I was recommended to these forums by a friend. I'm having some aggression issues with my Pembroke Corgi. She's 2 and I've had her since she was 8 weeks.
I've got two current issues going on, that I think are part of one major problem involving Resource Guarding.
Occasionally, we have issues with a toy/food she does not want to drop - and there I'll get some growling and snapping. This week a "disagreement" about running around the house with my underwear ended with me getting bitten during a warning snap. But the larger issues on the whole for me, is that she guards me as well. I'm single, and we are together the majority of the time. I never thought that would be an issue, but it's turned into one. If we are at the dog park, and a dog comes up to me - she comes over to jump on my lap in the way of the offending dog. Occasionally, there is some snapping but we've been slowing working on a "share" command. This use to be a very limited issue, but now it's turned into family dogs being included. None shall pass! Even more recently, I had a guy over I have been seeing and even him coming close to me, resulting in my dog jumping on the ottoman barking at us. I know some people will regard that as a a jealously issue, and I thought so myself at first..but I think this has more to do with me being another one of her
Not really sure what to do, or how to start handling this issue....
