The Resource Guarding Guide - Are you afraid of your own dog when it comes to resources like food, toys, or even certain areas of the house that your dog protects?

Have friends or trainers told you to re-home your dog due to it's behavior?

Has the advice you've been given before not worked, or even made things worse? A common "solution" to resource guarding is the "swap" method. Give your dog a higher value item and trade them for whatever object they are guarding. Seems to make sense, right? Except all you are actually doing is REINFORCING the guarding behavior. Think about it: the dog is growling or guarding something, then you show up with a high value reward and technically reinforce the behavior by rewarding the act of guarding.

    Millions of dog owners struggle with resource guarding. You don't have to be one of them.

    We see it all the time, and so many of our clients come to us still struggling even after following such advice to no avail. Resource guarding is a behavioral problem that millions of dog owners struggle with. It can quickly turn your amazing pet into a terrifying occupant of your home, and nobody should live that way with their dog. Especially when there are solutions out there that actually work!

    I have rehabbed thousands of resource guarding dogs that were literally destroying their families lives. After the proper training and the right methodology, these dogs are back in their homes, safe, happy and enjoying life. It does not take years, months, or even weeks to accomplish this either. Many of the dogs I have worked with stop resource guarding in their very first session. I have a tried and true solution to this problem, and I can't wait to share it with you.

    Meet Your Instructor

    Hi, my name is Jeff Gellman, owner of Solid K9 Training. I've been training dogs for over twenty years, and I also hold dog training seminars around the world. Throughout my career, I have worked with tens of thousands of dogs and humans, and I know firsthand how lack of training can affect the quality of life for both ends of the leash. Between my free social media content, virtual one-on-one work, seminars, and in-person training, I have kept countless dogs in their homes who were on their last chance. 

    I have always wanted to find a way to help EVEN more families and their dogs. There is such a need for dog training that works, and so I created this course. My Green to Graduate series addresses one of the most common pain points I see people struggling with- lack of training overall! So many folks are struggling to get their dogs to do the basics, so I wanted to create a course that truly covers it all.

    But it doesn't have to be that way...

    Imagine if you could stop resource guarding altogether and get that level of trust back with your dog. Imagine not having to worry about what or when your dog might guard an object. I know it's not fun for anyone having to live on edge like that all the time. 

    If you're ready to take control of your house again AND build a healthy relationship with your dog in the process, then the Resource Guarding Guide is for you.

    I'm sure you've got questions. Here are the answers to many of the most common questions we get asked.

    What if my dog is to stubborn to train?

    A: EVERY dog of any breed can be trained. It just takes the proper methodology and leadership

    My dog doesn't listen to me

    A: Your dog will learn to take direction if you follow the protocols in the video series.

    What age does my dog need to be for this?

    A: Dogs 16 weeks and older can benefit from this training, In fact, I recommend you start them out with training sooner rather than later. 

    What if my dog has no prior training?

    A: Your dog can be totally "green" with zero leash skills and still make incredible progress with this course. Off-leash freedom IS within reach.

    How long will I have access to the course?

    A: You'll have lifetime access to the course. Once you purchase it, it's yours! Due to the digital nature of the course there are no refunds.

    Do I have to use a prong collar & remote collar?

    A: I am a huge advocate for remote collar training as it allows the safest and most reliable form of off leash communication with your dog. If you want to learn how we achieve off leash training, we do recommend both prong and E collars for this course.
