Training Dogs To Protect Your Family From Home Invasion

Due to a recent home invasion on my street, where three armed men tied up 2 toddlers and their nanny (children I saw every day)… as well as the high number of clients who contact me interested in training their dogs to protect their families, I’ve finally decided it was urgent that I share this video, and rare opportunity with you.

    Hello Minette,
    Thanks for getting back to me! Unfortunately as i live in the UK the webinar is at 2.00am and i have to work the next day!
    I have signed up for a few of the courses at the dog training secret, so when you get the course going, i’ll probably be interested in it. i have a 5 yr old GSD bitch, who can be sometimes reactive to other dogs, however i’ve been working with clicker training on ‘watch me’ and gradually desensitising her. she’s coming on well!
    Thanks,
    Maggi

    I figured it would be in the middle of the night. Sorry! I will keep you in mind!

    The control we teach in this program will also continue to help with her reactivity to dogs ๐Ÿ™‚ and should be fun for her to use some of her other instincts!

    Minette,
    i am really grateful that you have been so considerate to send me the video of the webinar that i was unable to tune into as it was the middle of the night! i really appreciate that you would take the time to do this, as i imagine that you have many things to attend to. so a great big ‘THANK YOU’, i’m just about to go and watch it. i think protection training is often misunderstood….the way i understand it is that it is a way to actually have a safer dog, because the dog has had a lot of work to help focus it onto specific commands, so it’s not about aggression at all, it’s about engaging your dog with a task, and if that is done in a way that works on rewarding the dog, then i think this produces a sound, reliable dog, that responds to a command; whether that is ‘sit’ or ‘go sniff’ or ‘grab'( or whatever the command in protection training is) so to me, that’s what it’s about….i may be wrong, however!!! Maggi

    You are exactly right!! My dogs are perfectly social and really enjoy this game and that is all that they think it is another skill and another game to play with me!

    I have a 12 month old female Cane Corso. She was 4 months old when I got her and tends to be quite timmid. She is taken out to dog parks on a regular basis and I want to keep her socialized and good mannered as well and friendly. She is a vocal protector of the home when loud noises are taking place outside, and I actually give her a verbal command of “protect” when she hears an outside noise but I want her to be limited to taking this stance only when directed by command. I would like more info on this type of training but I also want to know that I have full control of this type of behavior.

    [Reply]

    Minette Reply:

    That is the most important part and something I will focus on in my teaching. This is not for the person that doesn’t want to follow through the program! A lot of it will be about control and learning how to control the dog’s drives once you build them.

    First it is about building their confidence. A lot of dogs will not truly protect if they are fearful or under confident so much of this will be about building that confidence.

    A confident dog is also much easier to trust and handle!

    I too have a one year old dog that is timid and this training allows him to build his c
    confidence. Its like taking your kid to karate, you are teaching them some life skills, then you put in the control and you are ready to rock!

    Please fill out the form below the video and join us for the webinar! I would love to help you build your girl’s confidence and teach her this fun game!

    Aw I am so glad you mentioned timid dog. My big beautiful German Shepard will run away if another dog barks …which I didn’t think would be a bad thing. I have notice if push comes to shove she will stand her ground, especially if I’m in the picture.
    I think training of this sort would build her confidence, but I use apple products and the Flash Adobe is unload able on either my Mac or my iPad ….I’m not sure why?
    Is there another way to see the lessons

    Tonight is just to gauge the interest of the program. I have not filmed the videos or built the program yet. If there are not enough people who are interested in this program we will scrap the idea. So, if not enough people show up tonight and are truly interested, we won’t go forward with it…as it is an investment to build. If there are enough people, I will get a puppy and begin filming how to train from the ground up and also train my timid 1 year old and the 2 year old dog from the video ๐Ÿ™‚ So if you can find a way to join us please do!! I would assume there is a way to use those and still see the webinar, since leaving all the Mac and IPad users out would be a lot of people, I am not very computer literate but I would think there is a way!

    Yes! I want the same thing for my dog. She always barks at people and noises outside. It’s really annoying and it bothers my roommates and house guests, but I’m not sure teaching her to stop barking would be the best thing to do. She’s not very big (12lbs) but I like when she warns me about things going on outside. I’d like to control this behavior, like you have, and maybe get her to stop barking everytime someone walks by and only when necessary.

    Minette Reply:

    I let my dogs bark to alert me (usually 2-3 times) then I teach them to be quiet on command and I can also get them to bark anytime I want…say in the car if someone is too close to me. It is a nice system to have!

    Interested in seeing your recommendations for protection training. My husband is interested in this area, but doesn’t want something that costs an arm and a leg or to put ourselves in a situation where we might ruin our dog, because we don’t know what we’re doing…

    That is why this program will be different than anything you have ever seen before…we will be taking a brand new 8 week old puppy and teaching him from the ground up, and you can also see a dog at one year still learning and getting his confidence, and a 2 year old dog who is learning more intricate bite work.

    I watched your video and I would be interested in teaching our new two yorkies to bark when they hear the doorbell or saw someone coming in to our lot. (We had a lovely one year old Yorkie and he was a great self trained guard dog, but unfortunately got killed last Dec.) Our two new brother puppies are so happy with having each other to play with – they have no sense of duty!! They are now 6 and a half months old.

    Hi Chet

    I have a 14mth old Cane Corso female entire who so far has done very well in basic obedience training but I haven’t perfected the recall as yet – they are a naturally very protective breed and she has mostly stopped growing at 40kgs but may just fill out a bit more and grow a little heavier – I would be interested in taking her training further in the field of obedience and that of protection training…I would be interested in your comments! I also have an 8yr old jack russell x fox terrier who is very clever and catches on quickly…

  11. Luann Johnson says:

    I rescued a female Siberian Husky 6 months ago and she is probably a little over a year old now. I have your program and she was obedience trained and also is now going to agility classses for fun. She does all basic commands and lots of tricks and helpful services like getting my slippers or if I drop my medicine she will pick up the bottle for me. She is very easy to train. The only problem I have with her is pulling on the leash…but she is a Husky. Also when I walk her and someone has another dog near her she will growl…only on leash otherwise she will play with them. She has a brother who is an 8 year old chihuahua mix. She is very friendly and does not bark much…mostly howls. She also likes strangers and would try to get attention from them by licking them and wagging her tail. I don’t know if she will be able to do protection training? I would like to keep her friendly but I am a single mom in a not so safe neighborhood and would like her to stay friendly but also know when to use protection. Thank you for your time.
    Sincerely,
    Luann

    My dog that you see in the video doing the biting, is one of the most affectionate dogs you could ever meet. She also spends lots of times in public meeting people, getting hugged and petted…but she knows when it is time to play her favorite game (which is mostly all she thinks it is!).

    If you do it right and you have a stable dog it won’t change your dog’s personality, it will only give them another skill and game to play! Come and join us for the webinar!

  20. I feel this webinar will be interesting to the average home owner who may feel that some sort of inexpensive alert system against theft would be good to have. Any would be criminal hearing a dog bark convincingly behind the door would probably be deterred. This could be the sweet, friendly family pet. Size counld make a differience relative to protection vs. alert. Naturally size would make a differnce if no one was home. I don’t feel that formal attack training would be necessary.
    Looking forward to the webinar.

    My dog is a German Short Hair Pointer(I think) that I found last May on the side of the road. The vet sais he was 7-12 months old at that time. After not beeing able to find the owner I decided to keep him. He was ver dog aggressive but friendly with people but he was very mouthy and would play bite with his sharp teeth. I have trained him not to bite and he has gotten bigger and very strong so the only way I can control him is with a shock collar. Most of the time I don’t need to shock him, just having the collar on is enough. He is a dog that looks like he could be dangerous and I don’t want people to be afraid of him. I think his natural instinct would be to protect me if he sensed danger.I’ve considered this type of training before but have been hesitant for fear that he might become aggressive. I will definitely be watching the webinar. Thanks!

    [Reply]

    Minette Reply:

    My training all revolves around building their confidence and playing a game.

    First we teach the game to bark, chase, nip, bite and then we let them win and build their confidence.

    Later we add more serious situations, once your dog can handle it, but he still thinks he is playing (to some degree).

    I wary dog will probably take a bit longer to progress and build his confidence, but I am sure he can learn and I bet he will really enjoy it!

    Chet,
    I read your material, and usually move on without much thought. Today I stopped, and thought about this. I agree with you, on all counts as it relates to protection work. I have never had my home broken into. I have two German Sheperds…trained as very obedient family dogs. I have never done Shutzhund, but I have thought about it. I chuckled at your comment about .45s. I think I have the answer. Firearm training does nothing for my wife or any of my four sons when I am not home, and everything is in a safe. The alarm doesn’t seem to do much when its not on, but the dogs are always present. When I am home, the alarm tells me that my youngest Shepherd has opened the back door and let himself in (I taught him to turn door knobs…stupid, stupid stupid. The security camera is quite useful in determining which son really “started it” when one is crying.
    The dogs may or may not “protect”, but serve as a reminder to John Q. Thug that the next house is a better idea, and then the .45s are simply to protect the dogs.

    My wife thinks I worry too much about her. What she doesn’t really know is that I don’t worry at all, not now.

    Minette Reply:

    If you are interested please join us. It will be like Schutzhund but with more real world scenarios and training.

    I too have guns, my dogs are my first defense. They are my alarm system, and fist line. If someone broke in and they bit them, I would probably shoot them ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But like you said, we are comfortable with the kids home alone.

    And, because they have had some simple and fun training, I have no doubt someone would get bit if they were dumb enough to come into my car or home.

    Yet, when you are invited in they will lick you and sit in your lap ๐Ÿ™‚

    I live in South Africa, that mean that it also be night time here by us, I did register for the webinar. I’m busy training these lovable doggies called dachshunds, a bit difficult because I have to train 2 or 3 at a time (adults) and 3 – 5 (puppies) at a time, or else they start moaning at me. Because I’m a breeder I would like to train them also to protect the family not just by barking (what the can do very good) but by also attack if it is necessary at a certain point. Please record the webinar and make it available to us, I believe their is a lot of people that want to, but can’t make it at that time.
    Remember dachshunds are very smart, they can quickly turn the cards around and teach you.

    I have seen the videos of your dog working and it’s very impressive! My property is surrounded by high walls and wrought iron gates, so access to the house is difficult and there is no doorbell, only dogbells. I live on a private deadend road and my dogs are very quick to let me know if a vehicle or person is near. I have a “Shih-poo that is very vocal but obedient and protective and good with strangers if I’m there and tell him “it’s okay.” The Bearded Collie mix is 20 months and still learning. She is a 50 lb. dog that is very vocal appearing vicious and protective behind those iron gates, which I haven’t discouraged since it’s a rural area and I live alone. She dearly loves the critter-sitter who is there daily and puts her in her crate if workers need to be where she can get to them. The Belgian Malinois is thirteen and arthritic but is also vocal and doesn’t appear at all friendly to a stranger, although extremely loyal to me. Your webinar sounds interesting, however, the time won’t fit into my difficult schedule. I would be interested in viewing a recording of the event if at all possible.

    We have an Anatolian/Great Pyrnees mix that is 11 months old. The guard instinct is very prominant in him and he will not allow anyone on our property or in our house unless they are invited, nor will he allow anyone to approach our car. Would this seminar help in controling this instinctive behavior…I am very afraid of him biting someone. We did get him for protection but he is obsessed with it. We live on 3 acres and have an electric fence which he has never tried to cross even with lots of temptation…while not guarding our yard, he is in the house. It is even getting difficult taking him on walks. I know this protection mode will probably get stronger as he ages and I’m worried I am running out of time to get him under control. Thank you!

    [Reply]

    Minette Reply:

    It will teach you to control it and teach him to view it less as a defensive drive and more as a prey drive.

    Eventually he will go from prey to defense and back again, but he will learn to control himself and build confidence.

    The most important thing with a dog like this is to adhere to the obedience and control portion that will come along….don’t start this and then decide to stop along the way! The obedience will be your best friend!

    [Reply]

    Becky Jones Reply:

    I’ll sign up…whatever it takes to get him under control…he is an awesome protector, but we just need to get him to learn to back off when told to without taking away his desire to guard.

    I will be using positive reinforcement, some clicker for obedience and some of the skills but just a marker word for the protection phases (as you can’t hear the clicker through the barking and fun). The basis will be the same, working for the reward ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. I would very much like to know about protection training as we live on a farm and my husband goes to europe every year. Then it is just my dog Tinkerbell and I here. I would like to know the correct way to train her.
    Thank you,
    Maureen

    We have a Boston/Rat Terrier mix called a Brat….about 15 lbs. She is great about giving a bark when someone comes to property, about 30 acres. But then she is friendly when we say its ok…I think she would do well with this type of training as Boston’s were used for crowd control/riots in earlier days. She has sharp teeth and a great bite…wont let go even if she gets airborne.She really needs training about when to go into protect mode…we are seniors, live secluded and have a gun and a plan, but she would be a good addition to that plan….I will be watching too

    We have a huge lab and a small Ausidoodle. They bark like crazy whenever anyone comes. However they don’t act aggressive. I need them to differenciate between friendly and unfriendly visitors and react accordingly.

    I’m a 64 yr. old female, 115 lbs and have a 10 1/2 month old Newfoundland/Poodle mix who probably weighs close to what I do now or will by the time she’s full grown. My computer is very slow. Video’s play for a few seconds then buffer for more seconds then play … etc. Do you know if a webinar would be feasible or not even worth exploring with my accessability issues (is a modem hookup, not dial-up but very slow with the old wiring in this small city, too far away from the signal source.

    I am a single female, so its just me and my boxer, Cocoa. I really would like to attend this webinar, but I work in the evenings. The only evenings I’m available is Sunday & Monday. If you can schedule another webinar in the morning or during the evening on one of the above days, I would be very interested in attending.

    [Reply]

    Minette Reply:

    I am not sure the Webinar company will let us replay it.

    Tonight is for us to gauge the real interest in the program and for me to answer people’s questions. If there are not enough people in attendance then we will not go through the investment of building the program.

    If there are, then I will get a puppy and begin shooting videos so you can see exactly what to do from square one. I think there may also be one on one calls, and perhaps more webinars or group chats along the way.

    I think it will be a great program if we get enough people on board!

    I do Maltese rescue and have my own, two puppy mill resues I’m trying to socialize and a half maltese and papillon male I took in from a mill situation. He was very very slow to learn to trust me but after 3 years he decided he loves me! Evidently that also triggered protect her in his little pea brain because now if a man he doesn’t know well comes into the house he gets between us and gets very threatening. He’s so tiny most laught at him but the female I’m socializing bites me on occasion and those little teeth draw blood and hurt like heck. I’mm hoping you show how to control that new little trick of his. My son who lives away from here came awfully cloee to getting bit on his last visit when he came in and grabbed me for a big hug. He would not have been amused. As a woman living alone I like for him to be protective to a point. I’ll try to get free for the video tomorrow night. Thanks so much.

    Please send the webinar training to me to watch when I am at home. Due to work schedule I am usually not on the computer until midnight. I am interested in a growling barking protective stance. I am afraid to teach my dogs to bite hard due to so many people suing.

    If you sign up for the program at the end you are welcome to take it as far as you like for your comfort level.

    If nothing else I think watching the videos will make you feel more comfortable about the whole process. My dogs are very well controlled and my female (who was doing the flying bite in the video is very social!)

    Chet: How did the home protection training go? Sorry that I missed it, the one time I didn’t have a chance to check my email. I would be interested in seeing this training, are you going to make it available again? I think this was a great idea and much needed today.
    Even though little Aussy is still a puppy he will bark when he hears something in the night, but to make him aggressive, this I gotta see. I did see him viciously attack a unsuspecting leaf as it was being blown across my lawn. But who knows, this little fuzz ball who is still afraid of his own shadow could turn into a Lassy or a Rin Tin Tin.

    It went well. We have decided if enough people are interested we will begin launching a program probably the second week of May.

    First we are gauging interest and also we are waiting for the selected “star of the program” to turn 8 weeks old.

    This will be an over the shoulder training program where you will watch me raise and train a puppy from the day it comes home and up and also see how my 1 year old and 2 year old dog train in this venue.

    It will almost be a video diary of our pup and also show what this will look like with an adult dog later after the training foundation has been applied.

    I hope that you and Aussy join us! It is going to be some fun training and I will help you step by step!

    I have a cute little one year old chawawa pom mix. Anyone who could see her and wanted to break in would probably just bop her over the head, or kick her. I don’t think she’s a candidate for prot. training, although she barks fiercely now if she hears anyone she thinks has entered our property.
