    The pups squabble over their bones too. I solve the problem by complete separation if I give bones when 2 of the other working dogs are over here, Pretty gets hers inside, Penny outside and Boris out the back on his chain. With Jodi, later it may have to be complete separation too but no way will they miss out on them as I feel that they are so important to diet. You can also remove them from both after a set period.

    ohhh Sumo, why are you being so naughty over the bones

    opps there goes my idea of buying Sumo & Ruby dried roo tail each & bones for Chrissie, guess ill will have to buy you 2 some other form of food...

    Clea, hopefully in time "Mr Greedy Guts" & "Miss PMS" will calm down & not show aggression & obsession to their bones, wonder if its the "puppy stage" their going thro or not

    Boss does the same but to chewy and charlie (cats). he lets them eat out of his bowl and everything, but when he gets a bone he grows at the them then runs outside with it.

    I have a Pug that has tried to bite me when I have taken a bone from him.

    He is always crated to eat bones, in fact, I separate all of them but Boofy is th eonly one that has any food aggression issues.

    He, like Cleasanta's, is fine with his food bowl and normal food but give him a bone and a canine version of Dr Jekyll erupts in him.

    Least you know.

    Rufus was eating chicken necks with the kittens today - he just shoved them off when he wanted to nick their neck - so a couple went and hid to eat - and they growl at each other over raw meat!!

    It's amazing how a few bones can turn the most sociable creatures into absolute terrors! I always separate my lot, I send one or two out the front, one or two out the back, and so on. I keep an eye on them, then make sure I pick up any bits left behind (not that there usually is!). They can eat their usual dinner in the same room, but when it comes to bones some devour them seemingly in minutes while others take ages, so I try to team up the slow ones together if I can so the gutses don't hassle them.
