Our Inland Empire dog obedience training classes go beyond the standard format. We are pleased to provide protection training in addition to dog obedience training and behavior modification. Any canine can be trained for obedience and behavioral changes, however not all dogs qualify for protection training. The must have the ideal temperament to learn when to guard or attack on command. If we determine that your canine is not suitable for protection training following our evaluation, we will give you the contact information of companies who can provide you with working dogs or puppies.
We utilize a variety of proven methods to train your dog for protection. Our trainers know how to use a dog’s natural instincts to train it in this way. For example, when your dog hunts, it guards its territory so no other animal can access its “attack zone.” We amplify this idea via special toys, sleeves, and protection costumes. We also use different trainers–doing so teaches the dog to protect its owners from a variety of threats/attackers/etc.
As previously noted, not all dogs are protection training candidates. If your dog has insecurity problems, it might become stressed while “on the job” and potentially bite people or otherwise become aggressive. Getting spooked by loud noises is another possibility that affects the dog’s ability to protect its human counterparts. Any dog who has anxiety and is not good at playing will encounter problems during protection training. Our trainers work extra hard with these dogs to improve the animal’s stress level, ability to relax and play, and more.
The best breeds for protection training include:
- German Shepherd
- Belgian Shepherd
- Belgian Malinois
- Belgian Tervuren
Our Inland Empire dog training classes train dogs for personal protection, law enforcement, government agents, business executives, entertainers, athletes, and more. We also provide estate protection training, or dogs trained to protect large properties. Dogs trained for personal protection are canines that live with families, including other pets. They are trained for both on and off-leash obedience, and are not trained to apprehend or bite people. However, it is possible to train personal protection canines to apprehend attackers or bite. Estate/Executive/Law Enforcement dogs are specially-trained to protect their owners at home, work, and during travel. They are trained for hectic lifestyles and subsequently provide highly-reliable protection.
