Personal protection is very different from protection sports which require precision; although the foundational work is the same. It is a much longer process than obedience and due to the serious nature of this training, all dogs and owners will be screened before acceptance into this program. For those who are unable to invest the time into training a dog, BVDT also offers dogs for sale that are already fully protection and obedience trained. For more information on this program or to set up an evaluation, please call 209-632-3458. See the FAQ's Page for answers to some commonly asked protection training questions.
