Aggressive with other dog

We've had mini schnauzers for years and have 3 right now. Two are brothers and are almost 2 years old. The other is about 7 mths and bigger than the other two. He is so funny and sweet, but...he guards the food against one of the dogs so I have to feed them separately, and they will get in a vicious fight if I am in the picture. I have been bitten 3 times by trying to pull the littler one away from the larger one (Toby). Toby doesn't want the other dog near me and I don't know what to do. Tonight I got bit on the chest as I was leaning over when it happened. Help!

Cici and Lacey

They share their food every day, thank God there is no aggression, Cici starts on her bowl and finishes in Lacey's and viceversa.

It sounds like you need a trainer to help the youngest one with his aggression towards you and the other dog.

Schnauzers and their food
by: Jackie


I'm not dog expert but I know schnauzers do love their food. Maybe all you can do is feed them separately. There's obviously a pack mentality occurring and the biting schnauzer thinks he's in charge. Wow, I never thought that they could be vicious! My two schnauzers let the cat eat from their plate! I hope you get an answer.
