Questions about Personal Protection/Police Training
We have a ten week old GSD we are looking to get trained for level one protection (I realize that it different trainers call it different things). I was told some things that are making us rethink and I was wondering if anybody with trained police dogs or protection dogs could answer from experience.
Does the training change the dog's playful persona after this kind training? (ie. playfulness, fetch, etc..) I was told that they always seem to be "working" even if they are playing.
Did you have to keep your dog from socializing with men at all times after the training for an extended period of time? I was told we needed to crate her or put her in another room if a male figure other than family entered our house or property to keep the drive alive.
Also not spaying her until age 2-3 to ensure full maturity.
