We are living in an increasingly uncertain and even dangerous world. Years of austerity in the UK have resulted in overstretched and undermanned police forces with crime on the rise. Emboldened and empowered by technology, professional criminals are more motivated and consequently capable than ever. Hardware can fail or be beaten, whereas human-based security is only ever as strong as its weakest link. During a global pandemic, close protection and residential security are suddenly far less effective. With this as background, a trained family protection dog is the perfect investment for your family’s security.Unlike guard dogs, protection dogs always work through a handler and off specific commands rather than its own volition and without supervision. Most protection dogs
in the UK are currently oriented towards participating in sports such as Schutzhund. While potentially lucrative, such dogs are often too highly driven to live with and focus on equipment such as pads and sleeves rather than human threats. They are simply not practical investments for those seeking to secure their families, and rarely bridge the gap between guardian and family companion. In contrast to this, family protection dogs
are specifically trained and bred to meet these joint needs, and Protection Dogs Worldwide is the UK’s leading family protection dog trainer and dealer. All of our dogs are specifically selected while still young for the temperamental balance that will allow them to double up as family guardians and companions, and raised in a home environment. Between our trainers and kennel hands, we share decades of experience in developing outstanding protectors and companions, and supply these dogs across the UK, Europe, Middle East, and the Americas. The breeds we work with (primarily German Shepherd Dogs, Dobermanns, Giant Schnauzers, Cane Corsos, and now Rottweilers) are all highly intelligent, trainable, and affectionate. Their ability to form strong bonds and reliable temperaments mean they are safe around children. Their inherent playfulness makes them a delight to live with.If you would like to find out more about how a protection dog would be the perfect investment for your family’s security, we look forward to hearing from you. We would be more than happy to offer an initial obligation-free gratis consultation about how we can meet your needs, and all of our business is always conducted with the upmost discretion.

Why is the German Shepherd Favoured as a Police or Military Working Dog?
The German Shepherd Dog, otherwise known as GSD or Alsatian, is the favoured police and military working dog across the world. It has distinguished itself in both of these fields as well as personal and family protection, protection sports, search and rescue, and disability support. The German Shepherd Dog is a highly versatile and capable breed, and this reputation is well-deserved. One of the reasons why it is favoured as a police and military working dog is its high levels of intelligence. German Shepherd Dogs learn very quickly, and are one of the fastest breeds to train in specific tasks. The German Shepherd Dog thrives when it has a task to perform, especially one which taps into is natural instincts. As a highly driven breed, the German Shepherd Dog needs outlets for its remarkable energy levels to be satisfied, so will work hard and enjoy performing for its police or military handlers. German Shepherd Dogs also have a strong prey drive which means they enjoy chasing and biting things. Together with their size, this makes them a natural candidate for protection work. The German Shepherd Dog has excelled in this role across the world, and its reputation acts as a strong deterrent against would-be intruders or attackers. Their very strong bite force is also well-known, and most would rather surrender than attempt to outrun or outfight a trained German Shepherd Dog. German Shepherd Dogs are famous for the very strong bonds they form with their human handlers. Be it as a working dog or pet, German Shepherd Dogs are often known as a “Velcro breed” because of how close they like to stay with their humans. Combined with their intelligence, this strong capacity to bond makes them remarkably easy to train and work. In operational environments where dog and handler bonds are so important, this cannot be underestimated, and is a key reason why German Shepherds are favoured police and military working dogs.
