What is Dog Food Guarding?
Dog food guarding, also known as resource guarding, is a natural behaviour stemming from a dog’s instinct to protect its food as a valuable resource. It can manifest as growling, snapping, or even biting when approached while eating. This behaviour can concern the pet parent and pose potential risks in a multi-pet household or around children.
