Resource Guarding by Fear Free Pets and Kenneth Martin, DVM, DACVB

Teach children to respect your furry companion's space. If a dog is resting, sleeping, or eating, please do not disturb the dog. Let's leave each other's toys and foods alone. We want our furry companions to see us as "givers" not takers to prevent resource guarding.
