CC Protection Dog Training Method
Protection Training as a Duty, Not a Game
CC Protection Dogs uses very unique and specific training methods. Unlike the traditional dog training methods used by our competitors, which is to train a dog using protection as a game, our dogs are trained in defensive protection techniques from a very young age. You do not consider your personal safety, or that of your family as a game, nor should your protection dog. This is why we never use a towel, tug or sleeve when starting our puppies in bite development. Our dogs are trained to defend for the right reasons, much like a human bodyguard. From a young age our dogs are trained to recognize behavior that could be threatening to the person or family they are protecting and will defend them on command with strength and courage.
Custom Dog Training Equipment
Equipment used to train our Executive dogs is designed and manufactured for our specific needs. We never use shock collars – (E collars). All of our dogs are trained using humane measures which build the ego of the dog instead of breaking the dog’s spirit. Only confident dogs are suited for this type of demanding work and cruelty breaks their confidence and trust. We do not use food as a reward. The only reward your dog needs to protect is the knowledge he is fulfilling his duty to your family. Our dogs are motivated by the strong, natural desire to please their handlers. As the owner, you in turn show your appreciation by providing a loving, stable environment for your protection dog. Food or toy rewards are not needed as the relationship between your family and the dog is mutually beneficial.
Our puppies start their education with a solid foundation. Our Executive dog training methods begin with socializing, starting at 5 weeks of age. The most important time for a puppy is between 5 to 8 weeks. At 5 weeks, the puppy begins to walk with structure and is exposed to different environments and surfaces. They are taken everywhere, exposing them to the real world. The puppies are introduced early on to children and other animals, both domestic and livestock, so they transition into your home effortlessly.
At CC Protection Dogs, we believe simulating some conditions found in nature reduces anxiety and therefore starts each and every puppy with a solid mental foundation.
