“Super” Pit Bull: Training The Ultimate Protection Dog | DOG DYNASTY
MARLON: If these dogs weren’t under control
they could absolutely kill a person.
COMM: This powerhouse of a pit bull is top
dog at Dark Dynasty K9s. Who specialises in
training elite protection dogs for the police
and millionaire clients around the world.
MARLON: It honestly feels like you’re getting
hit by an 85lb missile.
MARLON: How’s that for you Barcroft TV? You
like that s***?
MARLON: Compared to other pit bulls Ace is
absolutely a super dog.
COMM: Three-year-old Ace can run up the side
of buildings, leap into cars and even recognise
MARLON: This dog almost one in a million.
COMM: Ace is the culmination of three years
of hard work and dedication that began when
he was just a pup. The latest batch of puppies
to go through training are the offspring of
Ace’s cousin, the famous 175lb pit bull, Hulk.
COMM: These are the pups that I’ve uh picked
out and made my A Team. This is Dynasty right
here, this is Hercules right here.
LISA: Right now they’re still just cute, pudgy,
playful little puppies, in a year or so they’re
going to be badass protection dogs.
MARLON: Right now I’m just looking for basic
prey drive, which is dogs that want to chase
a ball. I’m making these dogs more trainable.
You also don’t want any other dog trying to
dominate them, because when you’re building
a protection dog they literally have to have
the biggest ego ever. You want him to literally
think he is unstoppable at every turn.
COMM: But not every puppy chosen can make
MARLON: I hope that I can get at least three
dogs, sometimes you get five, sometimes you
get one, sometimes you get none, and I mean
that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
COMM: If all goes to plan these two puppies
could be in the same league as Dark Dynasty’s
crown jewel, Ace.
COMM: Today Marlon is running Ace through
one of his regular training sessions, including
learning how to defend against intruders.
MARLON: Ace is probably one of the most muscular
dogs in the world right now and you’re not
seeing him in his best condition.
MARLON: If I wasn’t in the suit the dog could
absolutely do severe damage, I mean there
could definitely be a fatality from this if
it was wrong.
COMM: Ace has been trained to recognise hand
guns and act appropriately when they’re drawn.
He even has the ability to scale the size
of buildings and enter through second floor
MARLON: They’re not poodles y’know, these
are gladiator type dogs so they need to release
this intensity, that’s why we put so much
emphasis on picking the perfect dog, on selecting
the perfect dogs that are balance, that are
not just gonna go AWOL one day y’know because
these dogs 100% balanced.
COMM: And the trust the family has with their
dogs will soon be tested to the limit as Lisa
is pregnant with their second child.
LISA: It’s definitely a different kind of
household to bring up a kid and be pregnant.
I get followed around by the dogs a little
bit more, and y’know they always like to be
beside me now that I’m pregnant, making sure
I’m good. I’d feel totally with the baby around
the dogs. They’re very stable, balanced dogs,
they know it’s baby, they know to be gentle,
it’s just like a puppy.
MARLON: I wouldn’t change a thing, I love
her to death, I love my kid and I love my
whole staff, every single one of my dogs.
Y’know we’re trying to defy the odds man and
just do what everybody says you can’t do.
