Although some large dog breeds are more equipped to guard your home than others, guard dog training is a great way for you to improve your dog’s behaviour as well as to keep your home more secure. It is important that you consider the temperament of your dog before choosing such training, and you can have an evaluation done to ensure your dog is best suited to this particular type of schooling. Once you know for sure they are suited to the task, you can have your dog trained cost-effectively and easily to keep yourself, your family, and your property safer from any would-be intruders, animal or human.
Some dogs will certainly attempt to protect those they love when they feel there is a dangerous person in the property, but a well-trained dog will be significantly more intimidating and better able to disarm a threat. The dedicated professionals who provide this training service take it upon themselves to work with your dog, instilling that this protective behaviour is only to be presented in the event of a present threat so that at all other times you have the enjoyment of a loving, approachable dog. This training will help to desensitize the dogs to loud or unusual noises and threat gestures so that he or she may not be frightened if the time ever should come that they need to protect your family.
There are some minor differences in the way a guard dog may be trained, such as to directly attack an intruder or threat, or to merely alert you to the danger. There are also comprehensive training options which include many different training aspects to help your dog become more versatile in the way he or she will protect your home in the future. Dog training in Sydney is designed so that you feel more peace of mind when alone with your dog at home or when you must leave your family home alone while you complete work or errands.
Trained dogs are also much faster to react to stimuli but are quick to determine whether or not the action alerting them is a threat, and they will learn to listen to your commands the first time they are given. Your dog will be alert at all times and be ready whenever you choose to give a command for them, such as to stay and guard a certain entrance to the house or to stay outside during night time hours. No matter how you plan to use the training, your dog will be far more reliable and faster to pick up on trouble than you are and may alert you to danger with enough time to spare to call the authorities.
Included in the guard training classes are obedience training sessions designed to teach your dog proper manners and to remain calm in public or around other people and animals. A properly trained dog will not bark without provocation, jump on you or strangers, and will not bite a person attempting to pet them unless you give the command or they sense a direct threat.
