Child (or dog) minder.

Tom
That's what my friend Google says as well, but that wouldn't make much sense in terms of behavior assessment. Typically we would say that the the dog is wary (zurückhaltende) or a resource guarder (Ressourcenverteidigung).

Ah, just saw the rest of your comments. Yes, it's a dog, so guarding behavior as in watchfulness, barking, territorialism makes sense.

Many thanks, Tom!
