Trained Protection Dogs for Sale

Our family protection dogs are highly trained to assess and respond to potential danger while keeping the family they protect safe. Our training program focuses on ensuring that these dogs understand the difference between real-life threats and friendly encounters with strangers, so as not to become overly aggressive towards people during an inappropriate time. We use multi-faceted reinforcement methods to teach our dogs basic to advanced obedience commands, as well as how to recognize various types of cues from their environment. For example, our dogs are taught to be alert for suspicious activity and bark when necessary, but also how to remain calm when nothing out of the ordinary is happening. To ensure our dogs react properly in any situation, we train them extensively in realistic scenarios such as running errands with their owner or going for a walk in a busy park. This way they can make appropriate decisions based on the situation at hand rather than becoming fearful or aggressive towards every person they meet.

What our clients say

Tony Schiozzi, Retired Sgt. NYPD

I strongly recommend that if you are looking for the best dog trainer, and the Harvard of dog training, please consider John Soares as both you and your K-9 companions best friend and teacher. John’s methods are humane, proven and effective and in the long run cost effective.

Bernard B. Kerik Police Commissioner, City of New York (retired)

Throughout my career, I have seen one K-9 program after another, in various police, military and civilian organizations and have met some of the best trainers in the world, but I have never met anyone as accomplished and experienced as John Soares.

Sgt Mike Krzywicki, Kingston PD

I am pleased to say that back in May of 2010, I was contacted by John who told me he believed he found me the dog I was looking for right down to the color of the dog I requested. My trainer and I went to see John and were very pleased with what we saw John had done with the dog in such a short time. John was very concerned about our needs and was more interested in selling me a dog that worked for me than with making a business deal.
