How is the puppy around people outside of this scenario? Is he generally social around new people or fearful?
Are you training the puppy to bark when hes sees random people or is this a controlled training scenario using an agitator?
I would say that you need to first have the puppy confident and comfortable around people outside of a personal protection setting, if hes not already.
If you are only having a problem with fear during protection training scenarios, then you need to take seperate steps to increase his confidence with the agitator.
Let me know more specifics do that i can advise you properly.
If the problem is only during protection training, then please repost under the personal protection thread in the forum if you wouldnt mind 🙂
