Advanced Protection Commands:

Progressive Canines specializes in teaching advanced protection commands that empower your dog to act as a reliable guardian. Our training programs cover essential commands such as "bark," "hold," and "release," enabling your dog to discern threats and respond appropriately. Through positive reinforcement techniques, we cultivate a strong sense of responsibility and discernment in your canine companion.

Temperament Evaluation and Selection:

Effective personal protection starts with selecting dogs with the right temperament. Progressive Canines conducts thorough temperament evaluations to identify candidates with the appropriate blend of courage, intelligence, and stability. This careful selection process ensures that our training programs are built upon a solid foundation, maximizing the potential of your dog as a reliable protector.

Realistic Scenario Simulations:

Personal protection requires readiness for real-life situations. Progressive Canines incorporates realistic scenario simulations into our training, exposing your dog to a variety of situations they may encounter as protectors. From controlled intrusions to handling unexpected challenges, our training ensures your dog is prepared to assess and respond effectively in different scenarios.

Owner Involvement and Ongoing Support:

Personal protection training is a collaborative effort between our trainers and the dog owner. Progressive Canines actively involves owners in the training process, providing guidance on reinforcing protection commands and maintaining a strong bond with their protector. Our commitment extends beyond training sessions, with ongoing support to ensure a harmonious relationship between you and your vigilant canine companion.

Personal Protection Training at Progressive Canines is a highly specialized program that equips dogs with advanced skills to protect their owners. This intensive training focuses on specific techniques that allow the dogs to respond effectively to potential threats and provide personal protection when needed.In this training, dogs are taught to respond to a command to “bite” on cue and then “out” or release their bite when commanded. This skill is crucial in personal protection scenarios, as it allows the dog to apprehend a potential threat while also having the ability to disengage on command. The “guard” command enables the dog to maintain a protective stance, deterring the aggressor and creating a safe space for their owner.This training involves teaching dogs to perform directional attacks, biting only the person whom the handler points to or identifies as the threat. 

This level of precision is vital in situations where the aggressor needs to be neutralized while minimizing collateral damage. The “call off” command is equally important, as it allows the dog to disengage from the attack when the threat has been controlled or eliminated.Personal Protection Training at Progressive Canines is conducted under the supervision of experienced trainers who employ positive reinforcement methods while ensuring safety and effectiveness. The training progresses gradually, starting with foundational obedience training to build a strong bond and trust between the dog and their handler.As the dogs progress through the program, they are exposed to various scenarios, teaching them to respond swiftly and decisively in real-life situations. The training sessions are structured to develop the dogs’ confidence, intelligence, and ability to assess threats accurately.

It is important to note that Personal Protection Training requires a high level of dedication and commitment from both the dog and the owner. These techniques are intended to be used responsibly and only in situations where personal safety is at risk.At Progressive Canines, we prioritize the safety and well-being of both the dogs and their owners during Personal Protection Training. Our goal is to create confident and capable protectors, providing peace of mind to their owners and a strong deterrent to potential threats.
