Hello,
I have a year-old male Vizsla, and he has recently started being possessive with objects, but only with other dogs. He allows us to reach in his mouth to take things, food, etc, away from him and has never growled at us or shown any aggression towards us, but he becomes more aggressive if another dog tries to take or approach his ball, stick, etc. What can we do to correct this?
Thanks for your help.

There is a lot of helpful information about Resource Guarding as well as 3 important links. 2 are for trainers/behaviorists and 1 is for a great book on the subject!:)

If I understood correctly, your dog is guarding from dogs that do not belong to you correct?
In that case, personally I would just make sure that there are no toys, bones etc. around when your dog is playing with or around other dogs.
