Q. Does all that training train into aggression when being an adult? I mean, does the dog learn with the target for personal protection as a threat not just a sleeve overtime?
I have watched Teaching Protection Skills without a Decoy and it is very impressive, but I have a question. Does all that training train into aggression when being an adult? I mean, does the dog learn with the target for personal protection as a threat not just a sleeve overtime? I'm a big fan :)

A. You have to eventually work with a SKILLED decoy if you wish to bring aggression to the work. The scope of the video you just watched is simply to teach some of the mechanics the dog will need when you don’t have access to the decoy. A dog should never be taught aggression or defense with the handler, it should always come from a decoy.

If you are interested in personal protection, I’d recommend:

Training Defense is the most misunderstood area of protection dog training. This is evident by going to any Schutzhund trial or looking at half of the Police Service dogs in this country. This training video is intended to help new (and old) trainers. Many experienced trainers get caught up in traditional sport dog training, which is weak in the defensive areas of training. This video will help all trainers recognize and get a dog started in the training of its defensive drive. The goal of the training is to bring a young dog further along in its fight drive development.

This tape provides the information needed to convert a Schutzhund dog or a dog with basic bite training into a Personal Protection Dog.
