I've found that he does not like the dog spray that we have and whenever I'm holding it he just backs away. So now there is one in each room until he gets the idea lol but I do love him to bits
Skadi adores being sprayed with a spray bottle and loves the taste of bitter apple. Lol she is a tough cookie. Grim is a breeze by comparison.

I wish I could fit a crate in my car... but I have a Toyota Yaris sedan and there is no way... I need to buy a topper for my truck and that will make taking her to work easier. I just can't see leaving her in her crate all day, so in the car she goes!

glowingtoadfly Some people would have given up on my dog, in fact someone already did before we brought her home. Gee, GTF, good job not giving up on your dog and trying to treat resource guarding, which isn't a corrections issue, properly by offering high value treats to your dog. Thanks, boomer11. I have done my research about how to treat this issue. Back on topic please.

Lol. I should never have let her play tug with her brother with loose socks. Now, they are a Resource! Worth defending and pulling off my feet for a nice game of tug!

glowingtoadfly Skadi ate our couch cover, and is currently attempting to eat a sleeping bag with some success. She also resource guards the sleeping bag so I have to distract her sassiness with treats when she does it. She is a real little challenge, although she is starting to settle down. She still has her days. Like today, when she resource guarded my sock while it was still on my foot, then tugged it off and pranced about with it. I was able to prevent it from happening twice with a stern NEIN. The mouthing has settled down though.

Same problem

Jax has just turned 10 months and is always really jumpy when we come home, I thought it might be because he gets left on his own but we put him in our bedroom with a bowl of water and all his fave toys and when we return he's just asleep on the bed but then goes mad trying to lick us and jump up us, he mouths also, nothing hard but it's frustrating.

SunCzarina It's a tough stage. Just stay consistent. Otto ate seatbelts too. Venus ate everything.
