HELP WITH DOG RESOURCE GUARDING
Vitas came back for his next steps. We’re continuing to work on his resource guarding.

And here’s some info on Dog Resource Guarding, along with a video with simple steps to help your dog get over mild food guarding. Even if your dog does not guard his food at all, this is still a great exercise to practice with him so that he continues to have no issues with anyone approaching him while he’s eating.
