A family protection dog is far from the stereotypical guard dog. They are trained to protect their handler and family on command, and within specific threat scenarios. While it must be able to immediately transform from a companion to guardian, it also has to be able to revert to its previous state just as quickly, again on command. Its obedience levels must be immediate, and the dog should be happy to follow commands without aversion or question. We work with the new owners to perfect their dogs’ obedience, as we believe this not only aids a stress free relationship, but also builds a strong bond with the dog. This bond is particularly important in the line of protection work.

Many breeds excel as family protection dogs, but our experience shows that some are better than others. In our view, the Doberman, German Shepherd Dog, and Cane Corso tend to be the best. Other suitable breeds include the Rottweiler, Belgium Malinois, Giant Schnauzer, Boxer, and Great Dane. However, breed is only a small part of the selection process. A dog’s personal traits are far more important in allowing it to progress through our training programme, and a dog must also be able to fit its family’s lifestyle. It is always advisable to spend time with different breeds of dogs, as well as individual dogs to ensure that the fit is appropriate for all parties.

Protection training utilises a dog’s natural prey drive, and develops their focus on perpetrators rather than training aids and equipment. Scenario-based training is essential for the success of your family protection dogs, and we routinely utilise home environments to prove a dog’s behaviour before selling them to clients.


  • What is a protection dogs?

    A family protection dog is a dog that has been brought up with a family since it was a puppy. It has been fully trained to only react at command. They don’t make their own decisions, they know the difference from right and wrong and will protect the family when instructed to.

  • What are the best breeds of Protection dogs?

    There are many dogs people believe to be good protection dogs but only a dog that has been bred to work for a purpose will be the best. A few of the most popular breeds are German Shepherd, Doberman, Cane Corso, Great Danes, Rottweiler & Boxer. This is all down to each dog’s ability. Not all dogs have the ability or the strength to make a protection dog.

  • 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.

  • How to Train a German shepherd to be a Protection Dog?

    After selecting the right dog with the right genetics we nurture the dogs natural drive and instincts. Through repetition and proofing of behaviours we develop a well trained, confident canine.

  • Are all German shepherds protective?

    A German Shepherd when trained correctly make exceptional protection dogs utilising their exceptional protective abilities.

  • Should I buy a puppy to be my family protection dog?

    This is not necessarily the best idea. Trained protection dogs are an asset to keep your home and family safe, and any puppy – whether it is intended to be a family companion, or working dog – requires a significant investment in training. Protection Dogs Worldwide are happy and able to offer clients adult trained protection dogs raised and acclimatised to family environments, and this is likely a better option than purchasing a puppy.

  • Why are your dogs special?

    Protection Dogs Worldwide heavily invests in selecting young dogs that combine the right combination of friendliness, obedience, and of course a protective nature. While it should be a given that a protection dog will protect its owner, it must also be able to happily and comfortably live in a family environment. To this end, all of our dogs are remarkably friendly, and thrive when able to enjoy a meaningful relationship with their family and handler. We very much believe that before acting as any kind of security dog or protection dog, our dogs should first be enjoyed for being a dog, and we encourage our clients to take this approach as well.

  • How much exercise will my dog need?

    This completely varies from dog to dog, but a good rule to follow is that a busy dog is a happy dog. The breeds we sell tend to need more exercise than smaller companions such as a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, but not to an excessive extent. It is likely that a German Shepherd Dog would be kept happy with one walk in the morning, access to toys and dog puzzles during the day, and a longer walk in the evening. If your house has large grounds, then it is highly advisable to allow your dogs free access to them. Not only will this allow them to develop an attachment to the property they are protecting, but also exercise as and when they want.

  • Which dog is best for home security?

    We believe the answer to this question is simple; A dog that has been suitably trained not only to live as a family pet but also as a guardian, who will respond to any threat on command without question. A dog which is loyal, trustworthy, obedient and courageous whilst still remaining calm and level headed under pressure. We have a regular supply of high quality German Shepherds, Dobermann and Cane Corso but we don’t rest on these 3 breeds. Due to our own passion in training & supplying different breeds we have been successful in supplying elite trained family protection Great Danes, Presa Canario, Boxer, Rottweiler, Belgium Malinois, Dutch Herder and Giant Schnauzer.

  • What is a good guard dog for a family?

    This depends on what sort of family your providing to. If you’re looking for a dog that’s laid back then a Cane Corso would be perfect. If you want a more active and agile dog then a Doberman and German shepherd would be an apt choice.

  • What Protection dog will protect its owner?

    Any dog that is trained by us will protect its owner regardless of the breed.

  • Do German Shepherds make good family Protection Dogs?

    German Shepherds make excellent family protection dogs, for generations they have been used as working dogs in a security capacity. A well trained German shepherd knows and understands its job and undertakes its responsibilities with the upmost of care.

  • Are German shepherds good guard dogs?

    A German shepherd makes a natural guardian within its home, like with any dog however it is key to select the right dog with the correct drives and abilities.

  • Are your dogs safe around children?

    Absolutely! While any dog poses some risk of biting, this almost always results from a combination of being under-socialised, or feeling a need to protect itself. Protection Dogs Worldwide ensures that all of its dogs are fully exposed to children, and regularly trained with and by our handlers’ own family members. All dogs we sell also pass extensive temperament testing, and as a company, we refuse to see any dog that does not meet our rigorous standards of compatibility with children and family homes. We have also selected the breeds we believe are most suitable for family environments, and German Shepherd Dogs, Doberman Pinschers, Giant Schnauzers, and Cane Corsos are all well known for often forming strong bonds with children.

  • How are your dogs different from police or military working dogs?

    Protection Dogs Worldwide primarily trains and sells dogs intended for family environments. As such, they can, and most often thrive when allowed to behave as a normal pet would. Police or military working dogs are not intended to live in family environments, and as such tend to be significantly more aggressive, protective, and potentially even unsafe around children. It is for this reason that it is wise to ignore online adverts offering “ex police dogs for sale”, or “military dogs for sale”. Even if such claims are true, a dog sourced from a dealer such as Protection Dogs Worldwide will have a temperament proven to be suitable for family environments, so is likely a preferable option.
