German Shepherd Personal Protection Dogs PricingAll of our family and executive protection dogs are imported from Europe and come from the top breeders in Europe. Because of the number of dogs that we import, we have access to the kennels that most other protection dog businesses do not. We train high-level, real-life protection dogs, not sport dogs or basic guard dogs. All Citadel dogs complete our finishing training and testing before we offer them to the public for sale. We will allow clients to reserve a dog, but we will not deliver the dog until the training is complete. Our trainers deliver each protection dog to the new owner and teach the owner how to handle their new protector. Just like we will not deliver an untrained dog, our trainers will not leave the dog with the new owner until the new owner has been fully trained as well.
