For Protection Dogs to continue to be a part of our culture they need to be stable, well balanced dogs. Protection needs to be a job, not the capping of a personality trait. The most useful, and successful personal protection dog is the one that can go with you and be with you in as many places as possible. This can only be accomplished if the dog is trained, safe and social in public. In my opinion, the very best protection dogs are the ones that nobody knows is a protection dog…until it is time to do their job.
A properly trained protection dog should be stable and have a very high level of control. This can only be accomplished if there is emphasis on obedience throughout the whole process. A protection dog trained in this manner is safer than many untrained pets. You also get the added comfort knowing your family is truly being protected.
