I am just going to start off by saying I DID do a search and just need some more advice from my BW family!
Ok, we have had some issues with Brandy lately that have me worried. I love her to death don't get me wrong and she has always been a complete ANGEL. I think this all started when we got Zeus. I could never get rid of my dogs for something like this, I know I can work with her on the issues but I just need some HOPE I guess.
Ok, she started attacking other dogs, our neighbor came over and he didn't have his dog on a leash. Well $200 later she made the other dog need stitches on her ear. That was just the start of things, even though that was the idiots fault for not leashing his dog and letting her come in MY yard. That still doesn't tell me why Brandy, my laid back (or so I thought) girl that loves everyone is doing this. Then she started attacking Baylee & Zeus when there was food around. Not in the dog bowls but treats, anything that fell on the kitchen floor, or if the kids had a cookie or were eating something, she follows them and will attack the other dogs until it is gone. We are working with the kids on this, since it is mostly my 2 year old that she waits for crumbs with. But, I just don't understand, Zeus used to guard the food bowls, we have since seperated all of them during dinner time so no fights break out (mostly Zeus being the typical arrogant boxer boy)
But, I think this may have been the start of it and that is why Brandy wants to guard whoever has other food. Like Keely was sitting with me on my bed one morning with a granola bar. Brandy growled & chased Baylee and Zeus from the bed. Getting rid of my dogs is absolutely NOT an option. I could never do that to them. I am willing to do what I can to make this work, but giving up any of them won't work. If anyone has ANY suggestions please have at it. I would really appreciate it!
Oh, and I do have MINE by Jean Donaldson already and actually I am reading it AGAIN to see what I may have missed the first time.
