hi i dont know if this is the right place for this post, but here goes...
we (my partner and i) have adopted a 1yr old gsd from the rspca.
she was found wandering the streets in a terrible condition and is a very anxious and timid dog. she was also very hand shy and scared of men.
the rspca told us they believe she has been beaten badly, by a man.
any how we have had her for around 4 months now and she is coming along in leaps and bounds. we have bonded very strongly and she is my shadow. at first she was very nervous around Daniel and would not come near him, accept treats off him or play, however now she will do all of the above (and happily).
however we have a few issues that we are struggling to understand and fix.
1. she has an anxiety attack and hides if daniel tries to feed her but will accept treats readily ...(however is very excited when i feed her )
2. also if daniel enters a room that she and i are in she will bark and growl at him, even if they have been playing literally minutes before.
he has tried calling her before he enters, i have tried disciplining her when she becomes aggressive, completely ignoring it..... we dont know why she does it so its hard to fix it any ideas??????????
3.she used to play well with other dogs, however now she is fit again she has become a bully and slightly aggressive and i am not sure how to fix this!!?
i need some gsd expertise i think!!!!! please help
