  1. New dog is jealous/aggressive when cats receive treats or is interested in our food.

    Dog Training Forum
    Hi all, My new dog of 3 months has been doing great with our cats until last week when we had an incident. Sadie (dog) attacked Nala but didn't hurt her.

  2. Resource guarding only with other animals

    Dog Training Forum
    I have been dealing with my dog's resource guarding for sometime now and it is only getting to be more of an issue.

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I posted on here before about my Chorkie puppy (5lbs will turn 1 year old next week) and guarding certain items. I have been working with him for months and he is only getting worse. He used to guard only dentabones and natural bones. Despite me working with him using the "trade up" method...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    First time dog owner. Ok, so the title is an exageration, but I am having an issue with aggression in my Chorkie (all 3.5lbs of him). He is 7 months old and has begun showing what I understand to be a significant aggression problem. He growls over his food and preferred toys. The problem is...
