Resource guarding is often best handled by changing the conversation. If the dog resource guards its bed, then put the bed in a crate and leave the dog alone when the dog is in the crate. If the dog resource guards toys (with other dogs) then no toys can be out when the dogs are out together. If the dog resource guards toys with you, work at the Trade Game (trade for what the dog has with something the dog puts greater value on.. like food for a ball). If the dog resource guards its food bowl, feed the dog by itself in a room or crate with the door shut (I think all dogs should eat by themselves and be left alone when eating).

Here is a video about resource guarding food bowl. This man (Dave Kroyer) knows more about dogs than just about anyone I can think of off hand.
