Q&A on Protection Training - Pups 8 Weeks to 1 Year
How much will it cost to train my puppy?
Do you have a video specifically for the job of the handler in protection training?
I want a dog to protect me because I'm going to become homeless. What can I do to make a dog aggressive towards people?
My real question is what tug is the best for a smaller dog and are there any special training techniques for working such a small slow developing dog?
Which DVDs/courses should I watch to develop a good protection dog?
My family and I are looking at getting a German Shepherd. We want to do protection training, but have small children. What would you recommend for a beginner? An older dog or a puppy?
We have a very small female puppy and are working with her to encourage prey drive as a start for protection. What tug is the best for a smaller dog and are there any special training techniques for working such a small slow developing dog?
My working dog has started to typewrite on the arm, and has since develop dirty biting techniques because of previous poorly trained agitators. Any suggestions on how to re-train her to bite the sleeve correctly and hold?
My ex recently broke into my home. If he comes back, I want my dog to react like she does to strangers. Is this possible?
Do you think you will ever make a DVD that helps you introduce the 'Ellis Method' to an already trained adult dog?
I want to become a helper. Can you give me some advice?
Now that we've progressed in training, my dog seems to have too much drive and can't focus when working on obedience. Should I be working on capping his drive?
My question is how to get my dog to refocus so he will be ready to bite the sleeve?
I'd like to train my male Doberman but he does not seem to have a lot of confidence or a strong defensive drive. Anything we can do?
Which videos would you recommend for me start a good foundation first?
I have been working my dog through the The First Steps to Bite Training. How do I bring the excitement back and do I need to try another kind of material?
I understand that one can't each his own dog to be a protection dog. I found someone to help - does this sound reasonable to you?
I have a 9-month-old GSD that doesn't bark. I've tried to get her to bark but she just whines. Have you experienced this before and have any idea?
I would like to understand what are the differences in the way an e-collar is used for pet owners as opposed to owners training their dog for protection work?
What do you expect from a good (working) puppy to show you before you treat him as a mature dog and not as a puppy?
