When we had three at Calli, Teaki and Berkeley they were fine over anything but rawhides and the UPS man (he loved to ring our doorbell).  They NEVER fought over food.  Calli was the oldest and the high ranking one and the others knew it, they didn't fight with her just each other.  Now with Ziggi he is the aggressor with food.  We are working very hard with him on that, he has started several fights with Teak and they were out for blood, usually both ended up with blood on them.  We separate them and give them time alone, they know what they did you can tell by the way they act.   After the time out they are back to being buddies most of the time....Teaki can hold a grudge for longer and lets Zig know that she isn't happy with him.

When Berkeley and Teaki got into it, it was nearly impossible to separate them and there was always blood.  After being separated for 30 minutes or so they were right back to being best buddies.  We knew what got them started so we watched out for the UPS man and kept their bones separate.  

They do make alot of noise when playing but you can usually tell when one has had enough because the growl changes and you need to step in and let them know to stop.  Firm NO usually works for ours.  They have never once went after us while trying to separate them but if we got in the way of them trying to bite the other dog I am sure they would on accident get us.
