I’ve been training dogs as a hobby and professionally since I was a kid.
Training them for defense can be really easy with most breeds and it’s ridiculously simple.
Dogs read our emotions. Every time you get a knock or doorbell ring put yourself on alert and start growling as you go to the door.
Keep the screen/security door closed and keep up the low growl as strangers explain themselves and if you can don’t open the door at all, have packages etc left on the stoop.
If it’s a welcomed party, immediately relax and using your “friendly voice” welcome them in.
The dog will pick up on it very quickly.
Please don’t consider this advertising, just showing off my kids.
We’ve got dogs on Six continents hunting everything you can imagine hunting with a dog and keeping families safe and entertained the world over.
This is one of our pup’s in S. Africa. The family runs an exotic animal rescue and they put this up on youtube for fun and it went viral overnight then news crews from German, UK, and Holland did pieces on them and it turned into the biggest fund raiser they could have ever imagined.
