In the first instance the protection dogs will try to deter a security breach by showing aggression and violent behaviour such as growling. Frequently this will eradicate the problem, however if the threat is not deterred by the warnings given by the protection dog or its owner, with or without command the dog will restrict the threat by biting and pinning them to the floor and then not releasing them till commanded to do so by the owner. When a threat has been counterbalanced the protection dog is trained to return back to being the friendly, family pet they are as soon as possible.

- Show of aggression on command
- On lead protection/ close quarters protection work
