Default meeko guarding his things

so i have a dachshund, who is GREAT with yoda, he lets him play with him all day, and will let him sleep on him, yoda follows him around i mean they are great together. except meeko will like snap at him when he is eating his food and yoda tries to come over, so i stopped feeding meeko with yoda around. also he thinks all the toys should be his, i bought a little duck squeeker at the store and also a squeeker for meeko cause he loves them. but he tries to get it, and if he does he kind of like freezes when yoda tries to come play with it, he has yet to snap, but has like lounged forward, but never opened his mouth. im worried that it will progress. so any suggestions on what i can do?

Be firm & tell him NO!! This behavior can grow if you ignore & not let him know it's wrong.

This is NORMAL dog behavior. Meeko is telling Yoda to 'back off, this is mine". IF Yoda responds by backing off, fine. If not, trouble is lurking ahead. I would separate them when feeding, and when they get toys, I would certainly be there is stop Yoda from 'stealing' any toys from Meeko. Meeko probably won't hurt a puppy, but as Yoda matures, Meeko may become more insistant in his 'warnings'.
