Hi all
An abstract question for you all.
Do you think having a resource guarding dog is a danger when there are young children in the house and is it irresponsible to treat this within this environment?

It can be dangerous, how dangerous depends on the age of the kids and how dog savvy they are. Also what resource the dog is guarding. As for treating it within the environment it depends on who is dealing with it, an expert like Kiz would know how to minimise the risk but someone trying to do it that isn’t an expert could make matters worse.
