3 weeks ago I had a friend over. She left her backpack in the kitchen, where my dog stays. Once we came back up, she tried to grab her backpack but my dog, Scout, was standing threateningly over it, and when she put her hand close to him he growled and snapped. This also happened when I had another friend over. She dropped a bag of food, and when she went to pick it up he growled and snapped. What do I do? I don't want him to bite anyone
