Resource Guarding in Dogs, Dedicated Dog Training Can Help You!

Resource guarding in dogs is often looked upon through the wrong lenses.  Many pet dog owners are trying to “FIX” their dog’s resource guarding aggression.  In other words, they want to eradicate the dog aggression.  Regrettably, resource guarding in dogs is very rarely eliminated to the point that many dog owners are seeking.
As with any type of true dog aggression, your main goal should be to better control the aggression to reduce or eliminate physical injury through biting.  More specifically, with resource guarding in dogs the focus should be on how to properly be able to reclaim items that your dog should not have or can pose potential danger to them, without getting bit.

At times, when you maintain consistency via our dog management system, you may observe your dog behaving the way you like with less and less guidance; however, this should be a bonus, NOT a goal.  

Below are some questions that you may find helpful in determining whether or not our program can provide the same benefit as it has for many other pet owners that have had issues with their dog’s resource guarding.

Can resource guarding in dogs be fixed ?

In our experience, true aggression, which includes resource guarding in dogs is very rarely eradicated.  Instead, it is properly managed to help reduce the frequency of potential physical injury to either a dog or human. 

Can you help with dog to dog resource guarding?

Many times dogs exhibit resource guarding only to other dogs and not people.  We can help with this too!  

FREE Tip: Do not leave bones, food, toys, clothes (socks) or other items out & for food aggression, feed separately.
