Properly trained "protectin dogs" have a distinct advantage - they have a on and off switch. Making them a safer than the average house dog. However, any RESPONSIBLE trainer would not train just any dog for the money - they also have the responsiblily of ensuring the stability of the owners prior to any training, and then a complete breakdown of the dog to ensure it is balanced.

Priest is a retired K( handler, NOT a protection dog trainer. Protection dog training is completely different from the training an LEO patrol K9 recieves, as is the desired temperament of the dog.


I have Dobermanns trained for protection, and have been training dog in protection for years. I have NEVER had a dog bite without clear provocation or explicit command. How many 'pet' owners can say
that?

Advising people that a large obedient dog without bite training is safer is ludicrous. It breeds false confidence, and if the dog ever faces a true threat, it will likely blow it's anal glands and run or hide. If it does try to fend off an attacker, and the attacker submits, the dog likely won't call off on command. So not so great
advice.

This article was paramount to telling people that real guns are prone to shooting on their own, so they should carry toy guns painted to look real. Not good.

A well-trained Protection dog will not Quote "the dog may respond if the owner forgets the dog’s watching and starts wrestling with someone in fun"


#1. the handler will know better then to wrestle with someone. The person should be aware at all times that the dog is
watching.

#2. Most protection dogs do not attack on there on will. Most will wait for a command from the handler
