BVDT offers personal protection training for responsible dog owners and the peace of mind that comes with it.  Sometimes just owning a dog isn't enough.  You want to know your family is protected when you're away.

A good protection dog acts normal in normal situations and can be part of the family.  Big Valley Dog Training offers personal protection for dogs who are genetically wired for the work.  Dogs must be stable, clear in the head and show a willingness to work.

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 brokering dogs that are already fully protection and obedience trained for a fee.  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.
