Cooper, 5 1/2 months old, starts our Freedom program in a couple weeks, but his owners were VERY concerned about his food aggression and needed help before the program started two weeks later. Cooper had actually bit both of his owners pretty badly when they got close to his food as he was eating.
This video shows the proper way to help a dog realize that there is a much better option than to act on aggressive impulse.
Within the time frame of about a half hour we helped Cooper realize that he can relax and that there are better options than guarding his food (guarding his food and growling at/biting anyone that came close).
Good job Cooper!!!
If you, or anyone you know, is experiencing this issue please give us a call… We would love to help!
*as always please do not attempt these techniques yourself without contacting a trained professional for help*
