Revealing Root Elements In Dog Training Northern Virginia

October 18, 2013

I was recently in a cultural setting where I was asked about my dog, Rocco. Rocco is my Rottweiler who has undergone extensive protection Dog Training Northern Virginia. We were engrossed in a discussion about his training and capabilities whenever we were overheard by another person.

“Oh, you shouldn’t train your pet to achieve that stuff. Which makes them vicious,” was her statement injected into our conversation. I was basically a bit taken-aback and annoyed; not just was her comment unsolicited but it was predicated on too little knowledge. As I seriously considered it more, however, I came to understand that this is a common design of thinking. There are lots of misconceptions about protection dogs and protection dog training. Let me dispel some of the myths of protection dogs and discuss protection dog training at its root to combat a few of the more prevalent misinformation.

First, allow me to do a little bit of defining. There are lots of terms thrown around that are often interchanged incorrectly.

Attack Dog- A poorly trained, typically anti-social, and fearful creature. Ineffective aside from looking tough.

Guard Dog- Your pet dog that is trained to guard an area. Guard dogs are often used on estates, warehouses, or open areas that need guarding. Guard dogs may or might not be good with people and may or may not need obedience training.

Police Patrol Dog- Your pet dog that is trained to work chasing down criminals. They are trained to be utilized on the offensive.
