Resource Guarding If you want to know what resource guarding is, this is the video to watch. Teach your dog right. This is what a dog should NOT do. Notice the body language that the dog gives. If he did bite you, it's the dog's fault but your own for not understanding his language.

Training Dogs The Woodhouse Way -- The Woodhouse Way was a show about training your canine chums. The star of the show was eccentric, bossy senior citizen Barbara Woodhouse. Her woolly kilt and sensible shoes helped make it a much bigger hit than was originally expected. Barbara, at the age of 70, was a former horse trainer and had developed her own forceful techniques for teaching dogs obedience. Her methods were criticised at the time and since. It always seemed to be the owners who looked terrified, not the dogs!
