Thank you for the comments. I’ve had many dogs in my life, but the only other one I’ve had that got protective of his food like that was a Jack Russell Terrier. Because Shadow is a lot bigger and stronger, it scares me more. I tried what Chris suggested and it worked pretty well. But I’m still scared to leave the little dogs out with Shadow when I’m not there. I’ve seen where the “Dog Whisperer” takes them on walks together so they feel like a pack. I think I’ll try that next.
