Thread: Sending Dog Away for Training

  1. #1

    Default Sending Dog Away for Training

    I'm currently considering sending our dog away to be obedience trained and possibly protection trained.

    Guard Dog Training | Obedience Training | Boarding Kennels | Dogs for Sale

    These guys look as though they definitely know what they are talking about but was keen to hear from others who have done protection training and whether the dog was still as loving in a family with small kids

    Our "guard dogs" in the past would bark but only continue to bark once someone had entered the property or if you acted friendly enough would begin to play.

    Anyone had any experience with these guys or any similar training

    Sending a dog away is not really a good option. Dogs are not robots who get programmed by one person and then sent to another to serve. You need and should build a relationship with your dog and work with him yourself (with guidance of someone who knows how). Your dog can be perfect in hands of some handler that will teach him things, but not necessary (or not for long) good with you afterwards. Whoever tells you differently is lying or wants to take your $$$
    Respect and you shall be respected. Animal is always right.

    Any word from people who have used these guys or similar .... Dog will spend 12 months with family before going for 3 weeks training

    I so agree...............
    Anything they can train so can you with the right information, persistance & pataince & I reccomend having a trainer follow your progress to pick up on what you may be doing wrong.
    I can have a dog working brillent for me & then the owner takes it back & it's all out the window if the dog dose not respect the owner or if the training is ot followed up on......................

    I have no idea why anyone would want to have train their dog to guard.
    You do know if your dog actually hurts anyone, an intruder or not, YOU will be the one responsible, and the dog will probably be pts.

    I heard this story of a guy that was robbing a house, and hurt himself on a knife. The robber then sued...and won.

    If a dog can protect kids playing in a yard and prevent a possible abduction in this perfect world we live in, isn't guard training money well spent

    Duty of care is a funny thing in law, it's there to look after the idiots of the world.

    I'm after protection without having to hire a security guard 24/7 so to say

    Anyone here have experience with guard dog training would like to hear your opinion of guard dog living in family home please

    Is it possible

    Yes it's possible but the owner really has to know what they are doing & the dog must be of stable temperment.
    We have farm guardains but they are not our only sercurity & they are not so much to bite an indruder but to be a deterrent & if needed to bail bark & wait for us(& it dose not always work that way) but we have found for every 20 dogs only 1 is stable enough for this sort of work.
    You would be very lucky in my opinion if your pet dogs is of the personality or has the drive for the sort of training your talking about. Nothing against your dog in any way just that I know it's more likely he isn't suitable than it is that he'll become what your after.
    Also I am of the beleive that there are very few capable trainers out there for protection work & really you must be trained as much as the dog dose.
    Having said all this I just want to say imho it's wrong to train dogs to attack a person in todays age but as a deterent is different.

    The kind of dog that they'd train to guard - would also eat the kid playing in the back yard. Have you head of table training? It is possible to mess with a dog in the worst way without using any "harsh methods".

    Sending a dog away for training without training you is also pointless as you will not know how to maintain the training.

    I would ask Steve Courtney - post a topic in here
    K9Pro Dog Training and Behaviour - Australian Purebred & Crossbreed Dog Forum

    or phone him.

    I suspect training a dog to attack people at all - unless you are a law enforcement officer on duty - is against the law. Your dog would be declared dangerous and you would be banned from owning dogs.
