Michael Ellis' Theory on the Foundation
of Protection Training Dogs

Video on Demand

21 Day Rental

This is an 88 minute lecture by Michael Ellis on the foundation of protection training. Michael talks about training from puppy hood through adolescence. He discusses thresholds and drives in dogs and how each dog has to have its own training plan.

Michael explains that certain training techniques (IE the hold and carry) were designed for a very specific type of dog and how these techniques should not be used on a dog with a different temperament.

Michael explains why he trains dogs for all the various biting sports and disciplines (IE police service work) exactly the same from puppy hood through early teenage months. He explains how he wants the dog to have multiple ways of coping with the stress that a decoy brings to the training.

Michael explains why it is important to get all dogs used to different type of biting surfaces and decoy styles. He explains why he wants his dogs to feel comfortable in biting more than one place on the decoys body.

Michael explains how a decoy must become a good actor. He talks about the various ways the decoy can add stress to the training and when to do it.

There is a section in the lecture where Michael goes into detail on when he adds aggression into the training.

Unless you have been to Michael's two week course at his school in California on protection training I am sure you have not heard anyone explain the foundation of protection work like you will here in this lecture.
