My 1 year old Labrador just started displaying resource guarding with food and certain treats and it has me really concerned. It’s disappointing. I’m trying to tell myself it’s a natural instinct but still. I’m trying to work on it.

I really don't understand why you just don't leave the dog alone while he's eating. Would you like it if you're in a restaurant and after each bite the waiter comes and strokes your hair?

*This pup either has been around other dogs that taught him to protect his food.... but the fact that he peed which is a nervous sign makes me think more that someone has maybe disciplined him and made him afraid while eating.*

Why do owners always want to disturb a dog while he's eating? Give him the food and leave him alone for a while for crying out loud! You dont have to touch your pet every single second of the day! What would you say or do if someone wants to take your dish away while you're still trying to eat?

Gotta go super slow! Otherwise the results won’t stick, and it will be even harder to train him out of it bc you have “poisoned the cue”. She is right, you go too fast and it sets your dog up for failure.

That's my husband all over again. We hired a trainer a few days ago, but suddenly he knows better than the trainer. He wants to buy an E-collar and zap the dog into compliance so he doesn't have to get up off his butt and deal with her. Not happening.

I would encourage all dog owners to practice this, even when the dogs are super young and show no signs of aggression. If you just put the food down and walk away, dogs can easily learn that the room is their zone and they may feel like they need to protect the food they have. They need to get used to you around their food. I still feed my older dog in another room, but that's just to be precautionary. I think it's really easy for dogs to develop this type of aggression, especially ones that are super food-oriented which are most of them. Something that's worked for me is with my young puppy (he's 8 months but I started teaching him everyday when he was a month and a half), is to have him sit and look at me before meals. He came from a woman who had him eat out of a trough with many other puppies, so this was a bit challenging at first. I have him sit down behind the bowl, and I take my finger and point it to my eyes. I have the dogs stare at me until I release him. If he goes towards the food early, I have him sit back down and try again (he is perfect at it now). He gives me full eye contact. When I release him (i say "go ahead" and take the finger off of my eye) he is able to eat his food. Once he is eating his food which he does very quickly even with his slow feeder bowl, occasionally I will have a tasty vitamin or a treat in my hand, and I will put it in my bowl, making my dog notice that I put the treat in his bowl. When he was super young i did this everytime he ate. Just sticking my hand on the bowl, my fingers near his mouth, moving his food around. I want him to know that i can be anywhere when he is eating. Almost like it's my food too. And when I come near him, he knows that sometimes I'm CONTRIBUTING to his food. He knows that I am not a threat, gets used to me, and knows that I'm in charge. I GIVE him his food. This is extremely important and isn't talked about enough.

Tip: When your puppy’s young, grab a handful of his food, and let him eat out of your hand while you slowly drop it back into the bowl. Do this once a day for a little while, and they won’t be possessive at all!! It worked for my Mastiff, and all of my grandma’s dogs.

If you know how to train dogs, then you’re a dog trainer. She knows how to train dogs so she is a trainer. If you think all the things she does are common sense, then take it as a sign that you probably also know how to train dogs.

I can understand being afraid of not being able to touch the bowl at all not even to just pick it up, but what I don't understand is why they weren't encouraged to leave the dog alone. I don't think I would want someone standing over me or touching me while I was trying to eat and I don't get why Victoria didn't tell them that. It's like the episode with the lady who was treating her dog like a cat, you kind of have to show the owners what they're doing to their pet and why it freaks them out, in order for some of these people to really get it, and I think this owner would have really benefited from having someone come up and attempt to take her dinner plate away and pet her head and stuff while she's eating. Owners need to know what they are doing to stress their pets out and I think that would have really opened this ladies eyes, but hey I'm not the expert here.

Am I the only one screaming at the screen saying "JUST LEAVE THE DAMN DOG ALONE WHILE HES EATING!.." What does this woman not get? Why does she feel the dire need to touch the dog while its eating all the time? I don't get it. Put the bowl down and go away.. Carry on with life, Simple.

My dog does not pee, but she does guards her food. I trained her that food is safe, but her snacks are still needing guarding (she had to fight to eat in her prior home) I used a similar technique, but started petting her butt as she ate, then kept moving up to the head so that when kids came over, they didn't get bit from her guarding

So let's be clear Victoria assessed the level and severity of food guarding prior to setting up this exercise. If you have a dog that has a hairpin trigger in reactivity this would be very dangerous. One of my rehabilitation dogs is not only uncomfortable in being pet without food around but he is also severely food reactive. He has gone after my crutch and my prosthetic leg just for being near him. Obviously I used non-human body parts to test his reactivity. Therefore this exercise would need to be modified for a dog of this severity. As I tell any of my clients before you take an exercise in behavior modification from a video online you should consult a trainer in your area because you can do more harm than good if you implement the wrong technique and you can put yourself and your dog at risk in doing so

It’s undeniable that the dog is too food possessive, but the dog owners are absolutely clueless. How would you feel if someone at the dinner table, tried to grab your plate of food? When you tell a dog it’s ok to eat their food, don’t touch the f**king bowl. Seriously, why do you need to pet the dog when they’re eating? What about that seems logical to you, give the dog some damn space. I damn sure don’t want to be hugged or rubbed when I’m eating tf.

I was so afraid of my puppy growing up to be food aggressive. I followed Cesar Milan’s tips and exercises to prevent this and now my dog does fine. I feel like this is one of the most important things to teach a puppy. It can be very dangerous especially if there are children and babies in the home.

Another owner (ie. LaToya), who thinks they look cute by trying to show Victoria up. Maybe they think they'll get their own show by proving Victoria wrong! NOT! Victoria's the best. I like Damien. He didn't come off as a know-it-all. He put his dog's well being first.

When I used to have dogs, they were the family dogs, the only time they did something like that is when they were still puppies and we're still in training, but they eventually stopped doing that, it was also the first time we brought them home and they weren't THAT comfortable with us yet but they did get to that point to where they knew that snapping was a no no
