I see more and more groups and posts on facebook from people wanting to train the dog they already have or puppy they will get, to be a personal protection dog
I think its very important for people to understand that majority of dogs will not protect, no matter what training you put on them, as suitability mostly depends on gnetic qualities to begin with
your overly social and happy, lick everybodys face dog will most likely never protect nothing regardless what training you put into it
so get informed, find trustworthy people/trainer that can help you select the right dog, and do the right work
high drive is NOT desirable for real world protection, civil agression and territorial behaviour is, unless you want a deterrent, that will bark on command, that will work in most cases for the low IQ criminals
if you want something that will stand his ground when shit happens you need more than that

for humanity it took millennia of selection and development to start to receive desirable result - a type of dogs who will sacrifice own life to protect human and only a decade to screw-up and wipe off all previous achievement.

personal protection role must be founded on level of dog's intelligence, beefed with physical and temperamental characteristic of that dog.
PP dog in fact means some degree independence and freedom for dog in assessing situation and according actions.
and you're very much right - such dogs always was hard to find even back in time when approach in breeding was much different that now.
