Canine Home Protection Tactics (Intro):
I feel people who purchase a home protection canine and even some military/police handlers have never been taught or lack ongoing training in the proper utilization of their canine in critical areas in real world situations. It is important that homeowners/handlers are properly trained by an experienced trainer to be effective. This blog series will address key issues on tactics for home protection canine owners. Throughout this series I will address the specific tactics below individually in detail. If the information provided in this series is unfamiliar to you, training is needed.
The decision to own a home protection canine should not be made lightly and is not for everyone. With ownership comes responsibility. I will identify specific owner liabilities and the importance of annual evaluations with an experienced trainer.
A home owner with a home protection canine should be trained in the following areas:
- Establish plan for the potential conflicts
- Defensive vs Offensive Tactics
- Home Protection Searches and Breaking and Entering
- On Leash Protection
- Vehicle Protection
- Canine Trauma Care
- Safety measures for yourself, family, friends, property and public in social situations
and most importantly obedience. Obedience is the foundation for success in all above applications.
