October is National Crime Prevention Month, and all throughout the month, the NCPC and its Celebrate Safe Communities co-sponsor, the Bureau of Justice Assistance at the U.S. Department of Justice, will be raising awareness about national crime trends and offering tips that emphasize effective crime prevention.
According to the Bureau of Justice Assistance Criminal Victimization report, Americans ages 12 and older experience over 17 million cases of household burglary, property theft, and motor vehicle theft annually. The NCPC says, “the most effective method of preventing theft is eliminating the opportunity.”
When it comes to “eliminating the opportunity,” we believe there is no better way to do this than with a personal protection dog.
A well-trained protection dog can help to deter all types of threats, including household burglary, property theft, and vehicle theft. These canines are trained to constantly be ready to handle any type of threat that presents itself. And depending on the level of protection dog you get, it may have received extensive fight training, meaning it could know fighting techniques to ensure victory over its attacker. Some protection dogs are even trained to handle multiple attackers simultaneously, and these dogs will defend you with their life, never giving up to protect you, your family, and your property.
Of course, it’s important that you make sure you choose a protection dog that comes from a world-class trainer. When you go with a proven trainer, you can rest assured that you have a dog that will provide the highest level of protection and safety for your entire family.
You should choose a trainer that has:
- Extensive protection dog training experience
- A proven track record of awards and wins in international dog training competitions
- Advanced knowledge in selecting the right protection dogs for training
Protection Dogs Offer a Family-Friendly Security Option
The one lesson that’s clear with National Crime Prevention Month is that you should think about crime deterrents for your residence and your family. When it comes to home security, you have several options, but not all of them will work for homes with acreage, children, or other factors. For example, a gun might seem like a good idea, but they require training, and there’s no guarantee you can access it in time during the event of a crime. Security systems, another popular option for home protection, don’t actually do anything to protect you in the event of a break in. They are designed to hopefully scare criminals away while also alerting the police, but is that enough to keep your family safe in the heat of the moment? What if someone has entered your property line, but not your home, and they are waiting for the lights to go out? Do they know how long it will take for help to arrive, and have they planned accordingly? The questions are endless on whether a security system or a gun could stop a thief in progress, and safety for your property and your family should not bring more questions than answers.
Protection dogs provide on-the-spot security and protection against all types of threats, acting as a personal body guard for your family. Criminals are known to stay away from homes and property that have a canine presence.
