I agree with Jax that trying to figure out all the "why does my dog do this" has limited value. Sometimes we never really know. Resource guarding just needs to become a non-issue. Yes, your boyfriend needs to be trained but they seldom do well taking directions from their sweetheart. Your trainer needs to take him aside and say, "I said it was best to leave your dog home for awhile to let him adjust, but you took him out...how did that work for you?" We learn from trial and error. Glad you reached out. I think a comfortable muzzle is a good precaution, too.

We're not looking into theories. I only included the information in case it might be relative to you needing to know. I do have a muzzle for both dogs, I'm working on padding them so they're comfortable and won't break the skin or rub. In any case, you all have agreed that we are on the right path, with no additional advice, which is what I came here for.

Thank you all.

Also agree with Sabi and Jax08. Definitely resource guarding you. We had a Chi that resource guarded my Grandma for 18 years. Nothing bad ever happened to that dog. It was super tough on everyone and never addressed.

Find an experienced trainer. If you do rehome definitely make sure it is a home where they understand what is REALLY going on and will also follow up with a trainer.

I gave you advice, you just didn't like it.
I agree with some of your friends advice, not all, and the theories are senseless.
This dog needs to learn NILIF and your boyfriend needs to get on board. This dog is headed for disaster.

Resource guarding is a survival instinct. It's in every dog in different degrees and presents in different ways. Your dog has anxiety that causes it to overreact. Concentrate on that.
