  • Home invasion: Dogs undergo specialized training to safeguard their owners and homes, effectively serving as a deterrent to crime and a devoted first line of defense for families.


  • Customized Obedience Training: In our customized obedience training program, essential commands are taught to ensure that your dog exhibits obedience in any environment. This training will make your dog a reliable and disciplined companion in all situations.


  • Exterior Perimeter Search: Dogs are trained to do a thorough search around the exterior perimeter while remaining vigilant for any potential threats that may be barricaded or hidden.


  • Executive or Estate Protection: dogs are specifically trained to provide an elevated level of security and peace of mind by actively identifying and neutralizing potential threats. These dogs are intensively trained to prioritize the safety of you and your family above all else, displaying unwavering loyalty and readiness to defend against any danger.


  • Passive Bite: passive bites training is essential for overall protection dog. It would be easy for an intruder to sit with his head in his arms, point a loaded weapon, and be ready to use it. Our protection dog training includes passive bite training to prepare for a realistic home invasion. We prepare for situations where the “bad guys” don’t seem “bad”.


  • Alert on command or by threat: A vigilant protection dog should instinctively react to potential threats, whether or not a specific command is given. While a dog trained to respond to an “attack” command is valuable, a dog that proactively barks at a stranger can be even more effective in alerting its owner to potential danger. Alert training plays a vital role in shaping a protection dog’s ability to assess and respond to potential threats.
