Welcome to the forum! You'll find a lot of good tips for dealing with food aggression in the training/behavior section when you get approved. One of our two dogs is slightly food aggressive, but we deal with it by simply feeding them separately.
Do you have any pictures of your new pup? What's her name?

welcome....cute pup....its tougher when they are a bit older and have not the training from the get go, i always would fake eating the food in the bowl first....the pack leader gets to eat first, then i would give my pup a bit of food from my hand.....then get her to sit put the food down and i always kept my hand in the bowl the whole time she fed/feeds, again the pack leader goes where it wants, and to also get her to understand that i would not take it away from her....again it was easier to do when she was a pup...maybe some variations of these things will help...good luck

My one dog is food aggressive and both him and my other boy get fed in seperate rooms...once they are finished eating the dishes are out up.

There is no point in starting a fight over it, hence why they always get fed seperately

I avoid food aggression by feeding my dogs in their crates. Not only does this associate the crate with a good thing (food), it keeps them safe and away from each other while they're eating. My two dogs don't have food aggression, but like I said, thats how I avoid it.

I'm sure you'll find all the info you're looking for here on the forum :)

Cute pup! Can't wait to see some more pics.

I had one incident of food aggression between my two dogs... it was more than enough for me! They now get fed separately. One in the kitchen, one in his bedroom. It is alot less stressful for all of us, and it gives them a chance to eat slower.
