    Pippi tried food aggression on me once. She was licking a plate someone had left on the floor and I went to push her away from it and she gave a wee growl. I gave her a wee tap on th ebutt and now, if you tell her to drop food, she spits it out at ya well quick LMAO
    Bones are probably the only food item that Harley is funny about. He can get really agro when you go to touch it. Sometimes it worries me but most of the time I can pick it up even with his wankery

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Oskar was food aggresive as a pup when we first got me...I gave him a pigs ear on the first day we brought him home, I went to take it off him and he growled and nipped me....needless to say, I fixed that behaviour right up. Now I can feed him and put my hand in his food bowl while he is eating, and take things off him...the kids, he is still a bit funny with as he sees himself as an equal to them. He will growl at them sometimes, so I encourage them to feed him and give his sit and eat commands. But never do they, put their hands in his food bowl...better to be safe than sorry.

    Yea food aggression is not good when ya have kids running round. Naturally kids have to learn too, but its usually far easier teaching a dog LMAO

    When I bring new babies home I always stick my fingers in their mouths when they eat, and grab food from their bowl.

    Every now and then I will test my two and stick a hand over the top of their bowl while they are eating. Barney gets his "aww please mum" face on (which is really cute) and stares at the bowl til ya move ya hand. Pippi on the other hand will try and go round ya hand if she can, or push ya hand out of the way until she realises ya cant and then she sits and stares at your face, never the hand.

    My boy does a mixture of hand stare then into your eyes then back to the hand if no hand move then eye stare whilst licking his lips then it's back to the hand. The stare at the hand is the longest, eye contact is minimal... Should work on the eye contact a bit more than I have been. It's just hard to resist him. Plus I figure if he shares his food with his cousin the cat he doesn't have food aggression.

    Mojo just grabs his bone or pig ear and bails. He dosnt hang around to give anyone a chance of stealing his tucker.
    Dinner in his bowl is a diffrent story. He'll spin around still eating and use his body to push you out of the road. If that fails he uses his boof head and 50kg's to bulldozer you back a few feet.
    If ya havnt heeded the warnings he gives a little growl but wont bite.
    He dose it to me even when i'm trying to ditch my dinner in his bowl before the misses see me do it. He seems to like the rabbit food my dieting wife is forcing on us at the moment.

    My dogs are great with food..we just move their bowls or take bones out of their mouths, we always have, it starts from puppy. they know they always get it back. I never really think about it, we just move them sometimes, just because
