Aggressive to family dogs
She has been to an animal behaviorist here in town, who helped with some issues, like when I took here to class or on a walk, she would come in and go after which ever dog she could find.
I have spoken with my vet, while she hasn't done tests, her exam was normal. Her behavior with people is incredible. I love this dog for so many reasons.
I have read several training books including the Cesar Milan books. I think Eve looks at me as pack leader, but she looks at my husband more like a possession. She gets very upset when he pets another dog, gives another dog a treat. I had Evie before we got married and I told him he has to maintain the pack order but he doesn't really get it. She loves to sit on his lap and mine and when another dog walks by she'll lift her lip at them. I tell him to push her off, but mostly he doesn't.
Evie will be 2 in a few months, this has been going on since she was 6 monthts old. We go weeks without an episode but then there will be a flurry of them. This weekend, we were out of town and she went after my very old dane girl, who now has a few lacerations.
This started with my male, who would always try and take her toys. In training classes there were always dogs who would maul her in puppy play time.Then I took her to the dog park to run off some energy. She has no interest in the other dogs, only the people. But big dogs there would always jump her so I stopped taking her.
I am at a loss, I've never dealt with this before and don't know what to do.
