Question Need help Finding a Trainer

Hi! My puppy is 13 weeks and I want to know if she is suitable for protective training because my family really needs it. She loves playing fetch and will pull on her rope forever. But she gets scared of strangers and runs behind me ( she is getting a little better). I socialize her with people and other dogs as well. I live in Sacramento California. How much would it be to get her into some training and what should I do to prepare or get her started? Thanks!

Until you find a good trainer, continue to work calmly around her with strangers. Don't force them on her. I bet all these huge people want to pet the adorable puppy and they hover over her.

And in the meantime, when she finally gets her "big girl bark", that alone will help protect your family. A full chested bark can be quite a deterrent.
