"attack" training

Just for my own curiosity (not interested in this type of training) but how does it work?

The dog gets trained so that if the owner instructs the dog to attack, it attacks. But ONLY the owner's instruction.

Or if anyone says it, the dog will react?

No, the dog shouldn't react.

What do you mean by attack training? Personal protection? Schutzhund?

My significant other and I debated about this. Protection is unregulated and different training across the board with no standard. Shutz is a competion slash sport which is great bonding between you and your gsd where protection (in our case) would required 4months boot camped like training where the trainer have free range to do anything. In either case, be careful bc now you will have a loaded dog that in a any situation can be dangers bc you would truly have a dangerous animal. I say this because I know a guy who takes his gsd and shows him off and saying he is trained in protection to everyone and one day he hurt another owners dog and thehandler during the scuffle. Well, to say it simple it ended in court and bc he had a trained protection dog it was his neglengence that he knew he had a dangerous gsd and didn't take full measure to insure this would not happen. Just like have those beware of dog signs vs dog on property.

I'm not familiar with how protection training is done, but I've heard that it can be trained as a game for the dog rather than teaching him to be truly aggressive. So that the bite and hold on the attacker's arm is kind of like a tug game for the dog, and the dog must have a solid obedience to start and stop on command. Maybe someone else can confirm this?

Yes true to a point.
Some dogs bite "for real" and some dogs bite because it's a game

And for some dogs it starts as a game and is later translated into real bites, either by sport or by temperament.

I would consider any dog a "loaded gun". If a dog has bad nerves, it may bite. My girl does stellar protection work in schutzhund, but she would never bite somebody in the real world. She is certainly not dangerous to take around to new people - she LOVES people.

Yep well-said
My male used to bite for fun, but he isn't playing around anymore and bites seriously. Trying to catch my female up to him now. She still likes her flirt pole and thinks the sleeve is boring

How about a new person wearing a sleeve? Heh! Heh! Just kidding!
