Resource guarding prevention in puppies


Adam and Stella run Delders Dogs and provide training services, behaviour consults, puppy classes and online membership. Through their unique view on raising puppies and teaching owners they have prevented countless resource guarding issues and helped owners and their dogs live in harmony. Join them as they dive deep into this subject and talk about their experiences dealing with resource guarding cases and how to prevent it in puppies.


Resource guarding is one of the most common issues we get in puppy classes. Building confidence and overcoming reactivity is something we at Delders Dog pride ourselves on. We build confidence in puppies and owners week on week and vary rarely have any issues with reactivity or aggression. Resource guarding normally at a low level is something we see a lot in puppies, it’s a very natural but confusing behaviour for owners to deal with.
