Lollipop returned home from her board and train

by Steph Mahrle


Lollipop, a year old pit bull mix, was sent to Good Karma Training for a two week board and train because she had a severe resource guarding issue. She had attacked her senior pack mate on three occasions, over food and also over higher value items such as bones. Understandably, her owners considered re-homing her, and even euthanizing her. Ultimately, they put their faith in Good Karma Training. The following video demonstrates the progress of Lolli's rehabilitation. 

Resource guarding is a very common problem with dogs. If you and your dog are  struggling with this same behavior, help to resolve it is absolutely available. Seek out a balanced dog trainer for board and train services, and begin the journey of leading your dog to behave calmly.
