Question My Dobermans are extremely jealous...

I have two dobermans, Lady and Luna.
My dogs are extremely sweet and loving with me but it seems that the younger one gets jealous when the older one tries to give me attention and this results in growling, biting, and them fighting. It gets very ugly and I can not do anything to separate them when that occurs.
Is this something normal? Should I separate the dogs or is this something that a trainer could resolve?
Let me know please, I would really appreciate the help.
Thank you!!

It is called resource guarding and yes you should consult with a behaviorist or trainer. You need to intervene before this escalates.

YOU need to be the alpha in this situation. You need to enforce order or otherwise the pack is in chaos. You must not allow this type of conflict.
