I had a problem with that with my first dog Marshall and my 7 month old pup Riley used to do it. Honestly what I did was pet them on their head while they were eating and when they growled I would say "No" and push them away and then rubbed my hand all in the food as they were watching. I only use dry kibble so it's not messy. I would then sit indian style and hold the bowl in my lap and say "Come" here and have my hand in the bowl as they started eating around my hand. I would then start moving my hand as they were eating away and then move my hand up to their head and say "good boy" and such and they both came out of it. It worked for me. My first dog Marshall started doing it as he got older and especially when he had a bone. I would do the same thing and nipped it in the butt quickly.
