I'll try and keep this short. I have a 1 year old male lab out of very good bloodlines I paid a lot of money for and he has all the potential in the world to be a great gun dog, but he has one huge flaw. He is possessive over food and birds, to the point where I feel he very well may bite me or someone else. I can't afford a professional trainer and I've tried working it out on my own but it doesn't seem to get very far. I'm not sure what else to do so I'm hoping someone here can help. He listens great, is well behaved, absolutely lives to retrieve, but i can't have a dog that I can't trust. I'm to the point where I am considering giving him away to someone who may be able to fix the problem, has the means to pay someone to, or is okay with it. I really don't want to give away my buddy but I don't know if there are any other options. Thanks for any advice.
