Thanks to Barb Manson for sharing this easy to digest lesson about working with a dog who shows resource guarding behavior. Best to catch and correct these early on.
RESOURCE GUARDING: Refers to a dog showing a behavior like growling, nipping, etc. This is his way of warning others to keep away from a certain possession (resource.) A resource is often food, toys, a place or a person.
