Canines have a long history of helping those in need. Whether they are guiding the visually impaired, retrieving help for the injured, or just providing companionship to those in need of emotional support, dogs have helped improved the quality of life for countless people.
Sadly, the lives of many people are still severely affected by disabilities that leave them vulnerable to crime. No one wants to be a victim of crime, but those with disabilities are at increased risk from criminals who may see them as an easy target. The inability to run away, or the inability to defend oneself is a frightening prospect. Thankfully, a personal protection dog can offer these people the security and safety they need to better enjoy their lives.
Owning a protection dog can help increase the confidence of those who might otherwise be afraid to travel alone, or to visit the corner-store or at night, or any number of other scenarios. Having a German Shepherd or a Belgian Malinois protection dog by ones side not only projects the appearance of being well-protected, but also ensures 100% true protection in the event of an attack. As well as offering security and protection, a personal protection dog can also be a life-line in the event of a medical emergency, by recognizing a crisis and retrieving help when appropriate. There is no question that the peace of mind offered by owning a protection dog is invaluable to those who seek to enjoy life to its fullest.
