just wanted to say welcome to the forum. I'm not a dog expert, but I'm gonna vote for resource guarding/protecting. Trying to ensure someone else doesn't eat it.
My little guy manifests his resource guarding in a different way. all my dogs get hooves to chew on. they are every where. Ollie, my little guy (I have three), he and my female are only allowed in my bedroom. Ollie will retrieve hooves that are unattended and deposit them in my room for safe keeping. I release the hooves every so often back into the rest of my house and yard, one time Ollie had 30 hooves (partially eaten), in my room.
