I have a question, if you don't mind. Do you think your dog cianna after taking protection training classes could now go pass the CGCA test? Where she has to have a multiple people in multiple dogs around her and walk through them without showing aggression. Where she could let other people take her by her lead and walk her around and have multiple people come up to her with things in their hands and not be on guard? None of my dogs have ever taken protection classes like that before and I was just curious.
I believe Cianna would have no problem with it. What she would have a problem with is anyone dominating her other then me. We are training for IPO, it's for sport. Not like real life protection training. Cianna has her CGC, I probably will go and get the CGCA with her this Summer.
I seen that you had the CJC listed as part of her name and that is why I was asking if her mindset has changed since this type of training any. I am planning on testing my dog for the cGCA title sometime this month also if all goes as planned and would love to hear how well she does testing for when she gets it. Great looking pup
And by dominating, I mean correcting her etc
Thank you! Good luck to you as well! No, I would say her mindset has changed more with age. Before now even, when doing protection once a week. She is very protective of me, my house, and my car. But she is very socialized, and in public places and very nuetral around strangers, she really doesn't care, very, very stable. At the house to once introduced. Her IPO training hasn't influenced that at all.
Thanks for the insight
In my last comment I meant she is stable with strangers at the house once she knows I'm okay with them being there. Your welcome!
You two never ceases to amaze me.
How much time do you put into her various training each week?
Thank you!! We just started going to do bite work once a week, so she does two sessions once a week. Obedience and tracking few times a week to. I don't overtrain that stuff because I don't want her to find it boring!
Good work! We were hoping to do IPO as well, but we're told Ajax does not have enough drive. That's ok though. If he does not have it in him, I am not going to push him. We started rally o instead. Much easier, but still something for him to do.
You say she would have a problem with anyone other than you correcting her. I guess you don't have a family then, or they do not interact with the dog at all.
Thanks! Cool, good luck with that! I do Rally with Cianna to, she loves it and has her Rally Level 1 title, working on her two.
And yes I do have a family, but no they do not correct my dog. My mom and I both have dog's we are training for IPO, I don't correct her dog, she doesn't correct mine, I don't do much with her dog other then let him out, same goes for Cianna.
Hey all, I had a question for ya. I just adopted my CC a little over a month ago and he is now 9 months. He is extremely smart. Im doing obedience training with him myself and he learned sit lay roll over shake and stay all in about an hour. So to get to my question do you think hes to old for me to start him in attack training and does that training make him any type of aggressive? thanks for your time.
Hi Justin, just so you know, the training I am doing with my female at this time, is for sport. IPO is a sport, the protection routine is very patterned. Bad IPO training could make a dog aggressive, and so could bad personal protection training ( as you call attack training). I am NOT experienced with personal protection training, BUT, from what I understand, they train the dogs to protect in real life scenarios, if done incorrectly this could make your dog aggressive, could make him start to see potential threats everywhere you turn... 9 months is not too old, imo he is too young for any type of work with pressure. I don't see anything wrong with doing personal protection training, as long as you understand you are teaching your dog to bite in certain real life scenarios, so you NEED to train with someone who has a lot of experience, and understands the CC breed or even the mastiff breeds.
Great job! Great work. I once had a Belgian Malinois that I trainer personal protection work, along with a "certified" trainer. All that did was get me a dog that was constantly on guard that I couldn't trust around anyone not living in my house. He was never a threat to my children, our my wife or myself, but everyone else he saw as a threat. That really tuned me off on the protection, but now that I have a CC, I find myself maybe wanting to revisit something structured if I could find the right person to educate myself and my puppy. Do you have any suggestions or tips that will help in this regard?

WOW!!! that is all I can say.
FYI, you make me feel like a slacker lol
Browniebits, interesting!! I've heard other things like this before about that type of training. I don't think that's always the case, but, it can be possible I guess. I just do IPO with Cianna, although, possibly, after she is retired from IPO I may want to do another kind of training with her, maybe get a PDC on her or a French Ring or Mondio Ring Brevet. OR, some personal protection training for fun. Maybe. I would just say go to someone who is experienced with mastiff breeds, and someone who is experienced in whatever type of training you choose to do with your dog.
