Kiki Sable and Murdock scaled - An Easy Way to Stop a Puppy From Resource Guarding Food From Other Dogs

For this Omaha puppy training session we worked with 3 dogs (from left) Kiki a 6 month-old Great Pyrenees mix, Murdock a 9 year-old Lab mix and Sable, a 3 legged Husky; sharing tips to stop resource guarding in dogs.

After sharing several dog behavior tips on exercise, rules, structure and motivation, we were ready to address the puppy’s resource guarding problem. Stopping rescource guarding in dogs and puppies is all about helping the dog understand you (or the dog in this case) is not out to steal its stuff. You can learn how to stop a dog from resource guarding its food from another dog by watching the free positive dog training video below.

This is an easy way to stop a puppy from resource guarding, but it takes discipline. You need to go at the dog’s pace as if it reacts at all, it means the humans pushed too close to quickly. Esstentially this secret to stopping dog resource guarding is all about practicing something good happening when the other dog approaches.

Id like to see the guardians practice this way of stopping a dog from resource guarding for each meal for a week or two. That way, Kiki will see Sable’s arrival as a good thing to look forward to and hopefully stop resource guarding for good.

To help the guardians remember all the positive dog behavior tips we shared in this in home Omaha dog training session, we filmed a roadmap to success summary video that you can watch below.
