ARE PROTECTION DOGS SAFE?
A well trained protection dog is much safer than a dog that has had no training. The reason for this is simply that every dog in the world can bite; just like every human can punch. In that regard, a trained dog knows right from wrong and what is allowed and not allowed. They understand that biting is only allowed when they are instructed to and letting go when instructed to. On the contrary, a dog that has not been trained doesn’t know what’s right or wrong, it only acts on impulse.
If a dog receives protection training from an efficient trainer – a protection dog is very safe.
