How to train your dog to Attack

Written By macky on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 | 1:47 AM

As “man’s best friend”, dogs can do more than just hang out with masters, watch TV or spend time playing a game of catch in parks.

Dogs are also great security guards, and can even be trained to attack in cases when personal protection is necessary.

Though it has to be said that situations have to be addressed and commands should be carried out properly, training your dog to attack increases a dog owner’s capacity for self defense, especially with bodily harm or personal threats are being talked about.

Ideally, calling for the services of professional trainers proves to be the best method of instilling the right calls and orders for attack dogs to be. Here are some tips to help reinforce your dog’s attack training regimen.

The value of voice and submission commands – dogs need to be familiar with their master’s voice when submission commands like “stay”, “heel” and “sit”, and maintaining this while you’re training your dog to attack is beneficial. Dogs have instincts of their own, but if properly trained, they can curb their wants if the right command and the right person issues them.

Consider off-leash and on-leash training – when taking about on-leash and off-leash training, emphasis on “attack” and “stop” should be noted, since off-leash attacks require degrees of dog control. Be consistent in the commands you use, with words that your dog is conditioned to obey. Ideally, attack dog training begins with on-leash lessons, and as commands become more instilled, off-leash training can easily take its course.

The dog’s bite – ideally, an attack dog is trained to immobilize a person, NOT to main or to kill. Though submission commands can fall along the lines of “kill” or “seek”, it has to be said that an attack dog shouldn’t kill people, only immobilize them.

Regular “attack situation” simulations – simulating “attack scenarios” helps reinforce attack lessons in dogs, and regular re-training helps. For this, body suits or bite suits are ideal to have in refreshing lessons and training sessions.

Emphasis on regulating your dog’s attacks to immobilization has to be given when training your dog to attack, considering that compounded cases of wrong attacks or aggressive behaviors related to poor dog attack trainings have been reported in the past.

Keep in mind that training your dog to attack is primarily for self defense, not to kill or maim other people.
