Jehane.

Could you post a link to a Bio? I didn't see one. Was interested where you are from and what you are all about.

Re: Saved by your PPD

I am with Patrick here. The dogs seem to scare people so they have never had to bite them.....but they have stopped several questionable incidents.

Re: Saved by your PPD

I know the deterent factor is great and I guess that is ideally what you want. It will save you all the legal nonsense if the dog does the job without biting.

Was just wondering if anybody was actually ever forced to use their dog for real and actually bite.

Re: Saved by your PPD

I don't train PPDs but a couple years ago this meth head broke into my house. He worked on our farm and knew I was gone to a party at lake martin but I caught a ride with this girl I hooked up and come home with her. Well she left after I fell asleep and went home and left me there. There was no vehicle there and no lights on so it looked like no one was home. I heard something and woke up this guy is in my house. My dogs pen is my backyard and a backdoor leads to it. We start fighting in the kitchen and he grabs a knife and cuts me. My dog broke the door casing with the deadbolt part of the luck and got in and bit the guy in his armpit. I was stabbed 7 times and cut in 2 places. One time in the throat, twice in the chest, twice in the back. one time in the forearm and one time in the side. Had my dog not got in there he wouldve killed me cause I was getting to where I couldn't fight anymore. The dog freed me up to get to a 30-30 I keep in the corner to shoot deer in the field across the road. I tried to call the dog but he wouldnt let go and him being around the guys head is the only thing that kept me from shooting the guy in the head. I ended up shooting him in the small of the back though. The guy is in prison now and paralyzed. It took me about 4 months to get over it. My luings collapsed and I also have nerve damamge from all the scars but my dog saved me. Btw he has never had any formal but all these "know it alls" seem to think if one doesn't he wont defend you. Thats fine if you believe that but when peole tell me that at trainging sessions I tell them to jump on me and see what he does . Also people seem to think I have a problem with LEO and now that I think about it I guess it could be attributed to the fact that that guy was only given a 7 split 3 which means he will do 3 years and was only charged with 1st degree assault instead of attempted murder

Re: Saved by your PPD

Wow Thomas. What kind of dog do you have. I am guessing it had to be a mal or a GSD to bite the guy because they say those are the top protection dogs. As far as untrained dogs not protecting, we are going to see if we can put that baby to bed once and for all in the near future.
