Bite Training Products
At our dog training center in Arizona, we do whatever from personal defense pets (bite canines), drug canines, basic/advanced obedience, and behavioral concerns. Naturally, individuals see our various videos on YouTube of our experienced pet dogs doing bite work and they call us or email us because they desire their pet dog to do it!
Here’s the issue, everybody assumes since they have a German Shepherd, Doberman, Pit Bull, Rottweiler Cane Corso (etc) that they can be an incredible personal defense pet. This could actually not be even more from the truth. We train 65 dogs each week at our center, and out of a whole month, we may see ONE pet who can perform this task.
The chances of you getting a (insert almost any breed here) German Shepherd from a regular rescue, breeder, or shelter and that dog having the ability to be a personal protection trained pet dog is most likely about 2% (a basic guess, not statistical-based).
What individuals do not realize is places that use individual defense or police pet dogs, get them from breeders who breed particularly for that. Even when they breed particular for that, maybe only half of the litter has what it requires incredible at this kind of work. Your chances of getting a pet from a regular breeder/shelter and that canine be able to do this type of work are VERY slim.
I have to tell individuals every single day that the canine they bought for household protection and have to spend the next 14 years of their life with will Never ever carry out the job that they intended it to do. So, do your research study and check out the blog site below to ensure you are getting the RIGHT pet dog for what you desire.
A misconception about individual security dogs is that they need to be aggressive, this isn’t true whatsoever. I and my trainers all have bite-trained dogs and they like individuals, love kids, love other animals, and so on. They need to be extremely steady pet dogs that can understand when to bite (on command) and know when to be a terrific household companion, too!
About 98% of pet dogs (unless specifically trained to do so) will look to you for comfort and assistance in a threatening situation. Sorry to dissatisfy you, however much better that you know the fact verse have a false sense of security.
It takes a lot of work, training, scenarios, and discipline to recover rounded, friendly, and mingled canines to bite people; for that reason, it’s irregular for a dog TO bite somebody.
Individual defense pets have to have actually set characteristics that are normally just discovered in pets when they are bred to have these characteristics: high self-confidence, very HIGH prey drive, high energy, good nerves, etc.
You can check out how you can choose the perfect canine in my blog on “How To Choose A Canine From The Litter.”
Know that if you are wanting a personal protection pet, you need to be prepared to invest a lot of time, training, situations, pack obedience, self-confidence, and management training with this pet.
Ensure you do a lot of research study, speak to a qualified fitness instructor, a great breeder, and ensure you do a lot of research on the topic prior to making this 15-year commitment. Again, a lot of high-drive working pets ARE NOT a great fit for about 90% of people. I usually fast to tell people that they do not NEED personal protection, get an alarm and a gun for the house instead.
