Protection Dog FAQ

What to Expect?

A quality protection dog provides the following:​

Provides an active deterrent through his presence alone, just the sight of one of our dogs is enough to quell most criminal urges
Always alert to potential intruders and alerts his owners to the presence of potential bad guys
Will engage an aggressor or intruder if commanded by his handler
Reliable obedience which makes him safe out in public and with the family

The Process

  1. Contact us to discuss what you are looking for in terms of the dog and his or her training.
  2. We will suggest a specific dog from what we have available here or through our contacts in Europe.                       
  3. You provide us with a deposit and sign our Protection Dog contract. If the dog is finished we move right to purchase and shipping / delivery.
  4. Your dog’s training is completed to your specifications.  Many of our dogs already have training in place and as such dogs can be made available in as little as a weeks time.
  5. During the final stages in the training process we encourage you to come down and have a few familiarization sessions with your new K9 protector.  If you do not reside in the area, not to worry. We can provide video instruction and familiarization with your new dog.
  6. Time to take your dog home.  At this point you have multiple delivery options which we outline in the Shipping section below.


We understand that your needs are unique to your personal family and property situation. As such, we offer different types of dogs and training that are tailored to your unique needs.

Why buy Shield K9 dogs?

Many people simply believe that buying any German Shepherd or other guardian breed is all that is required for a good family protection dog. The sad reality is that most dogs even from guardian type breeds do not have the necessary working ability and character to seriously fulfill this role. Most dogs available on the pet market have been bred exclusively for looks, dog shows or just to be nice pets. The traits necessary for real work including family protection have not been preserved and have thus vanished.
All our dogs come from proven working bloodlines and have generations of real work and titles in their pedigrees.


All our dogs come with health certificates and X-Rays of their joints proving their ability to stand up to the rigors of working to protect you and your family. We also provide a written health guarantee with your new dog.


Prices can range widely depending on what you are specifically looking for in terms of a dog and training. Prices are generally between 15,000 to 55,000 for a trained health tested dog.

All our Protection K9s come with a health guarantee and lifetime training support.
We can deliver your new dog in person and provide a 2 day familiarization course in handling and tactical application of your new K9 partner.
