Lastly, Rocky must have a family that are experienced dog owners. A very loving family surrendered him to RAGOM due to his tendencies to resource-guard and counter-surf. His fosters have been working with a professional trainer to learn how to manage his taking and eating of unsuitable objects.
Rocky is learning to trade, but it is, and will continue to be, a work in progress. His resource guarding can be managed, but may always be part of his personality.
Rocky must be adopted into a home that is clean and orderly and without children or other dogs. He should not be allowed in the kitchen or dining room during cooking or eating times. Non-food items need to be to be kept picked up as well: socks, undergarments, hand towels, etc.
When Rocky has dog toys, he needs to be allowed to play with them undisturbed. Again, his resource guarding is definitely manageable, but will require daily attention and effort.
Rocky is so loveable, his foster family knows he is worth the extra effort!
