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.

I hope everything works out well for Izzy!
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.
Also wanted to ask does/has anyone on here used delta society trainers? that is who our behaviourist recomended and I just thought I'd ask on here what anyone thought of them.
Thinking of you and hope it improves.
Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
Good Luck Dogmad
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.
