May 23

6:00 pm PT


Out of all the “types” of aggressive behaviors in dogs, resource guarding is one that has so much conflicting advice available online, it can be difficult for pet owners to wade through the sea of information (or misinformation!). Yes, “peeing on your dog’s toys” is just one of the misguided (and gross!) recommendations out there on the Internet.

In this presentation, Michael will dispel some of the common, and not so common misconceptions related to resource guarding behavior. He will also highlight effective behavior change strategies and include several case studies with video demonstrating progress from start to finish.
