Everyone is a professional and has advice to give, but how many have actually had proven results? Degrees and certifications are handed out nowadays so take all advise with a grain of salt. The ability to read an animal and make adjustments on the fly does not come from a piece of paper. THE PROOF IS IN THE PUDDING AND ALL WE SERVE IS PUDDING OVER HEREBULLETPROOF PITBULLS
VIDEO CHAT ONLINE TRAINING
For individuals that are not in close proximity, I have a online option for one on one video counselling. I have helped numerous individuals fix small to advanced problems fast in all breeds of dogs at all ages. From small details, to more advanced complicated problem solving issues. This is a great option and saves travel time and expenses. Its like being right with you and your dog but with the convenience of you not leaving your home. This a super fast and convenient way to dial in training right away and keep bad habits or mistakes out of your training toolbox.
The one on ones can be on Facebook video or Skype for individuals who have or need assistance in all areas of their dog’s development. I will try to help deal with any situation by offering assistance even when your across the globe. My priorities are the well being of my pups and their breed. Making sure they display a positive image with owners armed with knowledge will dissolve the bad reputation this breed has earned. Due to time constraints, there will be a $50/30 mins or $90/hour fee for online counselling.
I have a ground shipper who I trust and charges me $250 to a max of $500 from anywhere in the USA to me in Canada. She charges 18 cents a mile to be exact and does trips frequently. This is an option for dogs that need the board and train option.
board and train
I don’t take on a lot of dogs but for the serious owners that don’t have the luxury of a good trainer or lack the time, I can do board and train and build a dog to suit the objective at hand. This is a passion and not a business for me. I charge for my time and the gratification I get from the change is what keeps me motivated. The dog lives with me in my home and I spend at least 3 hours a day one on one with the dog. It basically boils down to $100 a day with food which in essence is super affordable considering to board a dog over night can be $30 at a boarding facility. Mandatory requirements are a crate trained dog. If I have to deal with a puppy, the time spent will be more and the price goes up, so it’s in your best interest to teach a dog to deal with confinement. With a good dog, I can do phenomenal things and its not uncommon to have advanced obedience done in a month. $3000/month
keep in mind..
Not all dogs are created equal… A quality well thought out dog, bred out of a purpose in mind, will be easier to train for that purpose BECAUSE OF GENETIC DISPOSITION. I will do my job to the ability of the dog at hand and will keep you informed about progress. In other words, don’t tell me you want a Lamborghini and send me a Ford motor with a Honda transmission. Send me Lamborghini parts. All dogs are different and respond different to scenarios. What usually happens when I start a dog..
My goal is too build a solid foundation of obedience and confidence with positive experiences so that the willingness to please will be easy to build up from. I prepare them for real world encounters and enable them to asses and act accordingly in all aspects. For example but not limited too..
Once the above stage is properly realized, then we can move forward to advanced stages of obedience and possibly protection or service dog work.
advanced obediEnce personal protection
There are many levels and differences in OBEDIENCE TRAINING FOR A WATCH DOG, GUARD DOG, AND PERSONAL PROTECTION DOG. ITS NOT AS SIMPLISTIC AS ONE WOULD THINK. The term personal protection gets thrown around by people who really don’t know what that means. A real personal protection dog doesn’t mean you can take him everywhere and get petted by everyone. He/she has a job and any threat will be recognized and confronted. A false move by a friend or stranger will result in a bad outcome. Dogs trained like this transfer bites, cannot be grabbed, react and recognize fast movement, refuse food ect. Most people don’t need this kind of level even though they feel they do. This comes with a lot of responsibility and is not for 99% of people. My PIT BULLS are not specifically bred for this type of work and its better for me to train one of my BULLETPROOF HYBRIDS because of proven genetics, designed by me, for this specific type of training. It’s hard to trust this level of training with dogs of genetic disposition I don’t see fit.
THE BULLETPROOF HYBRID DOGS ANCESTORS LIE IN SOME OF MY BEST WORKING DOGS THAT I HAVE OWN AND WERE SUPERIOR IN HEALTH TEST AND WORK ABILITY. THEY ARE WHAT I SEE ARE MISSING IN THE SHEPHERDS COMMONLY USED AND ARE EXACTLY FOR THIS PURPOSE. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, EMAIL US ABOUT “BULLETPROOF’S HYBRIDS” and read the section of “THE BULLETPROOFS HYBRID PROTECTION DOG” in the menu.
There are all kinds of options in training. Most people just need a threat or scare tactic. Usually thats enough to make a possible threat forget the idea. Intimidation works wonders and the physical look is what packs a punch initially. A PIT BULL IS A CRAPPY PERSONAL PROTECTION/GUARD DOG OUT THE BOX. With training and the proper genetics they are in my opinion some of the best for my personal lifestyle as personal protection dogs BUT REQUIRE MORE COMPLICATED TRAINING. I only need them to react to an actual threat, not a perceived threat and they are confident and stable enough to not make a mistake and don’t bark to give warnings. Barking on command with a bite if pushed is mostly what people really want. Here’s how it generally starts.
There are tons of options but the handler needs to take responsibility for having a dog like that. No real trainer will train this type of work for just anyone who wants a dog to bite with no solid reasoning.
Properly trained dogs can take a few months to a year or built up from a puppy. At $2500 USD a month it can add up and a pup trained to a mid level personal protection dog will be around $15000 USD and up.
