Personal Protection Dogs

Nothing in this world is more important than your family’s safety.

Nothing in this world is more important than your family’s safety. The addition of a personal protection dog to your family will give you peace of mind and the ultimate in safety.

A common misconception is that a personal protection dog is an aggressive dog. Nothing could be further from the truth.

A personal protection dog has a stable temperament- gentle, loving. He is safe around other pets, children and your friends.

With a personal protection dog trained at Animal Psychology Center you can count on him/her being an affectionate, loyal and loving member of your family. Always well mannered, these dogs have the ability to discern threats (someone who means you harm and/or has bad intentions) from non threats (someone who is a friendly stranger). Our dogs are trained on intention. They are capable of protecting your family in any situation. A personal protection dog is ever vigilant so you can enjoy a sense of comfort and security. The mere presence of personal protection dog is a significant deterrent to would-be assailants.

What is peace of mind worth? What is your family’s safety worth?

Give us a Call at 605-390-7295 Animal Psychology Center and we can discuss your options for a personal protection dog today. Our training center is in Philip, SD, and our trained personal protection dogs are often purchased by individuals and families living in neighboring states, including North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Minnesota, Illinois, and Iowa.

Thanks to our shipping partners, our personal protection dogs can also be delivered nationwide.

    Animal Behaviorist
    Animal Psychology Center in Philip, South Dakota, is a pet psychology center owned by animal behaviorist and trainer, Katherine Andrews. Services and training are available in Rapid City, SD, and many desperate owners have traveled in from other states for her specialized expertise.

    My passion is to train and rehabilitate dogs with behavioral issues. Some even call me a "dog whisperer" thanks to my ability to work through particularly tough behavior problems and help with aggressive dogs, even when other trainers have failed and owners have nearly given up.

    Through my early love for animals, I developed it into a lifetime career and commitment. Backed with 20 years of animal training experience, I take pride in making life better for people and pets through my animal psychology services.
