I have a 2 year old female GSD. She is very obedient with me on or off the leash. I can not leave her anywhere as she becomes snappy and scarry when I am not around. My wife does most of the training with her but she doesn't listen to her well. she is a very bossy dominating dog. her behaviour has been escalating. she used to nip softly now she bit our nanny (who feeds her daily) because she told her to leave something. The bite was not very aggresive but it made her finger bleed. We are contemplating getting rid of her. Is there anything we can do? we tried everything we knew!!! HELP!!!!
That sounds like separation anxiety. Some times dogs do pick favorites but I think a problem like that can be solved in many different ways. You need to try and break her from that habbit, what all have you tried? I would say that it would require a great deal of training to be fixed, but it can be done.
