Hi there,

I think you are on the right track by hand-feeding. I actually did this with Sebastian when he was a baby to prevent any type of guarding behavior, and it worked beautifully. I would highly suggest a book by Ian Dunbar called "After you get your puppy". Fantastic resource that deals with many common puppy problems! (Also a really easy read, not a boring textbook) I did find a website that had an excerpt from the book regarding food guarding:

Raising a puppy: Preventing object guarding | Dog Time - Master trainer Ian Dunbar on keeping your dog from turning into an object guarder

Hope this helps you, and I'm sure others here will have more advice!

Keep us updated :)
