What's 'good for a PPD' will be determined by the owner/handler the dog is protecting, and the trainer conducting the sessions.

Good bites, bad bites, good targeting ,bad targeting.......are terms that on a sport field that can/are used to calculate a score.

Biting.......is the very last resort, action, and shortest engagement time that will most likely ever take place in a situation off of the sport field. Real world PPD involves a lifetime of 99.9% protecting-and then there is that very small sliver of a chance remaining of having to actually bite.

Totally forgot that I said I would post an update. lol sorry.
He did pretty well. They said they were pretty impressed with him. But they want me to just do bitework there for a few weeks, to get him focused in that drive.
The past couple weeks he has really matured, and starting to get more intense, bold and focused on the ball and tug.
Another thing I noticed, he's definitely starting to get more 'alert'. Watching people around me a lot, barking a little when people come in the house (before he figures out it's family). And while at work, a coworker came in wearing a hood. He gave a few low woofs, and when she walked past him he jumped off the cot he was on and trotted after her, running into her and staring her down until she talked and he recognized her.
I'm assuming thats a good thing right? Confidence to approach things he's unsure about?
I know it'll have to be kept in check though.

Re: Questions on personal protection w/ rottweiler

Halie

glad to hear there is progress

and be glad if you are training a PPD that you don't follow the japanese custom for entering a house.
- it is perfectly acceptable for someone to open your front door if it is unlocked and announce their presence. ours is rarely locked

since our house is also a business, when we first got my current house dog, suffice it to say ... it was a "problem" and a challenge //lol//
- especially since we have young kids coming here for ballet lessons //lol//

took about a year before i trusted him 100% inside the house. i could write a book on this subject alone.....hahaha
- plus i often board dogs outside, and "outside" is very close to our front door //lol//

on the plus side ... the training opportunities are never ending !!

Re: Questions on personal protection w/ rottweiler

One more reason I'll never move to Japan... LOL
I want a protection dog for a reason. My doors are always locked, my gun always at my side, and so are my dogs. Can't be too careful in this world anymore. Especially being a woman. But thats another topic of discussion..
Anyway, dog is making me happy. And I think he'll make a very good deterent and commited dog. Only time will tell. I'll start another thread when I have more questions

Re: Questions on personal protection w/ rottweiler

since you brought it up
"My doors are always locked, my gun always at my side, and so are my dogs. Can't be too careful in this world anymore. Especially being a woman. But thats another topic of discussion.."

actually, those sounded like reasons why you should move here //lol//

and there's more
- you could also save money by not needing theft insurance for your car
- if you had kids they could play safely and unattended in any park after school
- if you were young and single and worked nights, you could safely walk home from work thru those same dark parks
- if you took a bus and left your purse on it you'd have a very good chance of picking it up the next day

- last but not least ... if your PPD bit someone in your house who did not have your permission to be there, you would have ZERO risk of being arrested or sued //lol//

i do miss my guns....u can only use shotguns for hunting over here
but with my navy background i tend to be more security conscious than the average resident //lol//
...my wife reminds me of that all the time

good luck with your training ... train hard and train safe .... and i hope you never need it to do its job
