So you have a resource guarder? Welcome. You are in a safe space and I won’t be telling you to correct your dog for "bad behavior" or to merely eliminate the thing they are guarding from your home, or worse, to rehome them because you have kids. Resource guarding can be fixed. There are many things that attribute to resource guarding; genetics, upbringing/history, current life situation, diet etc. Resource guarding comes from a place of insecurity and a concern of basic needs not being met, thus "I must guard what is mine". We do it daily. We lock our car doors, our houses and set alarms at night, we engage in monogamous relationships. We do these things because it is an revolutionary necessity to protect what is ours and keep these things safe. We have emotional attachments to people and things, and dogs have these emotions, too!
Negative reinforcement and positive punishment methods like Prong/Shock collars, corrections and "Alpha Theory" based training should never ever be used when working with a dog that is guarding. This is extremely dangerous and causes behavior and warning signs to be suppressed. We like to say it takes the tick away from the time bomb, it will still eventualy explode. Our goal and mission is to get your dog to an emotional state where they do not feel the need to guard. If you are ready to take this next step together, sign up today!
