Aggressive Great Pyrenees

I own a female Great Pyrenees, shes about four years old. We have another dog in the house, a small lab mix who is very old and skittish. My Great Pyrenees has always been a very sweet and loving dog. She’s very gentle, loves cuddles, and will lay on anyone she meets. People aggression has never been an issue with her, but out of no where she has developed dog aggression towards are other dog. They have always gotten along fine, but now my Great Pyrenees has become very possessive. Especially when it comes to food. For example, if our mix picks up a toy near our Great Pyrenees she will lose it. If your giving our Great Pyrenees treats and the mix steps near her she also loses it. We have begun separating them when eating, but it sometimes happens over a little crumb on the floor and were not sure what to do about toys. Her barking turns very aggressive, and our mix freaks out and lays on the ground. She never actually bites her, just barks extremely loud and shows her teeth. We are worried that one day she will badly injure our mix. We aren’t sure what to do, and fear that we might have to just give her to a dog free home.

This is a question for an in person professional trainer with experience in resource guarding. Until you can have them evaluated, keep them totally separate to avoid injury.

I had the same issue with my 2yo and my 14yo (in our case, there was biting involved). He was sick from his pain meds, and I'm 100% sure that it's what caused it, because we haven't got any issue since he got better. We still separate them 90% of the time and always when we're away just in case.

It's annoying and yes, there's sometimes a whiny/barky dog, but at least at night it's never been a problem because the young one sleeps on the bed.
