Resource Guarding

Resource guarding is the aggressive guarding of an item . This can be food , toys,  beds , furniture , people ,  even  doorways . Resource guarding is the cause of most dog to dog aggression and some aggression of dogs to people .

Some trainers are still telling people to take food away from their dogs. This is a recipe for getting bitten!  Just don’t .

What we want to do is teach the dog that  there is no need to guard  an item .

Regardless of the cause  of  resource guarding or the  item  being guarded ,  it is usually easily resolved and  can be  prevented  from occurring  in the first place,  with a  little understanding  of the problem  from the dog’ s perspective and how to give the dog a better option.
