Karen testimonial

"Excellent service. From the first call to handover it’s obvious the teams main priority is the dogs welfare. Rob took the time to get to know us and was then able to match us with wonderful Solo. We were encouraged to visit any time and spend time getting to know Solo. With his tailored training program, and the support of Rob and his team, Solo settled very well following his home delivery and handover. Rob’s shown a keen interest in his progress and we’re amazed at the following Solo has on Total K9’s Facebook page!!! We recommended Rob to friends who have used his training services successfully. Thank you Total K9."

testimonial of dogs from Kaleish

"After an incident at home we decided on a protection dog for our family and after looking at many companies we settled on Total K9. I felt the owner Rob was very professional in his approach. He made the effort to understand our family and needs and chose Bear a black German shepherd for us. He is an amazing dog. Protective when needed but 100% a loving family dog which is great with the children. Would not hesitate to recommend this company and Rob. You won’t be disappointed."

Kailesh Solanki

testimonial from Steve and his DOG

"2 years ago we got Bear from Total K9, he is an excellent dog, he has been beyond all of our expectations so much so that we took delivery of Xena as a companion for him approximately 2 weeks ago, and guess what she has settled in so well. Rob and Nathan have, with the Total K9 team provided us as a family with 2 brilliant well trained and socialised family protection dogs. I have no problem giving personal recommendation to anyone wishing to deal with this company. 5 stars in my opinion is not high enough, well done guys... thank you."

Protection Dogs Frequently Asked Questions

What are protection dogs?

Protection dogs are normal pets that are living with a family from their early life. This way the dog has full training to react when instructed to do so and they will protect the family with their life.

What kind of dog will protect its owner?

Any breed of dog will protect the owner to some extent, but they are the best when trained.

Are trained dogs safe for kids?

Dogs can help with security of a person or kid if trained well. They can provide protection for their owners and family because they are very loyal.

What are the best breeds for protection dogs?

A lot of dogs can be fantastic guard dogs. Here are some I personally believe have the ability to be guard dogs: German Shepherd, Cane Corso, Rottweiler and Doberman Pinscher.

Do German Shepherds make good family protection dogs?

Yes! I personally believe that this breed offers the best dogs for protecting your family. They are house dogs with solid instincts to listen, learn, and obey.

How much does a protection dog cost in the UK?

Protection dogs for sale range from as little as £3,000 for puppies and may go a lot higher for a fully trained protection dog, but it all depends on the age and the training level.

Is it legal to have a protection dog on your UK property?

Yes, it's legal to have a protection dog, as long as you post warning signs that there is a guard dog on the premises. The notice must be clearly displayed at all entrances and fences.
