i came across this video and midway thru (about 1:05) there is a "scuffle"

incase anyone cant view it, here is the breakdown...

3 gsd pups 7wks old are given one bowl of food to share.
half way thru the meal the blue pup gives the initial growl,
the nc (no collar) pup gives the first "warning" snap which starts the fight.
blue gives first bite, its hard to tell whos dominating the fight for sure (shaky camera) but it appears to be nc pup, except blue gets to return to the food while nc stays back and approaches with caution. there is a third pup (black collar) who stays out of the initial conflict all together, but then growls when the blue puppy returns to the bowl and causes blue puppy to sit back.

so i'm a little confused as to which one or maybe both or all will have dominant personalities?


this is the description that the owner gives:

These are our crazy german shepherd pups at feed time at 7 weeks. The girl fires up as usual then the boys Diesel (blue collar) and Cog (black collar) tell her where to go.

well, he's a 24yr old guy
and seems to get a kick out of. i watched his other videos of the pups a bit older and it seems he just has the two males now. i'm trying hard to hold my feelings about the whole thing to myself... and just trying to further understand puppy dynamics and watch for any signs that will give insight into their adult character.

so do you think this isnt the best scenario to test a pups temperament since almost any dog can be food aggressive?

i tried to watch the way they played in the beginning of the video, but there wasnt much footage and i couldnt tell if it was the female (nc) or the black puppy on bottom.
