ATTN Hampton Roadesians: Question about protection training

Hopefully I am not placing this question/thread in the wrong category. My apologies to the ops if this is the case.

My question is directed to anyone in Hampton Roads, VA. Have you had had your GSD trained fr protection? If so, do you have any advise on trainers (please im me if there is an issue). My wife and I are looking to have our GSD protection trained. We want to be able to use someone that is reputable and proven. Any information would be greatly apprciated.

Thanks in advance,

John

I'm going to try to move this into the Sch/PPD section so you may get more answers.

Having a trained Protection dog or Schutzund dog takes TONS AND TONS of our time as owners. Cause we have to learn to do the training so our dog is what we want and not a liability that can't be trusted and ends up locked in a yard/kennel it's entire life. And since my family and everything I care about is IN my house, that's not what I want (protection in an outdoor kennel?) unless I'm willing to put the tons of time and weekly training in to do it right.

Frankly, a calm, socialized, obedience trained GSD is all the vast majority of us need. This is much more manageable for our lives. And all the family, friends, neighbors know that you have a dog that will allow them in the house.

But the mass murderers, rapists and burglars only know you have a BIG SCARY GSD in the house that is barking at them, and or staring at them, and they don't know when it will be going for their throat!
