Custom Obedience and Protection Training 

In addition to the above training levels and target program exercises, individual dogs are trained in other obedience and protection exercises. They are in combination or single exercises. When a trained dog has custom exercises and training it is reflected in the price of the dog.

Custom training exercises I teach are, but not limited too:

Manners/Socialization
Dog is trained to potty in a designated area outside away from where children play or family gathers.  
Trained to pick up and play with his toys only.  
Leave something specific alone
Follow alongside a bike for exercise
Boundaries

Obedience
Any obedience exercise not listed as part of my base program for obedience and protection at an advanced level for every day life.
Retrieve objects for me when directed too

Protection
Will defend you when wearing a muzzle
Will guard/secure an object
Taught to search your house for an intruder, upon locating he begins barking, if he finds no one he returns to you
Distance, custom defense and recall exercises
Dog will defend you on his own if you are unconscious or otherwise unable to provide commands

​Cross trained or dual purpose trained dogs do more than one discipline or have select exercises that are part of a separate program that results in the dog being suited to you.  They still are trained to a specific level of trained skills or expectation.
