Selection and Training

This book describes the process of choosing and conditioning a dog that will be used as both a family pet and a protection dog. An initial program of training for house manners and obedience is used to establish control and lay the groundwork for the specific agitation work and protection training that is to follow.

The authors emphasize that the training of a personal protection dog should be done with the assistance of an experienced professional trainer.
