Protection training is some of the most intense training anyone can do or be involved in. The
International K9 Foundation LLC takes this training very seriously. Due to the serious nature of this type
of training it’s important to have the most control possible over your dog. I suggest that you have at
least Lev.II Obedience on your dog, thus demonstrating some of the control needed before starting this
type of training. The best time to find out if you have control over your dog is BEFORE I train your dog to
bite. Obedience training will NOT be done on dogs already trained in protection work.
This type of training is conducted in sessions, training session’s last 35-40mins. Dog owners are
required to be present for training sessions and will assist in the training. This serves as the owner’s
handler’s course, learning how to handle the dog. The number of sessions is directly related to the
level of proficiency the owner may achieve with the dog. The more training sessions, great the level of
proficiency and control. The exact number of session needed to obtain a level of proficiency cannot be
determined up front. The price per session varies depending on the dog and the amount of training
needed to achieve proficiency. A basic level of proficiency may consist of a Full Mouth Bite after
perceiving a possible threat, taking a strong stance or dominant position meeting the threat and
engaging the threat, release of bite off the decoy.
The International K9 Foundation LLC is not and will not be responsible or held liable for any action of
the dog. The dog owner assumes any and all responsibility and liability regarding the action or lack of
action of the dog. The owner starts this training fully aware of the potential dangers surrounding this
type of training.
