Jinny has started resource guarding. She stole another dogs ball today at the park and then attacked him when he went close. It was horrible!! She's started doing it with treats as well if the cat is near her. She went to have a drink out a water bowl and a dog went near her and she growled at her as well. It's really knocked my confidence with her. What do I do?

She's just finished her season (week 3nhalf) could this be it?

When she first started her season we went to my sisters house and she had loads of bones about. Jinny took one and when her dog came upto her she went for him aswell. I assumed it was because the bones were high value?
But a ball? She has loads of balls?

she's really good at home, she will sit and wait for her dinner until we give her the command. She will"leave" anything we ask her to. The only niggle thing is if the cat gets A treat she will try and take it.
Everyone at the park was so shocked because she's never behaved like this before, she's been going since 10 weeks old and has played with the dogs (this was anew one!) every day since apart from the last 3 weeks. She's usually very submissive and chilled.

i feel reallysad. I spent ages making sure she wouldn't resource guard as a puppy in the home but didn't think about outside.
She was attacked by a black Labrador at 12 weeks because of a ball and he bit through her ear, he has a name for himself because he's obsessed with the ball and I don't want her to be the same

We taught her to drop it and leave it. When we feed her we get her to sit and wait until we give the command and even then we can get her to sit half way through. We took her chews off her and then asked for paw and gave it straight back.
