Re: Buying a protection trained dog?
Our boy is trained in personal protection but not schH.
He is very freindly and mellow boy, hubby only turns him on when needed. He doesnt bite random people, he has been properly socialized and trained.. thousands of dollars in training in our dogs but to us its worth every penny.
I know you decided not to adopt but definately if the dog is trained in protection of any kind you would need to educate yourself on how to handle and on going traing for the dog. Training never ends.
I also agree that a protection dog may not be the best idea for a therapy dog.
