    Thanks for all replies, quick update, she now has acess to yard, but behaviour has become worse with regard to the biting. Realy need some ideas with that as it's the worse problem we have to deal with, so will start a new thread, she's now eight months old, so will have a look to see if thread should be here or in dog forum.

    It is a shame all of this has been allowed to go so far....hyacinth has given some really good ideas and they work.

    From my experience with working with many dogs in Obedience/Rescue and asking histories of owners, I find chained dogs often have to worst habits. Dogs in general need a lot of interaction and some breeds more them others. I have seen many dogs mentally destroyed by the pinning (alpah roll) them down. I think they only time that should be used is by behaviourists who knows how it should be done and when, with good timing. And it should only be done in extreme cases........My newfie; Dog and people aggressive (severe) only ever had it done once after she attacked a dog. If a dog is truly dominant and very few are, it is about the worst thing you can do to get a good relationship. Even if you watch the natural dog (wolf or a pack of dogs), it is not done often and only by a dog who is respected by the other dog. Or who has shown him he is tougher and been in a fight with the other dog. And you don't want that sort of relationship. Cesar Milan has timing and is very good at reading dogs and most people can just not even half imagine what he knows. That is why I hate his shows, He is good, but he gives people the idea that they can just do it......
    I would at this point get an experienced Trainer/behaviourist in. Even just to read the dog and see if it is aggression or just play.
    With my puppies I also use the "put the hand/ fingers right down the mouth" method and my dogs always have good bite inhibition. But it was started for day one......
    Even our new rescues have everything started form day one. It is hard to track back if you have allowed the dog to bite, without good help. Or allowed them to do anything. Start form day one, what you want them to do forever.
    Potty training also is better done earlier then later. But I have had 14 month old Rescue's and have used the umbilical method really successfully. I also use the bell. With puppies I again use the same system and crate them at night. It is just so easy to train babies, they are like sponges and love to learn.
    So I would suggest get some help, do some training and spend a lot of time with your puppy. Good luck and happy training
    Pets are forever
