Mark from Didsbury, Manchester. Plumbing and Heating Ltd. (Feb.2011)

I have recentley completed a Level 3 protection training course with Rob from Protection Dog Training .net and the results that we have achieved with Rob are fantastic within just 6 weeks of training. The dog is now capable of passive bite work, right arm and left arm switch, open area search and on and off lead work. If you need to talk to me about the training/results, or the dog, please call me 07912206490.

Dan, in 2008, was looking for a German Shepherd suitable for his ten-year-old son that needed to be of an excellent temperament and a high standard of obedience.  After spending many hours driving around the country and visiting many kennels and training agencies, he arranged to meet us in Milton Keynes with his wife and family. There he met Danny Green and his dog Buddy who was doing a security patrol dog course with us. As a result of this meeting he purchased Bear from us. We then arranged for two more follow up sessions at Milton Keynes and two more with Dan and his family at his home in Kent.
Danny is happy to speak to potential clients looking for an obedient family pet.  : (Pease contact us for details) 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.
Best regards, Vito (Training Completed in 2006). 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. In 2006 I rescued Danny from the streets and knew that he would need professional help with his rehabilitation training.  I contacted Rob and Danny and I started a training programme together and within the first month achieved a very high standard of obedience. The next thing we achieved with Danny was handler protection. From there we went on to cover tracking and speak on command. Thanks to Rob’s fantastic patience and continued assistance and training of Danny, I now have a perfect gentleman and the ultimate bodyguard. Since training Danny I have purchased another four personal protection dogs to complete my family of German Shepherds if you need to know .
If you would like to speak to me about Danny or any of my dogs please call 07939136652. We are the proud owners of a 12 month old German Shepard named Zac who, in 2005, could be a bit of a handful. He is just so playful and boisterous and I was finding him just a little hard work to handle, especially on the lead. A couple of months ago we contacted The Dog Listener who came to us and told us to just ignore him, I know it looks good on the TV, but how could you correct Zac by ignoring the problem as he didn’t realise there was anything wrong and also we found it difficult to ignore Zac completely as he is part of the family. We then saw an advert in the paper for Rob’s operational support, and thought it’s worth a try so Rob could train us for us to train Zac.
We decided to book a 10-week training course and within the 1st week we had already noticed a difference in Zac and the way he behaved. Zac has calmed down a lot and we feel more in control. At the end of our training course, I am sure I will be able to take Zac anywhere and know that I feel 100% confident. It will be a pleasure to show everyone what a good, obedient dog we have. Contacting Rob was one of the best things we have ever done and without his help and confidence in us, and Zac, we would have been at a loss. Thanks Rob for all your hard work and advice, Thanks Dear Rob, My girlfriend and I would like to thank you for all your help and training with Tyler, our German Shepherd who completed training in 2004.  Before we called you we were ready, though reluctant, to sell our puppy. This was due to the fact that we could not get her to do as she was told. We had tried a range of options from books to two different German shepherd clubs. My girlfriend had no confidence from their critique. You have gone further than we ever expected Tyler could go. She has given my girlfriend the confidence to go anywhere, any time, safe in the knowledge that through your protection training with Tyler she will be safe.
Many thanks Dominic & Shelly. kj-103-225x300-8039832, 1625756925 Hi Rob, 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.

Protection dog (Jimmy) For a personal testimonial 07779726347.

On this page we will show video clips of dogs working in training senarios. Here i am training a dog for bite work and a stick attack, using a ball and rope. In a real life situation, it is inevitable that a dog will take some physical pain. The dog will continue to bite the aggressor even if someone is hitting the dog with something like ie a baseball bat or stick. The dog is there to protect us, it sounds cruel but we could replace a dog, but maybe not a child. This is the main reason that people buy personal protection dogs – for human protection. These training methods are used on police training courses (stick and gun attack) and are considered essential for the training of defence on the handler or and the owner of the dog.

This dog has saved the owners life three times in the last four months.
