Summertime and the living is easy, Fish are jumpin and the Cotton is high, etc. That song played in my head as these two former combatants (resource guarders) lounged together during the required afternoon nap time. After many months of BAT training and along with at least 10 pounds of there favorite treats, I think we made the jump to peace in the family. I no longer need to be in the vicinity when the two are together, even in backyard where Honey protected her kennel area.
Prior to the required nap time the two were in the yard alone taking turns rolling in the new Worm Castings I had just place carefully in the lawn area that needed some attention. Why Worm Castings are such a wonderful thing to roll in I have no clue and don’t really want to know, but they were having fun as I watched them from the window.
Over the last couple weeks we have not had a single guarding issue pop up. I will continue doing the treating etc. to really reinforce this behavior and make sure it’s a new and improved life style.
