CCPD uses very unique and specific training methods. Unlike the traditional protection 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 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.
Equipment used to train our Protection 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.
