Hello and welcome. This is just a short note to introduce myself or to request needed information for your problem. My name is ***** ***** I have been in the dog field for 25 years. I am a Therapy Dog & AKC Evaluator/trainer/ as well as an assistance/service dog trainer, specializing in behavior. It will be my pleasure to help you today.

When did this start?

How long have you had the dog?

Where did the dog come from?

What is going on between the two at the time of the growling?

Do you notice if the dog becomes defensive if you try to take a valued item from him such as food, toys, bones, etc?
