Resource Guarding

I have a 15 month female Olde English Bulldoggee. Over the last 4 months she has started growling and snapping at other dogs. We have another OEB who is 7 and is the one who is getting the brunt of this behavior. We have narrowed it down to special treats, if she is next to my husband, and if she is on the bed. We have found that her growling gets worse at night when she is tired. We have hired a behavioral trainer who has us starting back to the basics with her training (sit, down, leave it, stay, etc). She has also asked us to put her on Prozac for resource guarding as her aggression has been progressively gotten worse not better. We have now taken away all toys(except when we’re there to facilitate happy play), only give treats when she earns them, not allowed on the furniture, and no more sleeping on the bed. All of this has been a drastic change in the last 2 weeks as she went after my other dog and she received a puncture wound to the cheek. I am just wondering if we are going about it the right way. Ever since we have put all of these rules and training in place we’ve only heard two growls and if we distract her she stops but we’re also on high alert. We’re hoping to get to a point where I don’t feel that my older guy is going to get bit whenerver she gets tired or is trying to get my husbands love. I welcome any and all suggestions please, as I said I want to make sure we’re progressing with her not regressing. Thanks!

I think you're going about it the right way. I'd also suggest crate training her so she has a secluded place to hang out when she's tired.

Thank you! She is crated during the day while we are at work. And currently we have one of those black metal gates surrounding her at night so that she can learn not to jump on the bed. When we notice her getting tired/cranky do you suggest putting her in her crate or up in her gated area to sleep? We feel bad because she went from cuddling on the bed and couch to a secluded area but we obviously understand this is for the safety of our older guy and for the sake of her training.
