shutzhund isn't the type of training you are looking for and you don't have the right kind of dog for the type of training you ARE looking for.no not just bite anybody. But protect the house when she is home and i am not on command. I guess shultzhund training is the better word for it.
I googled Maryland Dog trainers. Maybe this will help you.Thats what I was trying to find. I was wondering if anybody had any trainers that they now of that do this kind of training. I am in thurmont md. thank you for your info.
Ditto! An OEB is not a likely prospect for personal protection work. That's not to say your dog wouldn't excel at it, but even a popular Schutzhund breed (like Belgian Malinois) need to be evaluated for the proper temperament.In order to determine if your dog is a good candidate for this type of training, find a trainer certified in Personal Protection Training, get a professional evaluation and go from there.
The trainer may determine that your dog is not the right temperment for this type of training. But this way, you have a professional opinion, not a forum opinion.
Remind me not to accept any invitations to go on a boat ride with you Wvasko.Sometimes we don't always get what we want. What does the dog do now when strangers come around home. The reason I'm asking is that if I wanted a boat ride I would not use my Ford F-150 truck, I suppose I could use the truck but it's not going to be a long boat ride at all. I better be a good swimmer.
Now if this dog barks up a storm when strangers approach you have an alert dog. pair that with a shotgun and your wife will have all the protection she needs. Quite frankly give me a hand sledge and I will take out an attacking bulldog as they really are not built for the job you want. It's not like every dog you take to a trainer can be trained for attack work and that can be in any breed.
The first half of that statement is correct. The second half is totally wrong.but the question is is the dog the right kind of individual dog that WILL STOP attacking on command? is the dog one who can discriminate on who to attack?
I just want to try to it if she is no good at it. Then I can say I tryed. Check this out, this is why i know it is possible.
I also have a tom gardner dog. He has no problem defending him self but I take him with me some times. Like i said is it goting to hurt to try? If so why?
