Protection Dog Costs

How much does a personal protection dog cost?

In our line of work as K9 trainers, there has always been a question that our customers will ask from time to time: how much does a personal protection dog cost? Our answer to this question? It depends. The cost of protection dogs can fall in the range of $5,000 to $50,000. When we give customers this answer, the next question is: why there's such a huge range gap and what are the factors? Let us explain these factors further.

Buying A Dog From Random Dog Sellers

Many people buy dogs on the streets in hopes of being intelligent and having protective instincts from random dog sellers. Sure, you can probably get a great deal by going this route, but you must be careful that you're not purchasing a mixed breed that doesn't have the protective qualities you are searching for.

Buying From A Reputable Breeder and Paying a K9 Trainer

This is usually the best option as you can purchase a protection dog from a breeder that has proven to raise pure-breed puppies and have your dog be trained by a professional dog trainer. Doing it this way, we believe can save you some money. For dog training cost, please check out our page here for more details.

We have protection dogs that we train ourselves and teach our clients and their family to command their dog. At Wolfgang Expert Dog Training, we have protection dogs for sale.
