Protection dog training that's best in class.

PLUS, training options that fit your needs.

Training Levels

Dogs vary as much in physical capability as they do in personality. When we import a dog, we identify their strengths and put them in a training program that fits them.

You can see the different programs and the exercises involved in the chart below. Import dogs are trained for basic obedience, while Protector dogs come with our complete obedience package and basic protection. Guardian and Guardian Plus dogs have the most advanced protection training, with the ability to handle much more complicated scenarios.

We’re willing to work with you to mix and match different training programs. If you already have a protection-capable dog that needs training, we can evaluate your dog to see if he or she meets our qualifications for training.

Other Training

You can customize a protection dog or puppy training program. We’ll even help you maintain your dog’s training.

Below is a guide to our protection dog training prices. Please feel free to contact us for more information about our programs.

TRAINING FOR YOUR OWN DOG

If you already purchased a dog for protection, but want to take advantage of our advanced protection dog training, we can evaluate your dog to determine which, if any, of our protection programs they’ll be able to complete.

The cost of this evaluation: $500.

This pricing includes local or airport pickup of your dog and thorough testing at our training center. If your dog is able to move forward with the training, we’ll credit the evaluation fee toward your dog’s training.

MAINTENANCE TRAINING

When we deliver your personal protection dog, we’ll show you exactly how to use and maintain your dog’s training. Reinforcing your dog’s training with our techniques becomes an easy part of your routine. If you don’t have time to keep up with your dog’s training, don’t worry. We offer customized maintenance training, which is the perfect way to improve your handling and sharpen your dog’s skills.

Daily rate for maintenance training: $1,500 (one full day of training)

One year of maintenance: $2,800 (one full 8 hour day of training every six months)

Two years of maintenance: $5,200 (includes one week of board & train maintenance to be used any time within 2 years, plus one full 10 hour day every six months)

Three years of maintenance: $7,500 (includes three weeks of board & train maintenance to be used any time within 3 years, plus one full 10 hour day every six months)
