Dogs can be territorial, possessive, and protective of objects.
A common misconception is that a dog will only guard one thing, but this is not always the case. There are many reasons that lead to a dog guarding an object or person and it’s difficult for owners to know what triggers this behavior.
Why is my dog always guarding food or toys?
Resource Guarding is a more complex problem and can cover a broad range of objects guarded, varying from dog to dog. They may guard their food bowl, treats, toys, the bed or sofa, people, random objects, and the list goes on.
When we are helping clients with this problem, we want to determine what possible triggers may be present, the severity of the dog’s behavior, and the family dynamics involved. In addition, we like to assess what type of structure and consistency are present in the dog’s lifestyle. Sometimes adding training, consistency, and structure can make a huge difference in behavioral issues. Some behaviors may always be present to one degree or another and may require more management implemented into the dog’s lifestyle.

Great experience. Our adult dog needed some retraining and is doing much better. Megan worked with our hectic schedule which was very appreciated. I recommend giving them a try.
Highly recommend Dog Training personalized. They truly showed us how to interact with our 1 year old GSD. Megan was great at communicating with us and demonstrating how to best train our dog. Our dog is happier because of the training and now gets to go on regular walks without issues!
Contacting Dog Training Personalized was the best decision we made for training. From the consultation with Steve Dunham to the training with Sami Clark (she rocks!!), we were hooked. You will be too. Sami was very patient and loving with Crosley. Sami was able to train Crosley, and us, with all the commands needed to have a happily trained puppy family. Thank You!!
Megan is a very knowledgeable and patient. She taught us so much with our labradoodle puppy. She knows and loves dogs. We highly recommend her!
My 3 yr old Shepherd was with this facility for a 2 wk board and train. I can’t give trainer Megan, and the team at Dog Training Personalized enough praise, for the training outcome with my 3 yr old Shepherd. Megan was the main trainer for my Shepherd and my gosh! This girl has an unbeatable passion, talent and professionalism for training and towards the Canine. She went beyond just using tools and commands. She used the very approach that I find so important with training. She built a personal relationship, along with building a “working” relationship with my Shepherd. She accomplished in a limited time, what I was unable to do for years. I was amazed to watch, through updated videos and pics, how happy and eager he was to be working with Megan. Trust me when I say, it was difficult to be away from him, but Megan’s constant communication and updates through pics and videos gave me reassurance that he was with the right trainer, team and training facility. For me, seeing is believing. I would have “never” believed that he would be in a sit or down, that someone could not only walk away from him, but leave the room, out of sight, and he would remain until released. The entire facility was clean and sanitary. The staff was friendly and extremely knowledgeable, not only in “training” but the physiology of my breed. I was impressed with all of the team who help with his training. Each one off them, Megan, Sydney, Sami, (sorry, I’m sure that I have forgotten someone) brought their special talents during his training. Megan, put her heart into every moment she could, bringing the best out of Atlas while he was there. She accomplished every bullet point that I had concerns with or had ask for with his training. Most importantly, I was the one, as his handler, who needed the training. She continued to educated me, in many techniques and approaches with training. She helped with understanding the dogs thought process. Giving me a better understanding as to why and how, along with correctly handling and carry on, the training he learned. Trust me when I say, we are grateful for Megan and to this facility. Beth and Atlas
