The price for dec guard dog is c.r.a.z.y!
Moguls and celebrities now routinely pay $40,000 to $60,000 for a well-bred German shepherd that is certified as an expert in the sport of Schutzhund, which means “protection dog.”
The price can go much higher if a dog does well at an international championship.
Julia, a 3-year-old German shepherd, was sold by a trainer, Harrison Prather, and purchased by John Johnson for $230,000.
John has absolutely zero buyers remorse! According to him:
“She’s a top deal. She’s won awards. She looks at you, she’s got the most beautiful face. It’s the speed, the smartness, the quickness — and you would not believe the roughness that she has inside. She’s like a little pit bull when she bites. She has that model face, and then opens the gums up and lets you have it.”
Mr. Johnson said he got his first protection dog after receiving personal threats while he was running the Northland Group, a debt-collection company in Minnesota that he founded and eventually sold three years ago.
It's seem the price for protection can only be as high as those needing it.
