Default Food agression

Ok. I need some ideas. I just added a new puppy to the family a week ago. She is 8 wks old and her and my 3 1/2 yr old boxer play together they even sleep together, but when it comes feeding time he gets really aggressive toward her. I have been feeding them seperate and feeding her in her crate, he was fine this way at first but now when i get the dog food bag out he automatically gets agressive toward her. Do ya'll have any suggestions i do try and correct him but doesnt seem to matter. Everything else is fine she can play with his toys jump all over him but food or treats is a no go. Also i can tell he gets depressed some when im holding or playing with he has been my only baby for 4 years and i dont like to see him hurt. Was wondering if this will pass. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Food aggression is quite common in dogs. Put the food dishes in different rooms. Place a food container that holds the food from the bag in each room. Take your boxer into one room and close the door. Put his food into the bowl and then leave the room.

Do the same with the other pup. When both are finished eating, pull up the dishes. Do know that this aggession can and probably will happen with treats, toys, etc. So do be careful as your boxer can hurt your puppy if it decides to. Do train your boxer anytime you see aggression and train your pup to respect your boxer. You may not be able to leave out ANY toys, etc. If the pup walks by them and you boxer thinks the pup will take it, that is all it takes for the boxer to attack your pup. This is called "Resource Guarding". Here is an article that may help:

Thanks gazar. Actually i have started doing this and works out better. As far as toys hes fine hes always shared his toys with other dogs and doesnt mind her playing with them either, it just seems to be the food and treats so i have started feeding her in my wash room and close the door and i feed him in the kitchen as always have i then take up the bowls which are empty but just in case hes fine sharing water thank goodness. He seems to love her so the food things gonna be the only problem.

I understand. One of my dogs is the same way. So we teach each of them to respect the other dog's food and toys..
And we keep the food dishes seperate and up. Good work on doing this already.
