Resource guarding


I write this because just this morning i spoke to someone who was bitten by their dog, the dog will lose it’s home and is in danger of euthanasia. Imagine someone Repeatedly Taking Your Valuables! Then acting like you did something wrong! Would you fight back? PLEASE DO NOT PULL ITEMS OUT OF YOUR DOGS MOUTH! This Does NOT teach them drop or give. They Do Not understand Our “Attacks” on them. It frightens them and is a Common CAUSE of Resource Guarding. Also Do Not take their food bowl to “show them who’s boss” Do Not even Pull toys out of their mouth. These maneuvers only Teach your dog to hang on Tighter. LEARN How to Teach Let Go. Here’s a link for a good start about handling resource guarding. https://yourdogsfriend.org/help/resource-guarding-growling/
