For this Omaha dog training session we go over tips to stop a dog from growling when its near its food to help 1 year-old Cockapoo Marley.

Marley graduated from our Puppy Classes so we moved through this session faster than others with a good portion of it being a refresher of many of the tips that we cover in puppy class.

The primary dog behavior problem the guardian wanted help with was how to stop the dog from growing or lunging at her when eating or near his food. Its not unusual for a dog to growl when it is near or in possession of a high value item like food, even if its not desireable. I made sure to explain thata growl is not aggressive, its a warning. You never want to punish or correct a dog from growling as many stop warning and instead move straight to a bite.

I decided to show the guardian an easy way to get a dog to stop growling at people when it eats its food. You can learn how to teach a dog to stop growling at people during meals by watching the free positive dog training video below.

Training a dog to stop growling at people when its eating isnt hard, in fact anyone can do it. Even if you aren’t a professional Cockapoo dog trainer. By using positve reinforcement, it wont take long for Marley to see his human approaching as a good and positive thing. Once this is the case, the dog will stop growling or disagreeing at humans during meal time.

I don’t think I have filmed a free video on how to stop a dog from growling at people when its eating so I very much enjoyed doing this session. If the guardian practices this technique every meal for a week or so, it shouldnt take long for the dog to stop growling. Its a really easy and effective way to stop dog growling.

To help the guardian remember all the positive dog training tips I shared with her in this in home Omaha dog training session, we recorded a roadmap to success video that you can watch below.
