Working Dogs

A working dog is a canine working animal, i.e., a type of dog that is not merely a pet but learns and performs tasks to assist and/or entertain its human companions.

At Pedigree Canine we can provide and train Working Dogs for Patrol (Protection) or Detection roles.

Patrol

Pedigree Canine have gained worldwide recognition in providing K-9 Family Protection Dogs. We are perhaps the only K-9 training company in the World that provides family protection dogs with a default temperament of balanced and approachable, safe to interact with whether you're a small child, elderly person, squirrel or cat. Sourced from the world's best Kennels selected for their impeccable welfare standards and excellence in hereditary genetic lineage. Our dogs are socialised from birth so that they develop as perfectly balanced, social and gregarious working pets. Of course, their secondary attribute is their protective role within your family and a Pedigree Canine Certified K-9 is able to manage both roles seamlessly and simultaneously. Our K-9's are dependable (to the 98th percentile of reliable response), fully conditioned and extremely able family protectors, aknowledged as the best possible security option when considering the security of your home and safety of your family.

Roles that our Protection K9s can be trained to do:

  • Family protection and close protection (bodyguard)
  • In-vehicle security (eg. for the school run) and in-vehicle defense (eg. from car jacking/kidnapping)
  • Bark/waring on command ('speak')
  • Emergeny down ('out') if the handler needs to instantly disengage and make the dog safe
  • Escort (escorting the assailant away from the property/towards police),
  • Guard (both guarding the assailant and protecting the owner simultaneously whilst waiting for the police)

Detection

Dogs noses are hundreds of times stronger than ours in terms of smelling scents. For that reason, dogs are excellent at many forms of Detection.

The different roles that we can train our K9s to do include:

  • Human Tool (finding things that you've lost that you've touched such as keys)
  • Human Tracking (finding people that may be lost or hiding)
  • Civilian Hide and Seek - something very fun to do with your dog!

Puppy Selection

Puppies are sourced from the World’s leading breeders (Bloedlijan registered). These breeders are renowned for their fantastic welfare standards and genetic excellence. We select PH1 and PH2 puppies (police/military standard working dogs), who have a balanced temperament and are eager to train towards their suitable roles.

Pedigree Canine uses the scientifically proved training method of Operant Conditioning. Despite popular belief, Operant Conditioning is the only scientific, double blind tested and repeatable, method of animal training. For this reason, it is the method used by industry trainers, police dog trainers and/or military working dog trainers. Operant Conditioning relies on the fact that every sentient creature on the planet will always and perpetually choose reward over consequence. Pedigree Canine only uses vocal correction, never physical.
