A family protection dog is a valued member within any home and the ultimate security system. The dog should be friendly, loyal, courageous with a clear mindset. Selecting the right genetics is essential to selecting the right dog which can excel on our programme and thats where the journey starts at Protection Dogs Worldwide.

Protection dogs or family protection dogs are beyond the stereotypical guard dog or home security dog. They are trained protection dogs that respond on command and within specific threat scenarios. As quickly as the family guardian jumps into action it should also revert to being passive on request from its owner. The obedience level should be immediate and responsive, the dog should be happy to obey without aversion or question. We work with the new owners to perfect the dogs obedience as we believe this not only aids a stress free relationship but also builds a strong bond with the dog and this bond shines through in the protection elements of the dogs work.

Many breeds make exceptional family protection dogs but our experience shows that certain breeds excel in this role, Dobermann, German Shepherd and Cane Corso. Other breeds to consider; Rottweiler, Belgium Malinois , Giant Schnauzer, Boxer and Great Dane. The breed however is only a small part in the selection process, the dog must have the correct traits to progress through our training programme and the dog must fit into its new family lifestyle. It is always advisable to spend time with different breeds of dogs, this helps both parties choose the right dog for each family.

The protection training utilises the natural drive of the dogs and develops them to focus on the perpetrators and not equipment. Scenario based training is essential for the success of your family guard dog, we utilise a home environment to proof the dogs behaviour before putting the dog into action in your own home.


  • 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.
