Teach Your Dog to Share

Resource guarding is a common issue in companion dog households, and it is also totally normal. Keeping access to resources is a great survival strategy - there’s nothing wrong with dogs wanting to keep what they like: food, their people, or locations and even doggy friends. The problem is a matter of degree, for example when dogs bite or threaten with aggression to keep those resources.

How often dogs have to practice resource guarding influences how volatile it becomes. How often they are challenged for resources equals how hard they have to fight to keep them.

In this video, Diane Garrod shares clear step-by-step approaches to working with resource guarding. While it can be challenging process, in some ways, resource guarding can be the easiest kind of aggression to address, and can be highly rewarding for everyone.

On-demand. Recorded live November 11, 2020.

Did you know that many common techniques (like showing the dog who's boss) can actually make your dog more aggressive?

  • Safe and Practical

    If you have a dog who is guarding at home, the first thing you probably want is for the biting or aggression to stop.

    The second thing is to make sure it doesn't happen again in the future. That can be done systematically, without force or intimidation.

I had hoped to watch live in Zoom, but it did not work out. I was able to watch streaming and grateful for the ability to take part even around the world from the participants. As technology evolves with our ever-changing world, we will get more polished in our abilities to smoothly broadcast, so please be patient with the process. This webinar is worth it, and the information about resource guarding gave me the encouragement I needed to continue the process. I look forward to many other webinars. Thank you to all participants!
