With a large number of companies offering a similar service to us, prospective clients often ask us why they should choose Protection Dogs Worldwide. The answer to this, we believe, is that PDW is simply the best company offering protection dog training and trained family protection dogs in the UK right now, as well as one of the best in the world. Our dedication, passion, and expertise speak for themselves with an outstanding and well-established track record of happy customers and clients across Europe, Africa, North America, and the Middle East.
Protection Dogs Worldwide is unique in that we take a family first approach to how we work and train. It is not uncommon for dealers to run their businesses by identifying the most commonly searched terms on Google, and tailoring their dog work to that. The sad reality is that building training and development around terms such as “attack dog training”, “guard dog training” and “police dog training” often creates a dog which is totally inappropriate for family settings. Unless dogs can be trusted around children, for example, then they are not suitable for family protection work.
We also focus on the individual dog more than the breed. We recognise that each dog is unique, and their personal characteristics are what will make them suitable for family protection work. Just because a dealer’s website offers “working dogs for sale” or “Rottweiler guard dog for sale” does not mean they will be suitable for your personal needs. Sociability, temperamental stability, and courage are all attributes we actively search for when assessing young dogs, and this is an area we simply do not compromise on.
With a large number of available trained family protection dogs, we are able to meet most clients’ security needs. We have a large number of satisfied customers around the world and look forward to helping you start you journey towards finding the ideal family protection dog.
Selling family protection dogs is our primary speciality, but we also offer a broad range of post-purchase training options and packages. These are available for the wider public, not just our clients or those with an interest in protection dog training. Our training is largely conducted at our East Yorkshire facility, but we are also able to travel to clients who have bought dogs from us if they would like to undertake continuity training in their own homes.
Before any of our training begins, we will always undertake a thorough assessment of your dog’s current needs and abilities. Following this, a discussion will be held about what you want to gain from this. For any meaningful training to begin, we must establish that your dog has a baseline of intelligence and potential. We will not promise unachievable results, and integrity underpins everything we do.
Subsequently, we can offer a range of options including basic and puppy obedience training, protection dog training, and more advanced enrichment. All of our private dog training is completely bespoke to you and your dog’s individual needs and circumstances. If you live locally to us, this can one-to-one, or longer and residential if you live further away.
Residential courses and boot camps are one of our increasingly popular packages. These allow you to leave your dog with us for consolidated training periods, thus helping us cover far more ground than one-on-one training sessions. The main benefit of such packages is that it allows training to be conducted frequently, but in bursts short enough to guarantee your dog’s attention. As these packages include kennelling, feeding, and daily walks, they are an excellent option for when you are planning a holiday of your own, or may have to travel with work. Clients often comment on how effective our obedience training has been when they see the amount their dog has learned in a short period of time!
These packages are suitable for all breeds, and need not only focus on protection dog training. We have recently started working on puppy obedience training, and are excited to help you give your young dog the best possible start to its life.

Serious dog attacks are very rare in the UK. According to research published in the British Medical Journal, only 0.6% of people who had been bitten by a dog required hospital admission.
Professionally-trained protection dogs are much less likely to bite someone or become unexpectedly aggressive in inappropriate circumstances.…
