Personal Protection Dogs

Mountaineer K-9 Services trains personal protection dogs.  Crime is on the rise with break-ins happening on a daily basis.  Protection dogs are a great way to deter criminals from breaking in your home.  Gun control and strict laws make it difficult to protect yourself.  Once you fire a gun you can not take a bullet back.  Protection dogs have precision obedience and you will have complete control of the dog with a command word.  The dog will alert on command, bite on command and release on command. 

 MKS is very particular about the dogs that are trained for protection work.   We typically select the dog for the family dynamic.  Not every dog is suitable for this type of work.  Protection dogs are a huge responsibilty and should not be enter into lightly or unadvisedly. 

Extensive testing will need to be done.  The prey drive, hunt drive as well as a temperament test will need to be done.  It typically takes 3 to 5 months to completely train the dog.  Your family Protection Dog will be obedience trained on and off leash, your dog will alert, bite, and release on your command.
