The super-rich take security very seriously, and they’re willing to spend a fortune to feel safe. In some cases, that means investing in highly trained super-dogs that cost more than a house.
With a single command, these four-legged bodyguards can go from cute and cuddly to a bad guy’s worst nightmare.
The price of this unique protection can be as much as $230,000.
“Our clients range from executives, to professional athletes and lots of women who are home alone quite a bit,” says November Holley, president of Harrison K-9, an Aiken, South Carolina-based company that imports and sells “executive protection dogs,” as she refers to them.
After about two years of daily training in Germany, Harrison K-9 imports the elite guard dogs to the U.S. The company hand-selects each pooch for obedience, the ability to track scents, response to on-command attack cues and more. The animals then receive six to 12 more months of rigorous training on the ground in Aiken.
