1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Snarling and biting Empty
PostSubject: Snarling and biting   Snarling and biting EmptyTue Aug 13, 2019 5:25 am

I have a 5 month old husky dog. I've been taking care of him for three months.

Today I gave him an award food(dried calf larynx). I've never given before.

When I approached my dog, he began to growl. and tried to bite.

I wonder if I've been experiencing similar situation? how did you proceed. Sorry for my bad english.

Resource guarding. He is in fear that you are going to take it away and is willing to hold his ground against you for it. I tend to work with my dogs on leave it and also trade for things when I need to take something away from them. As in give some kind of high value quick to eat treat to lure them away from the longer lasting chew that they are wanting to guard if for some reason I need to pick it up. It's good to work with your dog on leaving things alone or giving up things when you ask so if they get a hold of something you absolutely don't want them to have then you can get it away from them. Often to work on this you make a trade for the chew for something small and fast to eat as you take the chew away, but then give the chew back so they get the understanding that you aren't always just taking things from them and never giving them anything.

^ everything she said. Smile

Is this dog yours? Or are you only taking care of him for a while?

Our dogs both did this when they were young. As an example of how important training them to let you take anything away or "leave it", ours got into something over the weekend and both had large pieces of plastic and were chewing on them. I was concerned they would swallow pieces. I reached in and grabbed all the pieces (I could tell they did NOT want me to, but that's normal). Then I gave them a treat.

yes my dog. it was similar when eating dry food.

I've fed him a couple of times and he's not snarling anymore. I can hold him when I want him.

But this is the first time he ate this prize food. as if he had found treasure.

That's exactly what happened.  He viewed that item as more important to him than allowing you near it.  He found his "precious".  jocolor  I'm the same way with chocolate chip cookies. Very Happy

You can use this knowledge during training.  Treats should be REALLY REALLY awesome (to them) so they are motivated to listen and learn.

Edited to add: Don't expect this to be a one-time deal. It might be, but it may take a while of consistent training to overcome this issue.
