resource guarding

  1. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    We have a 5 month old male that really is a great dog. Very calm and obedient by puppy standards. However, he has a resource guarding issue with ONLY things he snatches that he shouldn't have. Most commonly a cookie/cracker wrapper left around by the kiddos. We have read a lot online regarding...
  2. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hello! I'm new to the forum and a new Golden Retriever owner, so I have some questions regarding my puppy's behavior and whether or not anyone else has experienced this. He's almost 4 months old now, and he definitely has normal puppy play biting behavior, but sometimes he gets a little over...
  3. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey guys! So for the most part things have gone really well with my English springer spaniel Roxy who is 6 and our Golden Retriever puppy Cleo who is about 7 months old now. They play constantly and are really close, they snuggle together and have really bonded. But we had an incident on...
  4. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi Golden Lovers, I've had Sadie since she was 8 weeks and today I gave her a new chew. I've been looking for something that keeps her busy for awhile and is tasty as well. These chews are pricey and I was curious how long one would last with her aggressive chewing. I walked over to her after...
  5. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I'm a little concerned that Roxy, our English Springer Spaniel, is starting to show some resource guarding behaviors when Cleo, our 4.5 month old golden, and her are playing. They play a lot, and get along wonderfully. But I've seen some behaviors out of Roxy that I don't like when it comes to...

  7. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone! I just introduced bones/chews to my 4 month old golden puppy this week and have had some problems with potential resource guarding. I bought a new chew with chicken (his first meat chew) in the center and went to take it out of his mouth when I noticed he had started eating it (I...
  8. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hey everyone. On Monday morning (two days ago), our 6 mo. old GR Charlie was taken to the vet to be neutered. It was a pretty fast procedure, and the vet said everything went well and that he did great when we picked him up later that day. We got him home, and he seemed kind of dopey and...
  9. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I have an 11 week old golden retriever puppy. He's very cute, pretty intelligent and social. He's been a lot of work too! It feels like I spend 90% of the time I am with him working on something (his play biting is very rough, but getting better, although I have already have a couple of scars...
