Description

Product Description

Dogs that become demonic around the food dish, snarly on the sofa or grouchy when chewing on a bone are all too common. Here''s a step-by-step guide to help you recognize, evaluate and treat resource guarding in pet dogs.

Review

A totally comprehensive and practical treatment of a common and very serious behavior problem,. Jean Donaldson translates complex animal learning theory into usable procedures without sacrificing scientific accuracy. Anyone who works with dogs will benefit from reading Mine --Suzanna Hetts, PhD, author of Pet Behavior Protocols

Once I started reading it, it quickly became apparent that this book should be mandatory reading material for virtually every dog owner. Brenda s description of the canine language and the contexts in which they occur is very well documented. --Ali Brown, author of Scaredy Dog! Understanding & Rehabilitating Your Reactive Dog

From the Back Cover

A practical how-to guide on resource guarding - food bowl, object, bed, crate, owner, etc. - in dogs. Contents include: aggression basics, nature of resource guarding, kinds of resource guarding, behaviorist vs. medical models, recognizing guarding, prognosis, safety tools, treatment overview, management, desensitization and counterconditioning, resource sample hierarchies, generalization, troubleshooting, body handling desensitization, operant conditioning.

About the Author

Author Jean Donaldson has over 30 years experience in dog behavior and training. As the Founder and Director of the San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers, Jean leads a new generation of dog trainers to better understanding of the research and science of canine behavior. Jean s award winning book, The Culture Clash, is a pivotal book in the dog trainer s library because it called into question many sacred assumptions about the origins of behavior and behavior problems. Jean lives in the San Francisco area with her Chow Chow, Buffy.

This book was impossible to get through. The author apparently thought she was writing The Great American Novel, and was so ridiculously over-written that i could not get through the book. For example "The low, thunderous rumbling that emanates from the dogs thorax region..." Um...just say "growling". The entire book was like that, to the point where all it did was aggravate to the point where I just put it down. There may very well be some good info in there, but you have to dig through the wanna-be Shakespeare to find it. I''d recommend "Multiple Dog Household: A Guide to Training and Problem Solving". I learned from that book what I hoped to learn from this one. Save your money folks.

Good for Dog-Human Resource Guarding Not for Dog-Dog Resource Guarding
Reviewed in the United States on July 14, 2016
This book focuses mostly on dogs that guard resources *from humans*. I wanted help with a dog that guards resources (toys, treats, even me) from other dogs.

While this book is clearly written for dog training professionals, as a first time adult dog owner, I was easily able to read it and formulate a training plan for my dog to help with his owner guarding. I found nothing about this book that was all that hard to get through and all animal behavior phrases were explained. I appreciated the background behind where the behavior stems from, other associated behavior problems, and why we train it the way we do. All-in-all, I have found this book extremely helpful. This is resource guarding from humans. If your dog resource guards from other dogs, then you want her book "Fight!" which I also plan to order.

This book was recommended to me by a training organization. It was written in a rather technical style, like other reviewers said, but I didn''t find it hard to get through. It''s a short book - just over 100 pages - but I felt it covered a lot. It lays out a plan of attack for most resource guarding types. Unfortunately for me, it did little more than aknowledge that the resource can be the owner(s). I''m sure this book would be a great tool for other owners/trainers, but my rescue pup''s prized resource is my husband and me.

The definitive guide to resource guarding in dogs. This book is a bit technical, but is accessible to the lay reader. Both theory and practical applications are discussed, including difficult topics like working with children. The only thing missing from this book is dog-dog resource guarding (which is covered in Donaldson''s book "Fight!", however the clever reader can figure out how to apply the basic principles covered to include dog-dog interactions. This book is a must-have for any aspiring dog trainer!

I read the reviews prior to purchasing this book and while all my instincts told me not to, I did anyway our of desperation. We were just about ready to rehome our pup. Most of the jargon in unnecessary and a waste of time reading. The meat of it all is unrealistic unless you have all you waking hours to do what it says and then it''s still ridiculous and unsafe when you have a resource guarder. I found the answer in an E-collar. In literally 3 days I had a different doggo!!! Just save yourself the money and anguish trying to read thru this book.

I''ll agree that the writing style was unnecessarily dry and technical at points, but I would still give this book an enthusiastic five star rating on the basis of its content, ignoring the style. My dog has had very mild dog/dog resource-guarding problems since she was about eight months old. She''d never snap or actively chase a dog off, but she would hunker down over her items and growl like a chainsaw until the other dog went away. Around a month ago, as she neared three years of age, it suddenly intensified. She started charging toward her brother, who became very cautious in her presence.

Last week, I watched her as she ate her breakfast. She took not a single bite for thirty minutes because she was too busy death-glaring at her brother, whom she could see from the corner of her crate window. Her brother was not interested in her food or her crate; he wasn''t even facing in her direction. But she couldn''t take her eyes off him long enough to eat. It just about broke my heart to see her in that much distress. I bought Mine! and read it in a single sitting, then reread it a day later to make sure I''d grasped the specifics (as an added note, I''ve worked in the pet industry for years and have trained dogs professionally, so most of this was not new material for me). I know that results mid-session after the dog has figured out the game rarely correlate to a "cold trial" at a later point, but it was so incredibly encouraging to see my girl calmly allowing my boy to approach her food bowl, sniff it and back away. As an added bonus, it seems to be really improving their relationship. Their play has always been safe and free of guarding incidents, but there was a pushy tension in it before that has almost disappeared since we started the training described in this book.

I definitely intend to continue using these methods on my own dogs until the resource-guarding clears up, and I''m glad to have a book that I can recommend to my training customers when they come to me with guarding-related questions. If you''re reading these reviews, you''re interested in buying the book. If you''re interested in buying the book, you probably need it. It''s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

Ordered this book on same day delivery, arrived promptly. Unwrapped it and left it on the coffee table to read. Dog picked it up and resource guarded it and ripped it to shreds before I could retrieve remnants. So now I’ll never know how to stop him resource guarding...!

Uninspiring
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 4, 2019
This is like reading an essay. Poor and impractical advice for anyone who has no prior experience of a dog with guarding behaviour. I persevered with reading this but did not implement any of the ideas as they were not appropriate in a family home.

A great book for anyone with resource guarders, or those generally interested in dog training to read. Doesn''t waffle on and has clear guidance on how to combat dogs with resource guarding issues. Highly recommend.
