This morning I fed the dogs and Chuggie was happily eating. But I didn’t leave the room and it was a good thing. As soon as Mainard finished his food, he went straight to Chuggie and started stalking him and started to take his food. I fussed at Mainard and he lowered his head and kept stalking. I got between them and Chuggie was like a little kid that thought he was getting attention. He stopped eating and Mainard went for the bowl. I blocked him and fussed at him. He continued to stalk and I lowered my voice and said his name like a growl. He backed off and moved about 6 feet away and kept staring at Chuggie. I made sure Chuggie finished eating.
I can’t discipline Mainard as he isn’t my dog and not under my care. But it is clear that Chuggie needs some protection.
