Looking for some help/suggestions
I'll explain my situation and let the chips fall where they may. I work from home. I do gun repair from my house. So everyone that comes through the door has a gun and with the drug situation as it is here in western Pa I am worried about being robbed sooner or later. Several of the law enforcement officers that come here can't believe I haven't been already. Rural setting.
Here is what I have to work with. My dog is 16 months, her parents are retired Boston Police dogs, according to the breeder. I am not sure how to find out if she was totally honest on that or not. I have had the dog evaluated and the trainer seems to think she will be good for a protection dog. She did pull back but growled barked and foamed at the mouth. Now I like this trainer but she is slow about everything, when I call it takes 2 months or more till she gets back to me.
Here is what I would like to accomplish with the dog. I really don't know that a protection dog is what I want or need. I would just like her to stop anyone from entering the family area of my house if I get broken into. Store/shop is in basement. What type of training do I need to look into? Thanks, Alan
