Defense is still necessary for me and my dog

I have a 120 pound "CG" German shepherd. I have been blessed to have him for four years now. He is a very obedient dog, he loves to run around until he is so tired. He is so receptive to being controlled or disciplined because he is able to understand that there are expectations on him. He is well fed and pampered with the necessary toys, treats and medicines.

Recently, there have been many cases of robberies in our neighborhood. I plan to enroll him in a dog scholl so that he can learn the attack command. I have other reasons for wanting to have him learn the command. Are there any reasons why he should not be trained for this one ? Is it a dangerous move?

For a liberal family or a conservative one that allows kids to have any pet they want, safety and maintenace of the pet considerations are the talking points. But when a kid takes a snake for a pet, one can see reactions that this might not be a good choice. Yes, there are hundres of snakes that are poisonous, agressive and outright dangerous but there are some snakes species that are proven to be good as house pets for kids that are of the age ten and older.

A pet snake would certainly be one out of the ordinary. The coolness factor would be so high especially when the owner is allowed to bring his pet into his school.
