Deer Dog: Dealing with Possessive Behavior

Jeremy Moore shares great advice on dealing with a common deer dog issue: Possessive behavior.

By nature, dogs are pack animals and understanding that pack behavior is important. Teaching your deer dog its place amongst the pack -- including yourself and your family is important and can also help in the field.

Moore suggests drills to help with aggressive and possessive behavior that will aid when recovering deer in the field as well as when dealing with other dogs at home.

While some would suggest you should never feed multiple dogs together in the same area, Moore encourages the practice and uses the action to help teach lessons about possessive and aggressive behavior correction.
