    for ANY dog, the key isn't that it has 'papers' but to judge the ancestors listed on those papers.

    The whole idea of breeding is 'the apple doesn't fall far from the tree'. So look at the dog's parents and grandparents.

    A good protection dog will be termed 'working quality' and in the parents or grandparents it will have at least one dog that is a schutzhund champion, 'French Ring' champion, or be a highly regarded police/military dog.

  • You will know it will be a good protection dog when you buy a TRAINED protection dog from a professional PPD trainer/breeder. Remember that you have to actually buy a PPD NOT a dog trained in Shutzhund or French Ring. Sport dogs are totally different from Personal Protection dogs. Pet dog breeders DO NOT sell protection dogs and a fru-fru show dog couldn't even dream of doing the task
