As a protection dog owner, you have taken the responsibility of doing anything possible to ensure that your dog is happy and healthy. This responsibility is not always something that everyone takes to heart. Sometimes people get so caught up in their own lives that they forget about their dog’s needs and well being. It is very important for you to understand your protection dog’s needs in order to fulfill them successfully. The basic need of your dog which you should most definitely know are food, water, and shelter. You should be well aware as a protection dog owner that your dog needs to be fed regularly and have water available for them at all times. Also your dog needs exercise, bathing and grooming, these are all necessary in order to ensure that your dog has the proper nutrition and stays healthy. Another need that is necessary to keep your protection dog healthy is stimulation. Your dog’s brain needs to be stimulated often, in order to keep them satisfied and balanced. What many people do not realize is that your dog need the mental stimulation by watching everything around them, this can be done by simply taking them for a walk.
Consistency, it is something that is essential for your protection dog to have, in order to feel safe and secure. Your dog needs to feel like part of your family, meaning that you must think of it as such. You must include them in family activities. It is important for you to assess your current situation before bringing a dog into your home, because it is not fair for them if you neglect them due to your busy life. Your protection dog needs to socialize with other dogs and people starting from when he is just a puppy. A responsible dog owner will provide their protection dog with medical care, including taking them to the vet regularly for shots and check-ups. If you ever have to leave your dog for something like a vacation, it is crucial to consider ahead of time what you will do with them. If you choose to board them, visit the kennel in person to make sure that it is a clean, safe, inviting environment, so you know that your dog will be taken care of. More than anything it is important to know that one of the most important needs of your dog is love. It is essential for you and your family to give your dog as much love as you possibly can. Treat your protection dog in a way that is kind, loving way and in return they will learn to love and respect you.

People seek canine protection for a wide variety of reasons. Surely, every person has at least one thing in they world that they feel is worth protecting. However, for those that take the extra step in protecting themselves and their loved ones by purchasing a personal protection dog, the improvement in their quality of life is often drastic.
The importance of protecting ones self from harm is often overlooked. People tell themselves “I live in a safe area,” or “it could never happen to me,” but the unfortunate reality is that crime can happen to anyone. Many people looking to purchase protection dogs for themselves do so because they have already been victims of violent crime. For these people, recovering from the trauma of the experience they endured is a long and painful process. For some, the extent of the psychological trauma is so extreme that they have trouble even leaving their own homes for fear of being victimized again. To own a protection dog is to know that you can safely leave your house at night with your dog at your side to protect you. For victims of violent crime, this sense of security is a life-changing experience, and a crucial milestone along the path to once again living a life free of fear.
Of course, not everyone looking to purchase a protection dog does so solely for themselves. Any father or mother will agree that protecting their family comes above all else in their lives. Owning a personal protection dog is like having a loyal companion who will not hesitate to risk its own life in order to protect you and your family at all times. A family with a protection dog is a family that is able to sleep soundly at night knowing that their German Shepherd, Belgian Malinois or Dutch Shepherd will always be there to protect them and their home.

The sport of Schutzhund originated with the introduction of the German Shepherd into the German police forces during the early 1900s. Prior to this, the only working role for a dog was to guard or herd livestock in rural areas. In urban areas, dogs were treated as pests, and regarded as being both unclean, and unwelcome. As the role of the shepherd dog became obsolete in an increasingly industrialised society, and bigger urban centers saw an increase in violent crime and attacks against police officers, German Shepherd breeders saw an opportunity to introduce the German Shepherd as an aid to police officers. Unfortunately, due to the social stigma of being accompanied by what was then seen as a “filthy” and “vicious” animal, even police officers themselves were reluctant to bring working dogs into urban society. The sport of Schutzhund was arranged as a way to prove a dog’s worth, loyalty and obedience. It also provided a means through which they could uphold breeding standards. Only dogs who performed admirably in Schutzhund were permitted to breed.
The term Schutzhund itself means “Protection Dog” in German. While many of the activities are no longer relevant to protection work today, all of the activities can be divided into either tracking, obedience, or protection-related. Protection exercises involve the use of a decoy. Unlike other dog sports, where the decoy outfit covers the entire body, the decoy in Schutzhund only wears heavy padding on one arm, with the rest of the body being protected only by loose and durable clothing. While this ensures that the mobility of the decoy is not impaired, it creates an unrealistic scenario in that the dogs can only be trained to bite one arm.
Although I have respect for the sport Schutzhund, it is only a sport. There are too many companies that are selling Schutzhund title dogs, and selling them as protection dogs. A Schutzhund title dog, working on a groomed field, biting on a sleeve, is not a true protection dog. If one wants a true protection dog, then one must purchase a dog that has been working in the real world. We at Command Control K9 train all of our protection dogs in the real world. We not only get our dogs to bite on a bite suit, we have them do building searches, vehicle hijacking, targeting the weapon hand, food refusal, guarding surrounding premises, man scent tracking, bite on elevation and muzzle work. The Dogs not only know how to bite, but also know how to fight.
The bottom line is a sporting dog will not protect you and your family, whether it is Schutzhund title dog, French Ring title dog, or K.N.P.V title dog, even if one were to cross train.
