No one has more time-tested experience in the field of protection training than Mike Pinksten and his crew.
All dogs must first be evaluated before protection training can begin: we will only work with dogs who exhibit sound temperament and owners who commit to the time and training that this program involves.
Whereas traditional thinking advised waiting to commence protection training until the dog was over one year old and had extensive obedience training in place, our experience has taught us a different approach. We have found that the best results come from starting the dog at a younger age using methods and techniques geared toward the development of confidence and proper protective instinct.
A more comprehensive approach which incorporates both obedience and protection at a young age produces more lasting and reliable results when the dog reaches maturity.
Of course, we work with dogs of all ages, provided that they pass our pre-training evaluation.
