Protection training is serious and precise work. It is imperative that the dog be controlled perfectly if we want a dog that can do the job required but is not dangerous. Only a trainer with extensive experience has the skills to do this job. Philippe has been a trainer for active service K9�s in Europe and the United States.
The Difference between sporting dog training and Protection Dog training
The sporting dog will always be trained to bite the suit. The protection dog will start training on the suit to teach him WHERE to bite. It is imperative that the dog work with a trainer in civilian clothes so that the dog will not focus on the suit as if it were a game, making him ineffective in natural situations.
Philippe has worked for Paris subway security, Charles De Gaulle airport and other dog security corporations in France where he saw many ways that assailants try to get past the security dogs. One man wrapped his arm in his jacked, waited for the dog to bite his arm, then stabbed him with the other hand.
This is why it is necessary to train dogs to attack on the leg or the torso. Further most sports require the dog to hold a consistent bite, while the protection dog continues to retarget to seek an advantage and inflict maximum damage to the assailant.
