Service Dog Training

Personal Protection Dogs offer nationwide 1-2-1 service dog training for all breeds of dog, from 12 week old puppies upwards.

 Our service dog training includes basic obedience training to teach your dog to listen to commands such as; sit, stay and down as well as teaching them recall and food refusal. We will also ensure your dog is fully house trained.

Once the dog is trained to obey basic commands we will move on to begin training for whichever specialty you require. We offer a number of different training courses, including; search and rescue, victim recovery and both proactive and passive drug/explosive detection. All of our training includes a full handover to ensure the dog obeys you and also to teach you how to be a confident and firm dog handler.

As part of the course we carry out environmental training, this involves taking the dog to locations such as shopping centres, parks and busy streets to get them used to being around other people, animals and noises.

We are now able to offer dogs trained to assist people suffering from PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder), this training includes obedience training and the dog will also pass a public access course.

The courses we offer run for up to 20 weeks. Prices are available upon completion of an assessment.

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.

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.

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 reccomend Rob and his services.
Yours Thankfully, P.A Worthington.

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.  07846321882
