personal protection dog titles

As far as I know there are no organizations/competitions specifically for Personal Protection Dogs...and consequently no titles. Sort of like a service dog...I don't think there is any universal way to label or certify a PPD. It just is. And the services it performs are usually tailored to the need of the individual that owns the dog.

There are protection titles avaliable in different working sport venues such as SchH, PSA, SDA, and the Ring Sports.

There are plenty of organizations that certify PPD "titles"....... you can buy the certificate paper at Office Depot.

To be more helpful, SDA does offer titles and I think many ppd types choose that over Schutzhund. There are also the ring sports.

P1-3 are SDA protection titles and PD1-2 are SDA police dog titles. Both sets of titles involve obedience and protection.

As others have said, there is no certification or title for a personal protection dog. There are many organizations, like SDA, that offer protection titles. A protection titled dog and a personal protection dog are two different things. Certainly there are dogs with the temperament and training for both, there are also dogs who do not have the temperament, much less the training, for both.

PSA is a sport but certainly worth trying.
