So mylittle 3mth old monster has been chewing rawhide bones since the day we got her, but tonight, she got INSANE over the bone & started growling, showing teeth & tried to bite me!!! Is thisevidence of terrible things to come? I have never ever had a little puppy show such crazy tendancies…any advice about how to stop that immediately???
The very first dog my parents had was a golden/lab mix, and he was the sweetest dog ever. But whenever they gave him a rawhide bone, he got CRAZY protective over it and started growling and all that. They just refrained from giving him rawhide bones and he was fine. Is your pup like that with all toys or just rawhides?
Resource guarding should be adressed immediatly. Taking the object from her is only a temporary fix. The behavior is conerning in itself. “Claiming” your space and everything in it is important. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating strong handed methods. Simple assertivness is the best way to do this in my opinion. A calm but firm approach, with positive reinforcement at the core of the training is always best. I would humbly suggest you study the issue of “Resource Guarding” and seek a long term solution. Pitbulls are smart and eager to learn. Good Luck. Hope you can get to the root of the problem.
