How do I get my dog to stop growling at the other dogs when they eat?

Does each dog have its own bowl? They are dogs, not rocket scientists. Their instincts kick in before you can spit. Each dog should have its own bowl, and the same feeding times for all. A good exercise to teach them they are equal is to give them treats in front of each other and praise the dogs who don't get the treat (for non-aggression). I have 4 dogs, who eat together, and no problems like that just following these steps.

Train him by letting other dogs eat with him/her. And when he/she growls at them, then take him away from the food until he stops growling, or pop him/her on the nose until they stop growling.

Separate feeding bowls! Worked for my dogs.
