This and subsequent articles have been written for and posted on ITS Tactical, a sight focused on the professional to the ameteur for tactical thought. These articles are posted every two weeks, and I will post the links here as each is released. Please check back often and post questions and thoughts on the ITS Tactical sight to show your interest.
Today we’ll begin by asking if there is a need for trained protection dogs. The next article will discuss whether there’s a danger associated with “weaponizing” your dog, followed by an article that considers breeds, trainers, and the responsibilities of the owner of a trained dog.
Later articles will discuss safety of those around a trained protection dog and how to maintain that dog’s peak performance. We’ll also illustrate methods of integrating a protection dog into a home defensive plan, as well as how U.S. laws relating to service dogs can be used to keep your family safe.
