So you want to own a personal or family protection dog?

Here is a small check list that you should read to see if you are ready to own one of these extraordinary animals. 

  • Do you have enough space for daily exercise 

  • Do you have at least 1 Hour a day to exercise 

  • We feed our dogs raw meat, fruit (no grapes),vegetables, eggs, oils. Can you provide 2 daily meals of the same nutritional value?

  • We advise that dogs be sent back to us for a week, once to twice a year to refresh the things they have learnt and to add any further training necessary or required by the client. Can you commit to this?

  • Do you have a kennel made ready or an area in the house that can be used as the dogs area?

  • Can you offer 10-15 years of your life to these daily routines.

Now that you understand the responsibilities of owning a protection dog, the next question is how much will one cost? 

We have posted some of our personal protection dogs available for sale, globally. However we believe that a personal protection dog should not be chosen from a picture on a website. We need to find out what exactly your needs are, from your dog.  After a discussion with you on the phone, we would then decide what dog would best meet your needs and send you all the information about that dog along with the cost. The delivered price anywhere in the world, for a fully trained personal protection dog ranges between 8,000 and 14,000 Euros, depending on the dog's level of training, it's pedigree and it's final destination, along with handover. That amounts to less than a Euro a day, throughout the dog's working life span. A very small price to pay for your and your family's safety! And remember, unlike a bodyguard, your dog provides security 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. No vacations, no holidays,  and no eavesdropping, just non-stop love and loyalty.

Our Training 

Our rigorous training programme allows us to select only the best potential puppies. The final dogs that we deem ready to come to your home are both a loving, playful pet and a fearsome defender of your family's lives. A stable well balanced canine is what we strive for. 

 

Here is a list of commands your dog will obey:

  • Watch him: Upon command the dog will aggressively bark and growl towards any threat, person or animal, on and off leash. The dog will be at your left side whilst continuing to guarding you, until released. 

  • Vorhaus/Hold and bark: Upon command, the dog will sprint to the criminal/threat and aggressively jump and bark. The dog will attack on command or heel to your left on command.

  • Attack: Upon command or upon physical assault, your dog is trained to attack the threat or intruder. If the suspect has a weapon, he will attack the hand holding the weapon. If you are being attacked by more than one person, the dog will always go after the person directly assaulting you and switch aggressors if necessary.
