Money Well Spent

"I would like to thank you on your excellent efforts, and time, that you’ve put into helping me with my Doberman Leo. His obedience and overall behaviour is much better and has shown that he can do the protection work as well. You’re very fair but firm with him and always very professional. Money well spent and he’s still a great dog, but just listens more, thank you for all your help."

It is as if we have had him forever

"I have bought Buck from Mr Rob Metcalf as a personal protection dog as well as a family dog in 2007 and we are very pleased with him in every way. It is as if we have had him forever and it has only been a couple of weeks. His behaviour has been perfect and if I ever needed another dog I would have another trained dog from Rob. I would be happy to recommend Rob and his services. Yours Thankfully, P.A Worthington."

I have a great dog - thanks to him

"In January 2006, I had 2 options with Bailey, my large rescue Doberman, put him to sleep at the request of the local parish council, or figure out a way to save him. I had tried obedience classes, special workshops, and some one to one training but Bailey was profoundly disturbed. He was exceptionally aggressive at any moving objects but particularly dogs and bicycles and had pulled me across car bonnets on more than one occasion trying to attack a child’s wheeled buggy or bicycle. He’d also attacked other dogs and turned on me if he couldn’t get to them. A good-natured dog in the house he was an evil menace outdoors. Rob specialises in training dogs for security and personal protection. All I wanted was a dog I could walk without returning home in tears. What I’ve ended up with is a dog I can walk in a crowded place, past other dogs and bicycles, comfortable in the knowledge that I can retrieve the situation if he does decide to “have a go”. In addition, I also have a dog that is now trained to police standards, speak on command and passive site work, working in environments with plenty of distractions and physical threats. He’s not perfect, but he’s a totally different dog to what he was. There are loads of dog trainers in the UK who claim to work with last resort difficult dogs, or defensive guarding breeds like “Dobes” and “Rotties”. But as an ordinary mortal and without police resources available to me, I’ve not found a single one in my search that’s achieved what Rob has with my dog. Bailey is still alive – and I have a great dog – thanks to him."

Since Robert supplied us with a guard dog we have had no problems!

"I have known Mr Robert Metcalfe in a variety of capacities for many years. He has worked for me since September 2011 in various security rolls and a personal trainer for our security dog, Zac. Zac was supplied by Robert and he is a great asset for our business. We have been victims of armed robbery’s in the past, but since Robert supplied us with a guard dog we have had no problems since! Robert is organized, efficient, extremely competent and has an excellent rapport with people of all ages. His communication skills are excellent. I highly recommend Robert as a professional dog handler. If you have any further questions with regard to her background or qualifications, please do not hesitate to call me."

She slotted into our family as she had always been with me

"I am severely disabled and use a disability scooter. After being attacked four times and the police not helping in any way shape or form, I decided to get a protection dog as my Labrador, Poppy, is of course not meant to do a job like this. After searching the net for some time and contacting some companies, I decided to go with Personal Protection Dogs. My reason being that Robert was so easy to talk to, having reasonable prices and most importantly was interested to get me the right sister for my dog Poppy. He chooses Senta a German Shepherd dog. When Senta went to the training I felt unprotected but now she is fully trained! Robert also sourced another fully trained German Shepherd, Jess, and she slotted into our family as she had always been with me. Now I have two executive protection dogs on my side and feel very safe! If you think about getting a best friend and protector for you or your family, I can highly recommend Robert."

I am pleased that It looks like I made the right choice.

"I am disabled living alone and wanted a dog for a companion. After much research into different breeds, I went for a Boston terrier. (Vasgo). Like all puppies, he is full of beans. and proved a bit of a handful for me. Jumping up and trying to show me who was taking who for a walk. I answered an advert in my local mail for a dog trainer. Being of limited mobility i felt that dog training classes wasn’t an option for me. I had a meeting with Mr Metcalf which was a great idea my chance to see if he was the right man for the job. as there are a lot of chancers who think they are good trainers!!! Mr Metcalf put me at ease asked me what I wanted for our needs. With no pressure on my decision. This was week two of Vasgo’s training and he has started to be a different dog. I was amazed as to how he has come on. He seems to be a different dog. I am pleased that It looks like I made the right choice."

Thank you so much.

"We have the sweetest, GSD from personal protection dogs. She’s so clever and has settled into our family life with 4 children very well. If we had room for more we’d definitely use PPD again. Thank you so much"
