What is a Personal Protection Dog?
Despite popular belief, protection dogs are awesome family dogs! They are NOT aggressive dogs! Aggression typically derives from fear. A well-trained Personal Protection dog is most often calm, collected and driven to protect when they feel the threat is a true perceivable threat. With the correct training, they will not decide for themselves that everyone and everything is a threat. A properly trained Personal Protection dog has great control and when bonded with the family, will be a great companion and cherished member of the family!
Another misconception is that just because you have one of the more popular breeds used for Police/Protection work, that he/she will automatically protect you and your family. What makes a great Personal Protection dog is his/her level of drive and temperament. Protection dogs must have high drive to excel at their work. High drive means a dog that is highly active, both mentally and physically, and requires plenty of exercise as well as mental stimulation just to be able to relax. The temperament of the dog must be calm, confident, and well-balanced in social skills and settings.
Three Levels of Protection Dogs
Level 1 – Family/Home/Estate
These dogs are trained for a family’s personal residence and/or estate. These dogs are primarily trained to alert the family of a potential threat, giving them enough time to call Law Enforcement and/or remove themselves to a secure position. The dog will bark aggressively and indicate where the threat is coming from. These dogs are not trained to bite, but rather ward off potential threats by acting aggressively.
Level 2 – Personal Protection
The Personal Protection dog is utilized for those who generally fear for their safety or are at a high risk of being confronted due to age, gender, profession or past experience. These dogs are trained to go everywhere and anywhere with the individual. These dogs go through a rigorous training regimen to ensure that they are stable, friendly with family members and others allowed into the individual’s life. The primary job of the Personal Protection dog is to ensure the individual’s safety by engaging the threat on command. They are trained to disable the threat until the threat is subdued and to allow a safe escape for the individual or until Law Enforcement arrives to place the subject into custody.
Level 3 – Executive Protection
Executive Protection Dogs (EPDs) are dogs that are trained specifically for high level threat individuals, families, business executives, high-profile individuals in the entertainment industry, or law enforcement/government agencies. EPDs are specifically trained for the clients needs and are fully capable of protecting their owners at home, work or during travel. These dogs are put through a rigorous training program to insure the most reliable protection four our clients demanding lifestyles.
