The cost of a protection dog can cost upwards of $100,000 or more, depending on several factors. Our dogs, however, start from around $20K and go up from there. These factors include the breed of the dog, the level of training, and the reputation of the training facility or trainer. At Israel Protection K9, we provide a top-notch product due to our experience working with military K9s with the Israeli special forces units and building our own method on top of the military training.
Popular top breeds of protection dogs include German Shepherds, Belgian Malinois, and Doberman Pinschers. These breeds are known for their loyalty, intelligence, and protective nature. It is important to note that not all dog breeds can be trained as protection dogs and that only a select few with the highest genetics from those specific breeds make the cut. Additionally, some breeds are more expensive to purchase and maintain than others, which can also affect the overall cost. At Israel Protection K9, we have a deep understanding of the characteristics and capabilities of each breed, which allows us to provide the best training for each dog and as result, the best possible dog for each individual client.
The level of training is another important factor that can impact the cost of a fully trained protection dog. Basic obedience training is usually included in the cost, but additional training in protection work, such as personal protection, executive protection, and even dog sport training, will increase the overall cost. Furthermore, the level of training is directly proportional to the cost of the dog, a more advanced level of training will lead to more expensive costs. At Israel Protection K9, we provide a comprehensive training program that covers all aspects of protection work, ensuring that each dog is fully trained and ready to protect its owner.
The reputation of the training facility or trainer is also an important factor to consider when buying a fully trained protection dog. A well-known and reputable trainer will likely charge more for their services, but the quality of training will be worth the investment. Additionally, trainers who have a high success rate in training dogs for specific tasks or those who have trained dogs for high-profile clients may charge a premium price for their services. At Israel Protection K9, we have a proven track record of training dogs for the Israeli special forces military, which has earned us a reputation as one of the best protection dog training facilities in the world.
It is important to note that owning a protection dog is a big responsibility and requires a significant financial commitment. The cost of training is just the beginning, as the dog will require ongoing care, food, veterinary expenses, and training. Furthermore, owning a protection dog also requires a level of dedication and commitment to training to ensure that the dog is well-behaved, well-trained, and ready to protect you and your family at any given moment.
