The Protection Dog industry for many years has used the Level I, Level II, and Level III ranking to denote and identify to its clientele the level of training the dogs have mastered -- unfortunately, this same industry does NOT have a certification agency that standardizes what these protection levels should be. Don't be impressed by the classification number, rather, ask what that truly means to that organization.
We at Crain's Kennels will take the time to educate our future clients, and inform them with what our levels really mean, and what you should expect from our well trained training team. We do this because we hope that our Family Protection Dog program surpasses the training of all others in each of these categories.
Level-I Personal Protection Dog is trained to show an aggressive display on command. These dogs will display teeth, and display an aggressive stance when commanded to do so (GUARD). This dog will also bite and hold on command (competitor Level-I dogs DO NOT bite). Level-I dogs will be trained to defend themselves and the family; and will do it ON command, or on their own if you are subject of an unexpected assault. Maintenance training is included in this price for the life of the dog. Average PPD price for a Level I is $8,500 to $ 12,500. Call us for our price; it’s lower than the average.
Level-II Personal Protection Dog has similar stance and command language as in the Level-I dog; however, the Level-II dog has also been trained to know how to best win fights with an aggressor. This dog will not back-off from any intruder. Possesses a strong command language where he'll be able to bite and release a bite on command. This dog's bite is full, hard and bone crushing. This dog has been trained to counter all attempts of an assailant to fight or get away. This dog will maintain a safe perimeter around your family and you. Maintenance training is included in this price for the life of the dog. Average PPD price for a Level II is $11,500 to $18,000. Call us for our price; it’s lower than the average.
Level-III Family Protection Dog has received all of the training mentioned in the Level-II dog, plus has learned to fight multiple assailants by biting and holding the first one that makes an aggressive move, while watching the others, then biting and holding the second one that makes an aggressive move, while watching all the others, and so on... This dog will never give up a fight, no matter how many assailants are present. This dog can be sent off-leash on an assailant at a distance (if required), he/she will chase them down and bite them, or, he/she can be CALLED-OFF before a bite. He/she will then guard the intruder, bite them, or return to you on command. A Level-III dog will use his legs, body, teeth, or any other body part to do the job. Will jump over furniture or any obstacle to get the assailant - an efficient fighter. Has been trained to defend against home invasions and car assaults (kidnapping). Maintenance training is included in this price for the life of the dog. Average PPD price for a Level III is $17,000 and up. Call us for our price, its lower than average.
