Okay, so my new kitten, Theus, is food obsessed to a fault. He is constantly trying to steal the dogs' food. This is causing numerous problems, because Ryou and Kuso are showing signs of food aggression towards him. It's not towards me, at all, because if I tell Ryou to drop his food, he drops it and waits for me to give him the okay. However, Kuso will not. Tonight, I literally had to pry the food from his mouth (yes, I took it from him, because I'm not going to let him get away with growling and snapping at the kitten). I set the food down and made him wait, however, anytime Theus comes near their crates, both of them start to growl, no matter whether they're eating the food or not, or whether the kitten can get at it or not. I make both dogs work for their food, so I already do the "nothing in life is free" method, so I know this isn't going to work for animal on animal food aggression. How would I go about keeping them from trying to rip Theus's head off if he tries to steal something from them? I mean, sometimes Ryou is in his crate already when I drop the food, and Theus runs in there and tries to snag it. I don't want him doing something in that split second it takes me to grab the kitten. I know I can lock Theus up and all, but I'd rather train the boys not to be food aggressive towards the kitten. He already eats first, right in front of Ryou, to try and show Ryou that he's got priority, that he's got a position higher in this pack. I just don't know what else to do.
