Dear Perry, I wanted to take this time and relate to your customers or future clients how satisfied I am with my CCPD puppy named ‘Indy”. He is now 6 months old and has exceeded my every expectation. He is social and friendly, yet always alert and protective when he needs to be. This can only be achieved by proper breeding, selection and genetics done over years by a professional. I want anybody interested to know that I conducted in-depth searches and background checks on multiple GSD breeders and protection dog vendors before settling on you. I have found your credentials to be impeccable. When I explained to you, that due to my line of work I required a dog that would ensure my family and home were safe when I got home at night, you did not disappoint. As a law enforcement officer for over a decade I have worked with police dogs often and have first hand experience with what a “sporting dog” is versus a “protection dog”. It is clear you also know the difference. IMO “sporting dogs” are little more than a dog trained to “retrieve”. Protection dogs are family protectors that know when to react based on their genetics and enhanced by professional trainers such as yourself. In my experience as an LEO, I have found your type of dogs as the most effective deterrent, to one becoming a crime victim statistic. A protection dog to me is a far better choice than a firearm for home security. I feel puppies of this caliber will do best in the hands of experienced GSD owners or trainers, that have the patience, love and knowledge to raise and extract the outstanding qualities breed into your pups. Those who don’t have the time to work with a puppy should strongly consider one of your trained companions.
Hi Perry, Hope you like the photos. The full body shot was when she was 4 months old. The “tooth” shot is just funny, her tooth doesn’t really look like that, her bite is very good. I didn’t tell you at the time, but she is the first pup I’ve ever bought in 22 years, the only one sight unseen, and I couldn’t be happier, just love her! Talk soon.
Perry, just wanted to take a moment and thank you and James again for your time. Liz and I are very impressed with your passion for the dogs. We are equally impressed with the amount of skill Max has at such an early age. Can’t wait to see the finish product. Again thank you.
Perry, Just a quick note to let you know how much we love Rival! He transitioned into our family with perfect ease. He is well mannered, confident and extremely loving to our young boys. Our veterinarian commented on him, saying that she has never seen a German Shepherd with such a fantastic demeanor. We have only had Rival for 3 months, but the bond we’ve developed with him is hard to explain. Simply put, we love this dog! Our thanks extend to you, James and Julia for your time and effort in the process of picking and taking possession of this dog. I’ve included a picture: Rival meets our young son at the bus stop everyday and gladly carries his backpack home! Our boys think that he is the most amazing dog in the world!
Perry, I just wanted to let you know that Yska is now (6 years old). She is happy and healthy. We all love her and she has been an outstanding dog in every possible way. Thank you so much!
This is a video from our most recent delivery. After a 24 hour drive we finally made it to Minnesota to deliver Zina. Zina, daughter of Britt is a German Shepherd that we had bred Zina acclimated very well in such a very busy household with five children and two other dogs. Zina was everything that our client had expected. It is a deliveries like this one that make my job so rewarding, and to know that if you call upon her to do her job Zina will protect her family hundred percent as a true Protection Dog.
Hey Perry, Spanky (Belgian Malinois) has worked out better than I thought. He and my daughter are great together. They go on walks, bike rides, you name it. I travel quite a bit. He now has triple nationalities! He has also given my family a little peace of mind knowing that he is with me when I am out of the country. Finally, I have a busy house hold as you know. He now knows who belongs and who does not. If a invited person he doesn’t know comes in the house and calls his name. He looks away with attitude of until dad says your ok. I don’t want know you and you don’t want to know me. He also is very loving, protective and observant. It is hard not to melt with those puppy dog eyes, but I maintain the Canine Control. He is obedient and responsive to commands in a snap!
Perry, This is a recent picture of Jessy and my two sons. We have had her for almost seven months now and I can’t imagine the family without her. Thank You!
Dear Perry, I am writing to let you know how pleased we are with Cobra. What an amazing dog! We’ve never seen anything like him. Everything you told us would happen has come to be. Cobra has quickly become a very loved and treasured family member. My kids play with him and love on him everyday. I can’t believe how gentle and patient he is with them. He loves their company and considers them part of his pack. As you said, he also will not leave my wife’s side. He goes everywhere with her and at home, he is constantly at her feet. I’m beginning to wonder if I’ve been replaced! He sleeps beside her and always keeps an eye on where she is in the home. He is great with me and sees me as the alpha. He loves and obeys me, but there’s no denying this is my wife’s dog! He has also continued to get more and more protective as time goes on. He is extremely smart. As you know, our gate buzzes when someone is there. The beautiful German Sheperd instantly goes on alert and will bark to alert us when anything or anyone is around that is not normal. He is extremely watchful when we have other people around. I have no doubt that Cobra would protect us at all costs should that need every arise. Thank you so much for Cobra! I can’t say enough about what a great dog this is. Thanks again to you and CCPD for providing every aspect of service and commitment both before and after the sale. I would recommend your service to anyone in need of this kind of a good Protection Dog.
Dear Perry, This letter is long overdue! We wanted to let you know how happy we are with Boy! He has been with us for 9 months now and we can’t imagine not having him as part of our family! The comfort of knowing the protection Boy provides as well as the companionship is priceless! He is loving and affectionate and welcomes our guests, yet shows caution among strangers. Thank You again for your professionalism in providing us with excellent service through the research and education process and ultimately in finding the perfect fit for our family in Boy ! I’d like to share a couple of pictures with you including a photo taken when our protection dog Boy joined our son’s 3rd grade class at school. (As you can see he has blended in quite well with our family!)
Our family interviewed other protection dog trainers before speaking with Perry. We were most impressed by Perry’s philosophy. The references that Perry provided were glowing in response to Perry’s training ability and the dogs themselves. Our family desired a companion dog with special protection capabilities. We have five children between the ages of 8 and 7 months and so we have a busy household. Our new family companion fits right in: She is wonderful with the children, extremely disciplined and obedient. We have no doubt that if her protection skills were ever required that she will faithfully protect our family. In our view, Perry has an excellent training regimen which he utilizes with superior dogs. The outcome is wonderful
I suspect that each person’s motivation to have a dog differs. For some people, a dog represents protection or a good four legged companion or a combination of both. In my case I needed the combination of a loyal companion who was able to sense AND react to danger. In addition I needed a mentally strong and trained dog who could accomplish this purpose. I undertook the task to actively research breeders who could fulfill my requirements for a four legged addition to the family and discovered Perry Ahlgrimm, President and CEO of Command Control Protection Dogs (CCPD). After a long and exhausting evaluation process , I became the proud owner of Santo in September 2010. Santo is an extremely ‘handsome’ , adorable and highly intelligent 2 year old German Shepherd who was able to fit comfortably within my family and lifestyle within a day of introduction. He is a fun dog with a pleasing disposition and physically active –( loves long hikes) , protective of the home and EXTREMELY well trained and behaved. I will admit that in hindsight this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am completely happy with the purchase especially because it appears that the training techniques are superior and work.
When I first offered to provide Perry with a testimonial for CCPD I never thought it would be so hard to articulate into words the experience of owning one of his dogs. I have owned many dogs over the course of my life and would consider myself an experienced dog owner. But none of those experiences prepared me for the ownership of such a special dog. I first inquired about a dog for my family as I travel a great deal and am always concerned about my family’s safety while away. After my initial contact with Perry, he recommended Heidi for my needs. I was somewhat apprehensive because of the financial commitment but opted to give CCPD a chance. Upon the very early stages of delivery it was apparent that there was something special about Heidi that put her on another level than other dogs. She was extremely well behaved: Almost to the point that I thought it was odd. But over the course of the two-day delivery process, that I was extremely happy with and think is a crucial part of the experience with CCPD, I saw Perry’s method of firm but fair handling. Heidi wants to obey us because she wants to make us happy and no treats or incentives or gimmicks are needed – just verbal praise!! I should also interject that I have two small children, 1 and 2 years of age. I was obviously concerned about have a trained personal protection dog with two toddlers in the house. Upon asking Perry about this, he said that it would be no problem. I was of course skeptical but my children and Heidi became fast friends and it is a tremendous feeling to see a dog with Heidi’s level of training bond with my children and to know that she would tolerate no harm or aggressiveness towards them by anyone. My wife,who was an avid runner with a chariot running stroller, had Perry train Heidi to run in step with her beside the stroller within minutes. For anyone who might think this is too good to be true, I agree that it appears that it is!! But it is also the facts. If by chance my above praise of Perry and CCPD was not enough to convince you how amazing the dogs and experience was, I would also like to explain that I was so enthralled by Heidi upon delivery that I bought another CCPD dog Chico on the second day Perry was at my home. I can honestly say that I cannot imagine purchasing another dog that I did not get from Perry. I am such a strong believer in CCPD that if you would like to speak to me about acquiring a dog from Perry please contact him and he will gladly forward my email or phone number and I can further share the amazing experience of owning a CCPD dog. This was by far the best money that I have ever spent on anything. For the abundance of things that I receive – safety and security for my family, peace of mind and a loving bond – these things are truly priceless!
Perry, Just wanted to drop you a note of sincere thanks for placing YaYa (Belgian Malinois) with my parents- They sound immensely happy and so much better. I know YaYa will have a wonderful home with them, and will give my folks great peace of mind.
Perry, It’s been 2.5 years since Ebo joined our family. He is a wonderful dog and true companion. Ebo is not only confident in his duties, but also playful with our children and our 4 other dogs. I personally take great comfort knowing Ebo is protecting my family. Thanks for the great dog!
