CPI Training Programs

Training Program Comparison

When purchasing a fully trained dog knowing what you are buying is extremely important. For instance “Executive Protection Dog”, the most common term used within our field, has no meaning in and of itself. It is just a term used to describe whatever meaning a trainer or training center chooses to assign it. The same is true of terms used to describe exercises such as the “Secure” and the “Protective Escape”. They are just labels that we use to represent our training.

In our experience many companies are using our terms but applying them to European sport exercises. You can not compare apples to apples based on terms. You can only compare dogs, training programs or companies based on what the terms actually represents.

Knowing what each program consists of and making sure the exercises are provided in writing within a contract is obviously important. Your being able to have your dog perform those exercises for you on delivery is essential. If your dog doesn’t do it for you on the delivery there’s no reason to expect it to magically happen afterward.

An educated buyer is our best client.

Advanced Handler Protection Skills

Advanced Handler Protection Skills are taught in our Executive Protection program as well as in our Elite programs. These advanced skills provide a variety of useful options as to “how” the dog protects you. Naturally, if faced with a serious threat the more options available to you the better.

As the advanced skills provide a more resourceful and secure way of responding to a threat, they are the preferred choice in such situations. In situations where someone only suspects a potential threat, advanced exercises like the Covert Secure are extremely useful.

Naked Dog by CPI Executive Protection Dogs Elite Family & Estate protection Dogs
Directed Alert
The ability to specify who specifically to direct aggression
towards; also re-direct the dog’s aggression as needed.
black-check-mark-png-th
Directed Attack
The ability to specify who specifically to attack. Also re-direct
the dog to attack another threat. (This is done without the need
for your dog to return to your side or receive a command to
release their bite.)
black-check-mark-png-th
Aggressive Secure
Your dog will immediately come to your side; cling to it;
position them self between you and anyone approaching
regardless from which direction; do so while showing
aggression; automatically attack if you are assaulted otherwise
will wait for a command. The dog will actually walk backwards
while beside you, if necessary, in order to position themselves
between you and someone approaching from behind!
black-check-mark-png-th
Covert Secure
The same as the Aggressive Secure but in covert or stealth
mode (no outward sign of aggression).
(Optional)
Rest Assured
On-command the dog goes to a specific place that strategically
provides the greatest view of bedrooms and/ or entrances. The dog will then remain there until someone tries to approach.
Should someone begin approaching the dog alerts you by
barking. If the person proceeds to cross into the secured area the dog will automatically stop them by attacking.
(Optional)
Protective Escape
Similar to the Aggressive Alert but without tension on
the leash or collar; also taught how to walk backwards
while showing aggression (enabling you to backwards
out of a situation)
(Optional)

The following formal and informal commands are given one time, said in a normal tone. Your dog will obey instantly, regardless of the situation, and completely off-leash.

Manners

We ask that every client fill out a comprehensive questionnaire in order to understand their specific needs. Among these are whether or not children are present in the home. As most of our clients do have children the exercises below are designed to protect their hands from accidentally being hurt when playing with the dog (ie the dog taking a toy out of their hand, etc.). There are numerous ways in which we customize each dog’s training based on each clients specific lifestyle and personal preferences.

Pricing

The following are the price ranges for each level. The prices are based on a combination of level of ability, level of training, structure, working titles and show titles (more information available by selecting pricing in navigation menu).

The ability of a dog to protect is directly related to their level of ability combined with their level of skill (through training). The greater the investment in ability and training the higher the level of protection.
