Yes, absolutely. A protection dog offers all the loyalty and companionship of an untrained dog with the added bonus of completely protecting you in any threatening situation. A protection dog that has been raised around children and in a family setting makes the best protection dog for a family. A correctly chosen and trained protection dog has a calm and controlled temperament – even if they have a playful side. Protection dogs are trained to detect and resolve threats which make them incredible dogs to have for your family and children.
