Aggressive guarding of his crate/bed.

by Rich
(Indiana)

I have a farm with plenty of land, ponds, barns and animals. I also have 5 dogs total: 2 GPs, 1 Lab and 2 Shorkies (that live in the house)

I have 3 OPEN crates in my shop for the 2 GPS and Lab. The male GP is about 2 yo. Recently he started going in one crate (they are never locked and can come and go as they please) and growls deeply if any other dog comes near him in there. The problem is that he is super sweet and has never had a problem before. Other dogs and cats would lay with him no issues. Now he will run out and at any dog that come near, but ONLY when he's in the crate.

What's going on?

Thanks!
Rich

Crate guarding
by: Donna

He has matured somewhat and just doesn't want any dog/animal near his crate. He wants his peace and quiet which is what the crate is there for.

He is also being possessive of it, probably.

You'll need to keep his crate away from the others in such a way they don't need to walk by it ever.

This is unsolicited but make sure you have neutered and spayed your dogs. Over 3 million dogs are put down in the States every year due to unwanted dogs and the shelters are full to overflowing.
