ditto pawz, that sticky is really helpful, i would recommend reading that, then we can answer questions you have about it... RG is very VERY normal behavior for dogs, it can be a little unsettling though, but you'll see some suggested solutions in that sticky, for now, i would feed the dogs/give them bones when they are separated only :)

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?
i would say, only give him bones when he is away from other dogs, but you might want to work on some things like positive interrupters, drop it and leave it, for just in case moments...

My 3 year old chihuahua/basenji mix does the same thing when my sister's 1 year old poodle mix is over. They usually take turns, but when my dog is chewing it, my sister's dog gets in face. He usually gets pinned for snapping at her. Then no more bone. He RG when I'm around but only when he has a tendon.

many methods can be considered abusive, and are so aversive that we feel as a team they are not safe to recommend over the internet. The Dog forum team reserves the right to make a judgement call as to what they feel is harmful advice. Physically aversive methods should only be used under strict direction of a professional in real life and not recommended on an internet forum :)
pinning a dog falls into this category... please do not give this advice on this forum again. working in pet retail does not qualify you to give this advice, and though i understand that you are getting what you might believe to be a desired result from doing this to your dog, i assure you that the dog is learning little more than to fear you. there are much less intimidating and more effective means of communicating to a dog what you want/don't want, at a minimum there are less dangerous routes you can take when choosing a training method/technique. please read the thread i linked to and if you have any questions about it feel free to ask. i hope that you will hang out with us and continue to share and learn with us :) but as stated in the sticky, there are certain things that are not appropriate to an internet forum and should be left to a professional IF you choose to go that route. thanks.
