Possesive Springer

by Debbie
(North wales)

I have an 8 month old Springer Spaniel. She has quite quickly become possessive of toys and bones. She will growl and snap at other dogs although I can take them away. She happily allows my children to bring their dogs into the garden, but not the house. She is gentle with their children. She prefers to do her own thing than play with other dogs/ balls. She has now started to to snap at dogs who approach me. If we are out and I say walk on she passes dogs with no problem.

I think it's possessiveness but don't know how to stop it. Local dog training is all about walking to heel which along a road she does.
Any suggestions please
