I'd echo Lisa's recommendation to check out the Indy SchH clubs if you want to learn more about this sort of training.
Ya I read it wrong. The seminar they have is 2-4 days long. Not the class

Here's the link if you want to check it out. Maybe to see if you think it's a good program?

RaigenB Thank you for listing those! Very interesting.

And with the professional, would that be the kind of training that you would attend with your dog? Just curious because I've heard of dogs being sent off to have the training done, and once they're back home, the dog is not the same. As in showing aggression to its owner and family.

I'm not even for sure if anyone around my area does that kind of training. I'll have to do some research

TrickyShepherd There's lots of them out there. Lots of different types.

Most popular protection sports here in the US at the moment:

Schutzhund (IPO) - 3 phase sport. Tracking, Obedience, Protection. United Schutzhund Clubs of America ? Schutzhund Training

Protection Sports Association (PSA) - Obedience and controlled protection work. Basically a civilian protection dog.
About PSA K9 | PSA K9

and of course the wonderful Wiki to list some of the others:
List of protection sports - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


To answer your question: For all of the those listed above- Lots and lots of professional training with the right dog (proper temperament, nerves, and drives). Obedience must be solid and remain top of the list for importance.

Have fun with your research!

Very Cool Sport!

Hello all. I'm new to the forum. I don't have a GSD, just doing my homework before making a decision

I never knew this was a sport! How cool! What is the actually name of it?

Is there a thread that can tell me about it? I'd love to read about how you get the dog to bite, and release on que. Very neat!
