The Defence and Attack Dog
Attack is the best form of Defence. This assertion most often refers to a military strategy when it is believed that a pre-emptive strike is the best way to defend oneself.
However, in the world of the working dog operational matters can be somewhat different to the military objective. In the civilian theatre the title given to the Defence and Attack Dog may simply be the ‘Personal Protection Dog’ - such dogs may be trained to attack, not only in response to a command but also intuitively in furtherance of inferred provocation.
