Nero, Resource Guarding – Working on future Exchanges

Here is a short clip of my previous session with Nero.

I posted about Nero previously, but if you have not seen any of the posts, here is a short intro.

Nero showed aggressive behaviours towards his family on several occasions while he was eating food items and also when laying on the sofa.

We are working together for a couple of weeks now to improve Nero’s resource guarding behaviours.

This short clip shows the current exercise we are practising at the moment to develop further his skill to not grab or to drop a food item.

Once this skill will be fully developed, it will be used to ask Nero to leave or drop an item in exchange for something else and avoid any possible stress and/or negative reactions from Nero.

Thank you,
