Food Aggression in Malamutes

Food aggression can be a sensitive subject for some owners. Their pups are all around good ‘kids,’ but when it comes to food they can be a threat to other dogs and people. If you own a Malamute or other dog that is dealing with food aggression, talk with your vet to find out how to correct this behavior. The moment you notice your dog is becoming protective or aggressive around food, take action and work to reverse this negative and often dangerous habit. You can do this by making some small steps such as feeding your dog at the same time daily so he doesn’t worry about missing a meal. Before he can go at his food, ask him to sit. Don’t let him get up until you place the bowl next to him. Stand next to him while he’s eating so he becomes accustomed to your presence. For more tips, talk with your veterinarian Columbia, MD.
