Frequently Asked Questions Dog Training Elite Des Moines
We also train therapy dogs in Des Moines (which our not technically or legally considered service animals) to visit hospitals, nursing homes and other treatment centers.
To be a personal protection dog, your dog will need to have some "drives" that can be utilized for the work. Generally, prey drive is the key drive that we look for (ie, chasing a tennis ball or going after a tug), but there are several forms that we can utilize. Your dog does not have to be vicious! We want your dog to be a great family dog first, then we need its obedience perfected; only then will we work on personal protection. Of course, we would be happy to assess your dog for free! We do not currently offer personal protection training. Please check back soon.
