All Dogs that have completed my Premier Protection Dog course, have proven time after time to be 100% safe with the family. While they are easy to handle, at the same time they’re the most reliable protection when needed. I usually have only limited dogs per year that pass all of the selection, tests, and specialized training necessary to become Premier Protection Dogs.
I do not divide my dogs into different levels, or use terms as executive, elite, estate, etc. I sell only one type of dog – Premier Protection Dog. I divide the dogs in ONLY two categories – Excellent in temperament and Training and the second type are that are … Not. I will not try to sell you a dog that is not suitable for protection for 10,000$ or 15,000$ and come up with a silly name for “not suitable”. I don’t travel around the world searching and begging to buy someone’s sport dog and then try to transition its training into protection dog. I do buy dogs from dog dealers in Europe because none of these dogs have ever met my standarts. My trips are striclty to give seminars and workshops on Protection Dog Training. So if I am bringing a dog back with me was NOT trough a Dog Dealer and it was not really for sale. My dogs are the only dogs in the industry that are specifically Bred, Selected, Raised and Trained from puppies on to become Premier Protection Dogs and to understand Security Treat Levels.

The Protection dog training is not simply teaching a dog to bite! There is huge tactical aspect that most dog trainers and companies are not aware of. Should you send your dog to bite, or should your dog wait for the intruder to come close? Should the dog bite on command only, or make desicions on its own? Understanding the benefits of offensive and defensive training and when to apply which … Should your dog constantly be at “high” Security threat level and what does this mean? My Premier Protection Dogs are thought to maintain levels from Low to High matching the present demands of your life! I will personally teach you how to use your dog in the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones
