Our 2 year old male Great Pyrenees growls at and/or chases our goats whenever they are around food! He is otherwise generally great with them being a super guard dog. He has never actually bitten them to my knowledge, but we don't want our goats to eventually get hurt.

Besides confining him during feeding time, what can I do to make him stop??!!!

No. Stuff like goat feed and bread.

Our great Pyrenees does the same thing, but only around his own food bowl. I actually don't mind that behavior because I don't want the goats eating dog food. But if he's guarding the goats' food, that is unacceptable. I would think you need to separate them during feeding time and redirect dog when he acts aggressive around goat food.
