Quite easy - leave her to eat in peace. That means from the other dogs, and you.

The sure fire way to make a dog possessive over food is to make that food seem to be under threat. So if you want to avoid it, don't let (or make) that happen.

If you were in a favourite restaurant eating a lovely meal and someone tried to take it from you, I suspect you would feel justified in telling them to do one - your dog is the same.

So keep the dogs, and your hands, away from your puppy's bowl.
