Let's work on resource guarding


Fife, Scotland
We still do feed separately most of the time

Problem is....they don't eat when separated. They both complain at their gates until "feeding time " is over and we let them together again. And both bowls are left full. Then they scavenge because they're hungry.

The only other way they eat is hand fed, during training sessions.

They just don't like being separated after the trauma of the 2week quarantine after shamas bit that dog...
I'm tempted to say.....who is the boss here? Who is setting the rules? You need to shape the behaviours that you want, and not compromise because it's easier, or dogs aren't playing the game.
