Just a thought on Resource Guarding
Now, please, stop and think for a minute. Did the dog really understand that that great tasting piece of chicken bone was off limits? Or is that just us as humans expecting dogs to know our rules without first teaching them. Could we instead have taught a reliable drop it command and practice with trading exercises so that the dog understands that there is no reason to be anxious or nervous around his good stuff because we never give him reason to be?
One last thing, just how smart is it to take things from your dog all the time just to prove you can? Didn’t we call those people bullies in school? As always all I want you to do is stop, think and then act. Sometimes the first thing we consider with a dog just plain don’t make sense 🙂
If you have questions or comments please let them fly, that is after all what this blog is all about….
