How to Prepare Your Dog for Guard Dog Training

How to Prepare Your Dog for Guard Dog Training. Protect your home and family–and provide
them with a loving friend– by giving them the gift of a guard dog. You will need Dog Basic obedience training
Treats Property boundaries and consistency. Step 1. Pick the right breed of dog. German shepherds and Doberman Pinschers make
the best guard dogs due to their protective nature. However, even gentle dogs can be good guard
dogs with the proper training. Remember that guard dogs are a form of security,
like an alarm, but they are not attack dogs. Step 2. Socialize your dog before beginning guard-dog
training. Socialization is the process of getting the
dog used to loud noises, such as traffic and thunderstorms, and getting them to recognize
family and friends. This way the dog will be able to discern between
normal and threatening scenarios. Step 3. Give your dog basic obedience training. Going to classes and teaching your dog to
follow basic obedience rules will establish you as the leader. Start your dog’s training at an early age. This gives the dog a better chance to learn
new things before developing bad habits. Step 4. Practice positive reinforcement. Reward your dog with treats for good behavior
and ignore them completely when they behave badly. Step 5. Identify property boundaries to your dog during
their guard-dog training. Train your dog to recognize your property
as their territory. Use positive reinforcement to drive this point. Step 6. Control your dog’s barking. Using positive reinforcement, train your dog
to bark when someone comes on to your property and to stop barking when given a specific
command. Step 7. Be consistent. The most important thing to remember when
training your dog is to be consistent with your commands and the way you say them. This will help your dog understand you better,
and will improve the results of their guard-dog training. Did you know Dogs have been man’s best friend
for an estimated 15,000 years, when Eurasian gray wolves were domesticated.

    For anyone getting a guard dog I would recommend a bullmastiff or mastiff. They've been successful guard dogs in my family my entire life. Also marimers are good for live stock although for our live stock we used German Shepards or border collies

    What if my dog does not even bark? He barely barks. I meant at strangers around the house for example. And he runs to every stranger that passes by when I take him for a walk. He is still 4 months old (Labrador Retriever) and I want to start training him not to be way too friendly with everyone or not greet anyone unless we tell him to. Ideas?

    This is just superb, I've been looking for "teaching german shepherds" for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Renogan Zonucas Theorem – (search on google ) ? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my friend got great results with it.

  72. Erin Reed says:

    Ok so that shows us
    HOW TO get the dog not to like the person hitting her & bark. But I dont
    have anybody except my parents to help me train her. I dont know or talk to
    very many people. Could I get my mother or father to be the ATTACKER? But then
    when they come over the next time, Symba will probably remember and she will
    attack them.
