    Best of luck with it all, i hope all your hard work over the last few years pays off.
    Izzy was rehomed to one of our friends, where she was an only dog, before coming to us and she had very big issues. She was nipping more people than what she does now and was very possesive of everything.
    I have sent all her paperwork today now we just wait until friday.

    Best of luck to you and Izzy this week.

    Have you also considered a good vet chiropractor? Sometimes aggressive dogs can be physically in pain.

    update: Izzy and I saw the behaviourist and I think it went well. She has diagnosed Izzy as having many types of aggression including alliance aggression, status aggression and a few others. Izzy has been medicated as she has an anxiety disorder as well and we are doing alot of training to help her with her issues, we hope that this will work and Izzy can be a calmer more relaxed dog.

    Poor little Izzy she has a big mountain to climb.

    I hope your training works out for you and she progresses well.

    Don't forget to pop in and keep us updated, I'd be very interested to hear her progress.

    I'm not trying to cause trouble but I keep thinking about this, if you do have several other animals, and you knew that this little dog was aggressive, can I ask why you chose to bring her into your home?
    I understand you wanting to help her (I'm a sucker for a dog in need too) but I would never bring a dog into my home that I knew had the potential to hurt me or, more importantly, my dogs.
    No offence intended, I just like to know things.

    A little update on Izzy: Her training is going great and we are now working closely with her behaviourist with all the dogs and their little issues still a few hicups to get over but certainly looking alot better.
