As I said in the video, Protection Dogs for You and Your Family was one of the first “prepper books” in my library – My definition being books that help me solve problems. At one time I was in the running to purchase a Belgian Malinois protection trained dog, and I needed to know what I was getting into.
Obviously if you have dogs, and especially protection dogs, I recommend this book.
I am going to risk being a little controversial and recommend it for parents also, not that I am saying your little precious is a dog, but because I think the book gives great advise on raising young animals to be confident and unafraid, it also shows the value of consistency, and very clearly articulates the essential element of the trainer’s actions and mindset in the training process.
My wife will whoop me if she ever reads this (hi honey- love you), but I follow some of this book’s guidance with little WT and he responds t0 me much better than he does his mother’s discipline, and no one can say I think of WT as anything less than my pride and joy – he is definitely not an animal.
Protection Dogs for You and Your Family is as much about you as your animal, and how you need to be fair, firm, and consistent with your subordinate animals.
Of course if you are looking at getting a bit dog, then make sure your ready, including having a good fence.
