I currently have two dogs: a dachshund mix (11 months) and a pure pomeranian (4 months).

I recently bought mini rawhide bones for my dogs to chew on.
I gave them each a bone, but my dachshund chose to set aside the bone I gave him. Instead, he went and snatched my pomeranian's bone away. When my pomeranian tried to bring her bone back, my dachshund started to become very aggressive. Although he did not bite her, he growled and pounced on her in a very unfriendly manner.

After I took the bone away, they went back to playfully fighting in the backyard and then they took a nap together in the same bed as they always do.

I'm not sure if I should be so worried. He has always been a very sweet and loving dog, but his behavior shocked me that night. He has never shown any signs of aggression until this incident. Any ideas/comments? :confused:

Thank you :)

I already hand-feed him daily, and he is only protective of his bone. Should I consider only giving him bones when he is away from other dogs? Is this something I shouldn't be trying to correct?
