food aggression in neo mastiffs
« on: August 07, 2007, 06:11:08 am »
i wanted to see if anybody had any ideas about how to stop the food aggression that my neo mastiff seems to display.  she is very friendly around other people and dogs, even though she chases our cat constantly.  the only prob is that if we try to take certain foods away from her she will growl and snap at us.  we have tried everything from putting our hand in her food bowl, which she usually does not mind, to using a choke chain and trying to stop the aggression.  she seems to lose it though if she gets ahold of human food and we try to take it from her :-[  not sure what to do.  any suggestions?
