Re: Personal Protection Trainer

if you don't have a rock solid 100% reliable recall it will be useless no matter how much "bitework" training it gets. and unsafe out in the real world.......JME, but 90% of my customers don't have a solid recall when any level of distraction is put on the dog, so i always make them start there

if it won't bite and hold no PPD trainer will consider it capable of protecting you and i personally wouldn't want a PPD trainer to be the first one to agitate MY dog to see if it will bite and engage a human

you still haven't defined what kind of 'protection' you want from the dog, or what else you intend to use for your PP like Bob suggested, but ANY PPD trainer WILL do bitework, and if your dog is not under your control you will be training a dog that can be dangerous in public, and i consider walking in the woods to be in public

if you can't properly tug with it yet, you have a long way to go before you should consider turning it over for a PPD trainer to work with my opinion of course

pups and young dogs can certainly be taught these basic skills so please explain where you are at now
....the fact that you described it as a pet is irrelevant.....pets can work too
