Instant, Non-lethal Defense


Would you let your child sleep with a loaded pistol? Would you allow your child to play quietly on the floor with an assault rifle? Of course not. With an Executive Protection Dog, you can provide the same level of security and safety while allowing your children to enjoy the comfort and huggable protection provided by a highly trained Paladin protection dog.


Often, we tell our clients that bullets can’t be recalled. Pistols can’t shoot around corners or find their targets in the dark. With a protection dog, you can release a defensive weapon against an attacker with a single spoken command. You don’t need a license to brandish a protection dog in public either. And, you don’t have to worry about government rules or restrictions outlawing dogs.

Paladin K9 - Controlled Protection

One Command, Six Actions

The “Defense” command is one of the first commands we cover with new owners. We teach you that your first reaction in any situation is to move - move both away from and off the line of attack. This simple step buys you valuable seconds. As you begin to move you issue the “defense” command to your dog. In a split second, your dog performs six separate behaviors as a result of that one spoken “defense” command:

  1. Your dog immediately runs to your side.
  2. Your dog analyses the threat and places itself between you and the attacker.
  3. Now “engaged,” your dog shows aggression to to the attacker.
  4. Unless released by your verbal command, your dog remains by your side, between you and the attacker.
  5. As you move, your dog stays with you, circling you in a defensive stance without you needing to hold its leash.
  6. Your dog positions itself between you and the threat, in a “ready state,” waiting for you to give the release command to defend you from the attacker.

Your Executive Protection Dog will remain by your side, barking without biting, unless you’re approached by the attacker or you instruct the dog to attack. This means you can focus on what’s most important: getting yourself and family into the safest possible place. Meanwhile, your dog’s focus is on protecting you. Even when you’re picking up the children to go into the house or bedroom, or where ever your safe place happens to be, your dog will remain by your side, engaged, showing constant aggression, positioned between you and the threat, even if it requires doing so while walking backward.

Executive Protection

A home invasion could happen as you are getting out of your car or answering the door, or could take the form of a forced entry while you’re watching TV, or unfold as an assault in a parking lot. Most happen from a distance of about 15 feet. It takes almost 2 seconds for an attacker to cover that distance.

Family Protection

What if a home invasion takes place? In that moment it is not a matter of your degree of risk, or how removed your community is from crime. In that moment you will want the highest caliber of dog with the most advanced fighting skills combined with the advanced protection skills to ensure your family is secure.

Estate Protection

If someone is profiling homes in your neighborhood and sees a dog that could be a threat, he will choose another home. What if they don’t see your dog? Once inside, armed and probably under the influence of some narcotic, most of the criminals that commit these crimes will be committed to see it through.
