Personal Protection Training

Personal protection training starts with an assesment of your dogs temperament. Because of the nature of this training all dogs must have a high level of obedience before beginning protection work. Teaching your dog protection the right way will leave you with a sensible steady family member who can take care of your guarding needs. Triann Shepherds does on occassion offer fully trained protection dogs for sale.

Movie Acting Classes

Because movie work is such a big part of what we do, we have decided to offer classes that cover the specific needs of the movie business. You and your dog will be taught the skills that you need to have in order to work in this demanding industry. Your dog will learn how to hit a mark, work with hand signals, "go with" the actor while still listening to the handler. In addition we will help proof your pet to the hustle and bustle of the movie set. Because the skills and tricks will differ from animal to animal we only offer K-9 acting training one on one.
