Family / Personal Protection Dogs For Sale

Contrary to belief a Family/Personal Protection Dog is not an ATTACK DOG. An Attack Dog has a deficiency in its ability to be social. Such a dog lacks domestication. Therefore, limited in its ability to be trained and in its participation to be social this type of dog is unpredictable and unsafe as a companion. A reliable Family/Personal Trained Dog must be balanced in:

• Social tendencies (be predictable within the relations to family/owner.)
• Willingness to work.
• Ability to fulfill its purpose.

Our Family/Personal Trained Dogs are classified into these two categories:–Our first level is a “Specialized Companion” the ideal pet for those families having low security needs. Dogs at this level are obedience trained on and off leash. Conducive to family living, Very social, sound temperament with predisposition to protect. Our second level dog is a “Highly Specialized Dog”. This caliber of dog is genetically able to handle high level training. Whether due to security reasons, handicaps, etc at this level we customize training beyond the spectrum of normal requests. In dogs of this caliber genetics play a very important role in ability to protect. To set ourselves apart from frustrating misunderstandings and disillusions we like our clients to understand that in order to have a true protector a dog must see its world limited to its immediate social circle of people/pack or have a need to protect immediate territory.These types of temperaments are what enables predictability for those clients needing an instinctive protector…not training. We feel this obligation to educating clients about temperament is often over looked. This consideration should be a very important part to your decision making. We do not sugar coat the reality of such a dog. They do make the best pets but good judgment, responsibility and awareness must be applied.True Protectors work through familiarities. There is no difference between an intruder/stranger and a brother/friend visiting that is not part of its day to day world/pack. We do not downplay the seriousness of owning such a dog. When a dog is required for its protective qualities, this quality needs to be genetic if it is to sustain itself. It must be because of an innate need…NOT TRAINING. Training must provide the means of controlling this genetic predisposition not the source of inducing protection behavior. This quality needs to be genetic if it is to sustain itself. Our second level dog makes the ultimate partner. Sharing life with such a companion is a privilege. High Specialized Companion.

Purchasing a trained dog provides you with the benefit of knowing that:

• the selection process of your dog has been professionally acquired
• the k-9 has had proper up-bringing
• the k-9 has had proper socialization
• proper mannerisms have been instilled
• the k-9 has had specialized training to suit your needs

We firmly believe in the ability of our trained dogs. However, the perception that a trained dog will respond like a robot…is not how we like to advertise this service. The ability to influence a trained dog by commands is well founded. But trained dogs are far from being programmed machines. We advocate consideration for how the dog feels and thinks. Reality is that dogs are living, breathing beings like all of us they deserve consideration and respect. We do not promise machines…that would be unrealistic, unsafe, unfair to our dog and to you as a new owner.

What we do promise is a new member to your family who will look forward to pleasing you based on their personalized experience at our training facility. A dogs predictability in behavior is not only brought about through genetic qualities but how these qualities are cultivated and maintained through discipline without sacrificing integrity. We offer maintenance programs to keep you and your trained dog sharp. Continued training offers greater flexibility. Because needs often change, we advocate maintenance programs. By maintenance training and making adjustments when needed we are often able to gradually provide the required training to facilitate dogs to changes.We want to offer you the best we can, but also provide our trained dogs with the same. We interview families before placing our dogs.

WE WILL NOT SHIP DOGS. INTERVIEWING AND MEETING WITH ENTIRE FAMILY IS A MUST.The transition of a trained dog is facilitated greatly by having a vast vocabulary of commands. Using commands that a dog has been trained to provides you with a means of influence. By having this capability of influence a trained dog will immediately see you as a point of reference in its new environment. Once this period is seen through a dog will become adjusted to its new family and relate to you as a leader.

My 7-month-old White GSD Star, just returned from her 4-week board and train with John. What an amazing difference in her obedience. I worked with her since she was 8 weeks old to build a good foundation but started struggling with her on-leash training as she got older. She was also extremely mouthy when taking her collars on and off, which had to change. John’s ability to evaluate, read and work with dogs is second to none. To say the results of my expectations were unmatched, is an understatement. Every week I was sent updates, videos, and pictures on how Star was doing. During these 4 weeks I missed her terribly, but I knew she was in the best of hands. Upon her return I participated in the first of 4 training sessions which were included in her board and train. John taught me, as the handler, how to work with Star with the training tools specific to her. She now walks beautifully on-leash and does not react when I pull her collars on and off. She is also more focused on me and does what I ask her to do regarding obedience. John has a deep passion for training and endless patience when showing handlers (no matter what level) how to work with their newly trained dog. I found John by accident when I was looking for additional training for my last WGSD 10 years ago. I loved his style and how he worked with people as well as dogs, he has a deep compassion for both. I am looking forward to when Star is old enough, when John will re-evaluate her to attend off-leash training at his board and train facility. I HIGHLY recommend John as a trainer; he is the best of the best, and I feel grateful and fortunate to have had this opportunity to work with him and I look forward to continuing with John.

I highly recommend John Soares K9 Training. John did a great job achieving our objectives with our Doberman, who was previously very reactive and difficult to walk. After just a few weeks of training, our dog is now able to stay focused on us in complex and challenging environments, and walking is now super easy with no pull or distractions.I was particularly impressed with John's patience and understanding. He was always willing to answer our questions and help us understand what we needed to do to continue training our dog. He also took the time to teach us how to prevent our dog from becoming reactive in the future.I believe that the investment in John's training was well worth it. Our dog is now a much better household member, and we are all much happier. I would definitely do it again with any other dog we may get in the future.Here are some key points from my experience with John Soares K9 Training:* John is a highly experienced and knowledgeable dog trainer.* He is patient, understanding, and fun to work with.* He teaches you how to prevent your dog from becoming reactive in the future.* The investment in his training is well worth it.If you are looking for a dog trainer who can help you achieve your training goals, I highly recommend John Soares K9 Training.

John has a rare gift with dogs, and besides immense experience he has an innate talent in being able to translate his gift into real results.Through my own interactions and experience with John, I know for certain that he is also a man of great honor and integrity.He's a straight talker who will tell you from the start what can and can't be achieved, rather than give false promises.These qualities all make him your only choice in what is otherwise a sea mediocre and inexperienced K9 trainers out there.

I’m so glad that my wife and I decided to go with John Soares K9 Training, the results were life changing. Our Doberman is a total different dog after spending four-weeks with John and his staff at his board & train facility. We were provided with video’s throughout her training and were impressed with her progress. Nova’s transformation was amazing, the training has blended perfectly into our daily lives. It was one of the best decisions my wife and I made to get Nova the professional training that she much needed. In addition, the four follow-up sessions were geared to train us humans on how to handle a well behave and trained dog. Thank you John, we are totally happy with the results and we highly recommend your board and train program (Obedience & Off-Leash) to family and friends.

I am grateful to have found John to help me with my 18 month old doberman. Not only is John an expert in understanding how this breed thinks but he took the time to get to know my dog’s specific temperament and personality. The 4-week board and train program was definitely worth it because he helped me get to a better place with my pet by teaching me about the importance of tone of voice when giving a command, leash pressure, and timing of corrections. I feel more confident and in control as a handler. The follow up sessions were key to better understanding how to manage his dog reactivity. Thank you for all your help, I really appreciate it!
