Food and Resource Guarding

piggyYour dog growls or shows his teeth when you approach his dinner or when he has his beloved plush? You are scared he will eventually bite? We can definitively help.

Guarding is a normal behavior in dogs. After all, their ancestors had no choice and had to be pros at guarding in order to survive. Between dogs, when no injuries are involved and rather fall under “negotiating”, we can let it go. But normal does not mean that we like our pet growling when we approach the food bowl or snarling if we try to take his favorite toy or bone.

We will help you teach your pet that when someone removes his most valuable prize (and the “his” is important here!) it is actually a good thing. Let’s teach them that in exchange, only good things will happen.
