What are personal protection dogs?

Personal protection dogs are specifically bred, raised and trained to be excellent companions and guardians. They must be social, stable and clear headed with the ability to switch into defense mode without any hesitation once their handler commands them to do so.

Full Contact K9’s protection dog training programs are created to not only unleash the potential of your dog, but to create a companion that will keep you and your family safe. Protection dogs can be used for various reasons but to have a dog perform like it should in stressful situations; there is no substitute to proper training and conditioning. We have the ability to offer private dog training or we also provide executive dogs for sale.

How are protection dogs trained?

The dog must first be a suitable candidate for protection training. Each dog receives foundation training, starting from the time they’re puppies. Foundation training is then built into a customized protection training program specific to the needs of each client’s lifestyle.

Are personal protection dogs dangerous?

A properly trained personal protection dog is a companion first and must be social. They are loyal and loving to their family. They are also highly trained to respond to intruders and threatening, real-life situations.

How much do fully trained protection dogs cost?

The price of trained protection dogs will vary depending on the level of training, the breed and gender.  The average price for a fully trained protection dog is $45,000.00

Our Program

Our training programs are designed to put the handler in control of every situation. Protection training is not merely teaching a dog how to bite.

There is a tremendous amount of conditioning, tactical training, and balance that goes into producing a strong and sound tempered K9. Our goal is to provide you and your family with a solid protection dog and loyal companion in one.

Full Contact K9 offers a full range of protection training. Our programs are frequently custom tailored to meet specific needs, which vary depending on the lifestyle and unique requirements of the individual client.
