I did the same steps as above with Banker, except I would "nose" first and I kept my hands next to his muzzle, not touching, as he learned.
Just like your dogs, Banker was used to the treats on his paws - he knew he would be getting them at some point, so that really helped.
Keep the dogs apart as you work with them on the trick to reduce the stress of the other dog trying to get the treats.
Banker had it done pat after five or six tries (love that clicker), though he has good and bad times flipping it into his mouth.
We are now up to a treat on the nose and one on each paw. He loves all the treats!
