Default My GSD Keeps Taking Toys away from my Cairn Terrier....Need Advice

My 1.5 year old GSD named Tess has suddenly began a mission of constantly going after my 1 year old Cairn Terrier named Maisie for whatever toy she might have. I need some advice on the best way to train Tess to keep her from doing this.

I always make sure that I have 2 of everything I give my two girls, however, in their minds, there is only 1 toy. This also goes for treats/bones, etc.... However, I always separate them when giving them any type of treats. I put Maisie in her crate and send Tess to her bed. When Tess finishes her treat, she'll go to Maisie's crate and start sniffing around, which leads Maisie to start growling.

When the two of them play together, they have a lot of fun, they do play rough but Maisie gives it right back to Tess. The thing is, I'm afraid that one of these times Tess might get a little too rough and hurt Maisie.

Any suggestions/advice, is greatly appreciated.
