We have had our dog since 8 weeks and have taught him to be hand fed and calm around food with us. However, today he managed to get to some food left by a child of our guest. When the child tried to pick up the food our dog growled and then bit her. We have a 3 year old son and plan on having another baby. I find this very scary behaviour. Is there a way we can stop this food aggression?

Hi Hannah,

Thank you for your email, you have every right to be concerned.

Before I attempt answering your question could you please tell me how old your dog is and what breed he is?

I look forward to your reply!

Kind regards,
