My wife and I live in a remote forested area in Southern Oregon and our nearest neighbor is over a mile away. About a year ago our home
was broken into, which made me wary about my wife walking alone in the woods, and her being at home alone when I am away on business trips.
So, we decided to look into getting a protection dog. We spent about a month calling and researching several protection dog
trainers and breeders around the U.S. We quickly became discouraged because it seemed that most everyone we came across was asking over $35,000 for a seriously trained dog, and we got the feeling that the trainers and breeders we spoke to had a “hard edge” in the way the
dogs (and customers) were treated. Luckily, we stumbled upon Ot Vitosha Malinois, and after one
conversation with Ivan, we knew that they were different. We learned that Ivan is a world champion Schutzhund competitor, and is
known for his gentle, almost human-like communication with the dogs he trains. After seeing the Malinois dogs he breeds, we were also very
happy to discover that they are sleeker and more beautiful than any other lines of Malinois we have seen (directly from Europe or
otherwise). We purchased a powerful, handsome dog from Ivan (his name is “Vidin”), and have had a wonderful experience. Vidin is a happy and loving dog that behaves beautifully everywhere — in town, in the woods, and inside the house. However, we also know that if the
situation were ever to arise where my wife or I were threatened by someone, Vidin would bravely and competently be able to protect us.
My wife and I can’t say enough about Ivan, and everyone at Ot Vitosha Malinois/Premier Protection Dogs. We wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone looking for world-class protection dogs.
