivery a well-trained companion who will become part of the family.

Update from Warso’s owner:

Warso is doing GREAT! He is a supermodel! He ran 3.2 miles (29 mins) with me this morning. It’s amazing how many people stop to talk. We couldn’t be happier with Warso! I doubt you’ve had a better match of the right dog/family! Loving him!

“Alpha Dogs” Are No Personal Protection Dogs

Nat Geo Wild has launched a new show, “Alpha Dogs,” which features German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois working dogs, and we’ve been getting some questions about the show and how closely it relates to the work we do at Protection Dogs Plus. Simply put, the dogs you see on “Alpha Dogs” are police and military dogs and they have very little in common with personal protection dogs.

There are some similarities here: we do train German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois to bite, we do encourage dogs with some of the same techniques that you see on the show (such as motivating dogs by using their food and toy drive), and we do condition dogs to be comfortable working around gunfire and other distractions. But to paraphrase the show itself, “these (military dogs) aren’t pets.”

The truth is that military and police dogs aren’t good for homes, let alone children. Police and military dogs are selected for different traits than personal protection dogs; unlike police and military dogs, we look for a combination of power and friendly, stable temperaments. This complete package is much harder to find than dogs that are simply good at attacking targets or searching by nose. We know this because we have had experience in training dogs for other purposes than just personal protection, and can say that very few of the dogs chosen for police or military work would be the right fit for our program- probably around 5% of them. In “Alpha Dogs,” the dogs shown have little to no functional obedience training when they’re considered “finished” and many of the handlers on the show don’t seem to have control.

The trainers on “Alpha Dogs” are professionals, but they’re in a different industry than us, and therefore their knowledge and background is different than ours. They get dogs and usually turn them over in a matter of weeks, as they do not have to spend as much time training their dogs for obedience and sociability as we do. We train our dogs for months with every situation imaginable, and the personal protection dogs we train epitomize control.

This morning, for instance, we worked with Rex on one of our most valuable exercises: “turning off.” It’s one thing to get a dog to turn on aggressively against an attacker, but it’s another thing to make that same dog friendly on command. The dogs in “Alpha Dogs” are shown biting and then refusing to “turn off” or release their bite. Rex, like all of our protection dogs, can be told to instantly stop displaying aggression and release his bite on command. The scenario goes like this: we send Rex off-leash to bite a decoy with undercover equipment, and a second before Rex hits his target we give him the command to lie down. There’s no delay- Rex is “off” now, the decoy is safe and the dog can now be approached and pet. Our dogs do not have to be redirected, or given a ball to be rewarded each time because we’ve taken our training past that point and we’ve transitioned them to respond to a verbal command said in a normal tone.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see a reality show about personal protection dog training, but even that wouldn’t give you an idea of what happens at Protection Dogs Plus. TV producers like drama and that’s just not what we’re about. We take precautions so that our dogs aren’t biting the hand that holds them. We raise dogs to be a pleasure in your home, not just to look extreme for the cameras. And when it comes to training, we never rush the process or compromise our values.

Video Update: Advanced Protection Dog Exercises with Curtis

If you saw our original video of Curtis performing in different training exercises, be sure to watch the updated version we posted today. The video now features an additional two minutes of Curtis handling multiple attackers, guarding objects and more. We couldn’t be happier with how Curtis has progressed, and if you want to take your dog’s training to the next level, read about our puppy and adult protection dog training programs.

Kidnappings Threaten Travelers to Mexico, Brazil, Colombia and More

Rex is quick to handle carjacking and kidnapping scenarios in his protection work. (Video)

Kidnapping is a major part of our protection dog training curriculum, but we don’t just teach our dogs to be the best protection for kids and adults in their homes. This type of crime is a real concern for travelers and executives, and we train our dogs to perform at any moment and in any environment.

Central and South America are closely associated with kidnappings, and according to Castle Rock International, the places you are most likely to be kidnapped in are Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Venezuela, the Philippines, Nigeria, the Chechnya Region of Russia, Afghanistan, Iraq and Haiti.

Kidnappings for ransom or extortion are more common than you might think. Some insurance companies offer policies to international travelers that will reimburse holders for costs associated with a kidnapping, from ransoms to mercenary teams.

At Protection Dogs Plus, we have our own idea of insurance against kidnappings.

Criminals take advantage of tourists and travelers who are already out of their element, and danger could lurk around the next corner or stoplight. A criminal’s opportunity presents itself in ways you might never expect. For instance, while some modern cars will automatically lock their doors when moving, many will automatically unlock them again in park, and other cars have no automatic lock feature at all. This inconsistency means that if you’re driving an unfamiliar rental car in a strange place, you aren’t likely to always remember to lock the doors.

When we’re training for carjacking scenarios, we’re also training our protection dogs for kidnapping situations like the one that befell Eduardo Garcia Valseca near San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico:

“A truck crashed into the back of their Jeep, pinning them. Masked bandits armed with pistols and hammers smashed the windows of their car and dragged them to the ground.”

One of our training exercises is to have a decoy attempt to pull the handler out through a door or window. Our protection dogs will rush to the door or window the assailant is accessing to fend them off. In many situations, just turning your dog on aggressively will deter a kidnapper from trying to gain access to the vehicle, and this protection continues when you leave the car and your dog stays by your side.

Kidnappers don’t always work alone. Our Guardian and Guardian Plus protection dogs are versed in handling situations like this one, from Nassau, Bahamas:

“As we all lay face down on the ground, we were being robbed by one man after the other tied up our tour guide. There was a lot of scuffling and a flurry of activity.”

The multiple attacker exercise allows you to decide whether to send your dog after the threat closest to you first, or the threat that poses the biggest danger at the moment (e.g. an armed threat).

As crime increases in popular destinations like Puerto Rico, we urge travelers not to take their safety for granted. Stay vigilant!

Glossary of More Advanced Protection + Obedience Exercises

Guardians like Asterix can do a lot more than smile for the camera.

By Dan Moore

Our sole purpose is to pair families with trained protection dogs that will keep them safe. We do this by taking our training to the extreme, whether it’s fully immersing the dogs in various home and public environments or teaching them the most advanced protection commands possible. In conjunction with our training levels chart, this glossary will help you understand some of the exercises our dogs are capable of.

Heel: Your protection dog stays virtually glued to your leg as you walk, giving you his or her full attention and sitting whenever you stop. Your dog will resume walking when you do.

Relaxed Heel: Similar to the heel command, your dog will stay by your side until released. The difference here is that the dog walks in a more casual way within a three foot radius of your body. This becomes a constant part of our clients’ routines- from walking down a busy sidewalk to taking dogs out to the bathroom.

Down in Motion: Even if your dog is moving at full speed, you can give the word and your dog will drop to a sit or down position.

Place: With this command you have the power to designate a place for your dog to sit or lie down on command. This is a great command to use if you’re having company over and want your dog to keep a low profile.

Food/Toy Refusal: Your dog will wait for your command before taking food or toys.

Turn On Aggressively: In a situation where you need your protection dog to fend off an attacker, you can give the command to “turn on.” Your dog will enter a state of heightened alertness while baring his or her teeth, growling and barking and monitoring the situation. Your dog will await your command and will only actually pursue an attacker if you give the order.

Turn Off: When the situation is defused and you want your protection dog to return to its normal gentle self, you can give your dog the command to “turn off.” Your dog will not show any aggression again until you request it.

Target Parts of Body: We train our protection dogs to go after more than a sleeve or suit, and to be able to leverage their power and fight with technique. If you give your dog the command to attack, he or she will target whichever part of the body will neutralize the threat quickly.

Overcome Obstacles: Our protection dog training takes obstacles into account. From climbing walls, hills, rocks and furniture to jumping out of and into cars and windows, we prepare our dogs to size up a situation and find the best path forward, all while maintaining a tight focus on the threat and any additional commands given by the handler. Exposing our dogs to a variety of obstacles and environments minimizes distraction and improves their response time.

Fighting Skills: Guard dogs and protection dogs may be most known for barking and biting, but our approach is more holistic: we teach our dogs to use their entire body as a tool to fight against a threat. By using a muzzle to remove the option of biting, our dogs learn to tenaciously wrestle, scratch and claw until the handler turns them off.

Turn of Passive Threat: Your dog will turn on aggressively against even a passive threat on your command. A common mistake in protection dog training is to only prepare a dog to go after someone moving in a threatening way. The problem here is that the dog is only conditioned for a very specific set of circumstances. Someone can threaten you without any sudden or imposing movements. Our training is designed so that you can ask your dog to show aggression and deter the threat before they even have a chance to escalate to physicality.

360° Secure: Your dog will turn on aggressively against an attacker (showing teeth, barking and growling) while staying glued to your body in a tight circle, protecting you from attack in any direction. The dog will only bite if you give an additional command, or if the threat attempts to touch you or intrude into this protective barrier.

Guarded Escape: Once you have given your dog the command for 360° Secure, you can walk away from the situation. Your dog will remain in a heightened state of alert until you’re safe and give the command to turn off.

Stealth Mode: Under this command, your dog will be covertly primed for action and waiting intently for an additional command. If you have a gut feeling that you’re in a potentially dangerous situation but do not want to escalate things by turning your dog on aggressively, you can simply put your dog in this standby command.

Multiple Attackers: In the event that there are multiple threats to your safety, you can send your protection dog on a specific person. Your dog will make eye contact with you and follow the signal you give. You can recall your dog at any time, and you can have your dog switch to a different threat mid-bite. By using your judgment and selecting the most prominent threat at any given time, you are given the most control possible in a dangerous situation.

You can see these exercises in action by watching our videos, and be sure to contact us for any additional information.

TX, NY, IL and AZ Have Cities with Most Burglaries (Yahoo)


Yahoo! Finance has compiled an interesting list of the American cities with the most burglaries. Since burglaries are one of the main reasons that people guard their homes with protection dogs, we thought it was worth discussing here. Protection Dogs Plus began in Texas, so we’ll start off with the Lone Star State’s crime stats:

Dallas is the center of the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metropolitan area, an area which had a gross metropolitan product of $374 billion, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. Of the 61,859 property offenses committed there in 2011, 18,727 were burglaries….the population of San Antonio had grown to 1.3 million, an increase of 16 percent since 2000. This increase is part of the overall population explosion that has been going on in Texas in the new millennium. This growing city experienced 80,868 property offenses in 2011, of which 15,334 were burglaries.

San Antonio seems to be doing a great job of bringing in new residents but not a great job of keeping out crime. Let’s head a couple hundred miles east and see how Houston is doing:

Houston…saw 108,336 property offenses in 2011, of which 68,596 were categorized as “larceny-theft” and 12,281 were motor vehicle thefts…27,459 were burglaries, which puts the city at the top of the list. So if you live there, lock your doors when you go out at night.

Locking your doors is never a bad idea, but let’s remember that criminals are no strangers to breaking and entering. There are a variety of ways to bypass door and window locks: cutting or breaking glass, lock picking, brute force and so on. Wouldn’t it be better if we could stop the bad guys while before they’ve even broken in? We think so—that’s why we train our protection dogs to block off doors and windows and show aggression toward would-be intruders. Our dogs have the bite to back up their bark, but most criminals in their right mind would be deterred from escalating things at that point.

When it comes to sheer number of crimes, this next city surpasses San Antonio, Houston and Dallas:

Chicago…saw a whopping 118,239 property offenses in 2011, of which 26,420 were burglaries.

Let’s also remember to keep things in proportion: the article states that Detroit saw 15,994 burglaries in 2011. That’s around 10,000 fewer than Chicago, but consider that the population of Chicago is almost 4 times greater.

Indianapolis: Among the 46,967 property offenses reported in 2011, 15,122 were burglaries. There were also 26,588 offenses categorized as “larceny-theft” and 5,257 motor vehicle thefts.…In 2011, Columbus (Ohio) experienced 49,043 property offenses, 15,169 of which were burglaries.

One reason that guard dogs are so sought after in places like Texas is that neighbors are often miles apart and there are no friendly eyes to keep watch over properties. But the statistics from larger cities like Chicago and Indianapolis speak to the fact that neighbors are by no means guaranteed protection. You have to question if neighbors would intervene or even notice a property crime in progress. In 2011, Los Angeles, California saw 17,264 burglaries and New York City saw 18,159.

Since we’re located in New Hampshire on the Massachusetts border, we have a great opportunity to prepare our dogs for a variety of settings. When we sell a protection dog, it doesn’t matter if they’re going to Washington, D.C. or Sugarland, Texas, because our dogs have done protection work in both the woods of New Hampshire and the alleys of cities like Boston, Newburyport and Salem. We test our dogs’ off-leash obedience in crowds and with distractions such as cars and bikes. Some of our dogs are specifically selected for their mellow, low energy personalities- perfect for life in an apartment or small house.

Should You Raise a Puppy for Protection or Buy a Fully Trained Protection Dog?


Raising your own protection dog is possible, but it’s also very difficult. It takes the combination of a dog with the drives needed for protection work and an owner with a lot of time- and more importantly, knowledge- to raise a dog that can one day offer functional protection.

We want to be very clear about two things:
  1. We don’t recommend that people try to raise a protection dog on their own.
  2. We understand why someone would want to raise their own protection dog and we’re here to help those who do.

Having said that, we can start talking about the deciding factors between raising a protection puppy and buying a trained protection dog.

Why might a person try raising their own protection puppy?

Nothing is more exciting for a family than bringing home a new puppy. The bond between dogs and their families is remarkable, and we have all seen dogs act protectively toward their owners. But we want to again dispel the notion that the instincts of an untrained dog are enough to be a security system. As we uncovered in our first post, people who were expecting their pet dogs to protect them were surprised to find that their dogs barely resisted a simulated home invasion.

Another reason that a person might attempt to raise their own protection dog is cost. The price tag of a properly imported and trained protection dog can be a surprise to those not familiar with the process. Consider that we visit European countries to hand select our dogs. We purchase them, ship them to the U.S., and bring them up to date on all of their vaccines. And that’s just the start. Next comes daily care, feeding and training by multiple trainers in dozens of scenarios to ensure our dogs ready to become your family’s perfect home defender and companion.

What are the pitfalls associated with raising your own protection puppy?

With puppies, there are no guarantees. The only exception is that you can guarantee that housebreaking, chewed furniture, clothing and electronics will all present a formidable headache.

Will the puppy you bring home be healthy? Will your new dog have the natural makeup needed for personal protection? Unless you really know what to look for or have had expert guidances, chances are it won’t. That’s because most dogs don’t have the drive and tenacity needed for this kind of work. It takes years of experience to be able to recognize puppies with potential as protection dogs. We don’t want you to end up with puppy that doesn’t fit your needs. If you’re considering buying a puppy for personal protection, contact us so that we can help you make the best decision.

If you’re lucky enough to find a puppy suitable for protection, we congratulate you on completing the first part of a complex journey! Remember though, great dogs are made, not born. Raising a puppy for protection is a completely different process than raising a pet. This undertaking is far more difficult because every single experience that you give your new dog will influence his or her ability to move forward with protection training. If you don’t handle your puppy in exactly the right way, you could stymie their progress without even knowing it. Many people trying to raise a protection puppy for the first time are left with a dog they feel attached to but that they can’t count on as a protector.

Let’s say you beat the odds and find and raise a puppy that can complete protection exercises. Can you be sure that your dog will only bite when you say so, and be loving to your friends and family the rest of the time? The socialization process needs to be treated with the same care as things like bite foundations. 99% of the time, a protection dog needs to be loving and tolerant toward people, children and other animals. Improperly socialized dogs will develop fear and aggression issues. If there is any question in your mind about this, please leave protection training to professionals. Dog bites are just too much of a liability to make this type of training an amateur hobby.

What are the advantages of buying a fully trained adult protection dog?

You want a dog that will keep your home safe while you’re away and lovingly greet you when you come home from your job. Making that a reality is our job. When you buy a protection dog from us, you’re getting a great dog without the guesswork. You already know that the dog is healthy and fully capable of being an obedient member of your family. You know that your dog can excel in a protection situation, and you know that you never have to worry about the dog with your kids. Buying one of our trained protection dogs will save you frustration and expense. We show you exactly what you’re getting and we back it up with our guarantee.

Just how does an adult dog become part of your family?

We hear time and time again from clients that they cannot believe how quickly their new protection dog bonded with their family. In the first day of delivery, you’ll see your dog begin to learn your tones and feel comfortable in your home. Within days, our trainers are able to give control to even the youngest members of the household. The dog quickly adapts to the routine of the home environment and the preferences of its new owners. If you have purchased or adopted adult dogs in the past, this might seem very foreign to you. But remember that these are fully trained dogs that have lived in the homes of professional dog trainers, ’and it’s not luck that makes them a good fit for homes. After meticulously selecting each of our dogs, we pair you with the one that will match your lifestyle and spend weeks on end making sure they are ready for delivery.
