After several months of Roxy living with us I think that she is displaying signs of resource guarding but in really subtle (to me) ways. It's never with food but mainly regarding me & my OH with occassionally toys. I think, to a certain degree, she even does this with Toby so just wanted some advice regarding how best to manage this. She initially went through a period where she was attacking Toby in the evenings (nothing major & we managed to to stop this) & we sort of realised that it was related to her being on the sofa (these are when the attacks took place). Since then the dogs are not allowed on the sofa or bed to stop any conflict however, we have been a bit lapse recently & have been letting them jump up on the bed in the mornings for a cuddle. Today, when they both jumped on to the bed, I noticed Roxy's body language stiffen when Toby jumped up (Roxy was forst - she walways is!) & Toby did so he jumped down. Immdeciately I knew this was indicating she was going to 'go' for him so told her off as well - no escalation. By watching both of them carefully I have noticed: Roxy always has to be ahead when we are out walking, she is fine lead walking on her won but has to be ahead when out with Toby She has to have his attention & will cajole him in to playing with her If she decides she wants his toy she will take it - he often lets her do this although at times will not & occasionally has 'put her in her place' She doesn't like me or my OH playing with Toby & will try & get in between us & get Toby's attention back on to her It's not as if they don't get on, they do & play well together. They very rarely fight now but I have noticed old tensions coming back since we started to allow them back on the bed - we will stop this immediately. Just wondered if it is 'normal' behaviour for some dogs & not too worry too much. Toby did seem slightly warier of Roxy yesterday & I could tell that she was a bit 'iffy' with him so kept an eye on them both. We are always aware not to favour one over the other but don't want Roxy's more demanding actions to mean Toby has less focus but at the same time don;t want to 'baby' Toby & make things worse Sorry for the long post - there is always something I need advice opn lately!
