Protection Dogs Are Perhaps the Most Effective Form of Personal Security


Let's not kid ourselves. In many communities, crime is on the rise. It's sad and unfortunate, but the best way to deal with such situations is to be open and honest with yourself from the get go. There are many things you can do to secure your home and property and to ensure the safety of your family. You could install a security system, or if you feel it's necessary, you could even buy a personal firearm. The most effective and safest choice, however, might be protection dogs.

For thousands of years, dogs have been man's best friend, and also our closest guardian. Thousands of years ago, dogs protected villages from wild animals, such as bears. Dogs are, in fact, highly domesticated and evolved wolves. While many of the “wild” traits of dogs have long been bred out, they still maintain an ability to be great protection dogs.

Many breeds of dogs, such as German shepherds, are naturally good guard dogs. With a bit of extra training, however, these dogs can be transformed into world-class bodyguards who will know what to look for and how to react in case of an intrusion. As Brad Croft of Universal K9 says, “Well trained protection dogs are more effective at providing security than just about any alarm or personal firearm.”

Unlike humans, protection dogs can still see and also rely on their sense of smell at night. How many times have you read or heard about a parent shooting his or her child at night by accident all because he or she thought the child was an intruder? A trained guard dog, however, will have no trouble distinguishing intruders from family.

A trained guard dog will be taught what to look and listen for, and how to disarm and disable any intruders. The dog will also be taught to obey its master and to always protect and never harm its family. Your dog will become a proverbial “Super Dog”, capable of keeping your family safe, while still enjoying a game of fetch in the yard.

Best of all, dogs deter most intruders. Few criminals will risk breaking in if they know that the home is guarded by a dog. Your guard dog will be taught to bark first, bite second. In addition, a few deep barks from “Fido” are usually enough to send most criminals scurrying.
