My dog is about 2 years old her name is Kiki, and she has quite a bit of behavior issues. Most of them are due to the inexperience on my part as she is my first dog. She's a sweetheart at home and a very good dog most of the time but in certain situations she has a lot of areas she lacks training in.
(1) She doesn't know how to play with other dogs
I think this is mainly because we took her to the dog park when she was too young. I don't remember how old she was but it definitely influenced her. When we first got there she would box with dogs, the other owners said it was okay they were playing. So we kept taking her, but she's bitten two dogs twice and one bled. My dad said it was because they were bothering her, that she didn't want to play with them but they bothered her anyway. Regardless, I'm still worried. Because of this, we stopped taking her to the dog park. I'm not sure what I should do?
(2) She doesn't know how to greet other dogs
I think this is due to the fact we took her to the dog park so often. I think along the way she forgot how to greet dogs. Every time she sees another dog she growls and barks, before she used to just look at them, sniff at them when they came up to her. But now, she gets all excited barking and growling. I don't believe she is aggressive but perhaps playful? Maybe its just me not wanting to admit my dog is aggressive but thats why I'm asking.
(3) She pulls a ton on leash
I tried training her with conventional treats and cues when she's behaving but she doesn't respond to treats outside. Outside, she's so focused on everything around her she pays no attention to treats. She jumps and barks at cars too, I've tried training her to ignore the cars but she doesn't care about food outside. Now all I can do is hold her collar and harness so she can't jump but I'd really like to train her out of this...
Thank-You for any insite you can provide, I take full responsibility for her behavior as I am an inexperienced owner.
