The pandemic has resulted in many more households adopting and rescuing pets. With more people working from home, the interest in adding a pet to the household has significantly increased. Dog Trainers and Behavior Consultants are slammed with cases from newbie pet owners to dogs biting in the home. Shelters and rescue groups have been working double time to match families with dogs in need while trying to offer post-adoption support at a rate higher than ever before. We thought this would be a good time to talk about shelter behavior with Trish McMillan in a 3-part webinar series. With two decades of involvement in animal sheltering in three countries, including nearly 8 years with the ASPCA, Trish has worked with a wide variety of shelter behavior issues. Her shelter work includes intakes, enrichment, rehabilitation, assessment, adoptability criteria-setting, and post-adoption support. Part 1: Biting the hand that feeds you Working with resource guarding in dogs Why do some dogs just let you approach their food bowls or take things out of their mouths, and others growl, snap or bite? We will review what research has been done on this common dog behavior, and bust some of the myths that you might have heard. Most importantly, we will go over techniques that can be used to teach dogs that we are actually no threat when we approach them when they have a coveted resource.
