Default Price range for protection classes?

I realize this is a hard question to answer but I was wondering if anyone knew what the price range was for protection training?

Depends on where you go, around here sessions for IPO training run about $25-30 with excellent trainers, this may not include tracking but should have an obedience and protection session. I would be very cautious wherever you decide.

No training is better than bad training.

If you can join a club it's usually cheaper - annual or monthly dues as opposed to paying per session, and usually multiple helpers and more than one training day a week.

To fully train a protection dog it will cost whatever you can afford to spend. Its Nov and I can, in 20 seconds of thinking, account for ~$20k in dog expenses for 2 dogs thus far this year... not including food & such.

I have to keep getting promotions in order to pay for my dog training addiction!

Definitely get with a club - so much more valuable - not just monetary value either.
