  • When you touch his food, your dog should associate this with a positive outcome. As an example, a small amount of food could be put into his food bowl but you could also have a readily available treat.  You should approach him after he has been eating for a short . A treat should be offered when he growls.

    He may continue to protect his food or he may decide to take it from you right away. With patience and persistence, he will finally eat the treat. As he eats the treat, you should put extra food in his bowl. This must be repeated until you can approach his food dish without him displaying dog food aggression.

  • Dog food aggression is brought on by your dog’s need to safeguard his meal. This is also inherited behavior. Distributing your dog’s food between a few bowls and placing them in front of him may help to solve this. When he begins to eat out of one of the bowls, you should approach him and pick up one of the other bowls. Place a tempting treat in this bowl and put it back in front of him.

    After a short while, this should also be done with the other food dishes. When your dog begins to realize that things happen when you approach his food bowl, the dog food aggression should end.

It is important for all members of your family to be involved in the process. This will form a closer bond between your family and your dog. It is important to note that a dog should never be separated from his food!
