My dog is not aggressive towards people or anything like that, would come right up to anybody and want to be petted. The problem i have is if she were to grap like a paper towel or something and takes it underneath the table she then turns mean, if you try to take it away. Growling and biting. What should i do?

How old is she? Has she gotten away with this for long or did it just start?
Trade her for something of high value(to her) when she won't give up what you want.
When she gives up the item you don't want her to have, praise her and reward. If you fight her on it, she'll just get ramped up and resource guard it all the more.

She is just over a year now. She has always done it, I usually just try to put things up so that this situtation wont happen. Figured she would grow out of it but i was wrong. I will try what you told me. Thanks
