    sounds like Arabians and Malinois. IE, they are proud and highly intelligent and will react back if they feel they do not *deserve* a correction. Nothing inherintly wrong with this, shes basically telling you "excuse me? i am FINE, **** off, i aint doin nothin wrong!". clearly you DO need to be able to correct her for dangerous behavior that puts herself in harms way, so find another way to discipline that doesnt cause her to feel like shes being treated unfairly. And until you get a handle on it, leave a snugly fitting collar and 6+ ft lead dragging on her at all times, do you have a physical means to remove her without getting bit. And try being more low key. "Um, what are you doing? Not acceptable missy" while dragging her away from the offending item is less likely to make her feel angry than "NO!!!!! *manhandle maul shove*

    #2, I only skimmed the first post and the reviver post, this is all I'll add, see #3 under "don't" (It's self defense!)...

    What a great picture, and confrontational is right! Esp in a breed like a Sibe, we cant expect them to act like a pit bull and roll over when a human speaks sternly lol.

    Sorry to bump an old topic, it came to the top of my list and was bolded (new post) my bad ><

    Oh no don't worry, you didn't, it was this new user one page back-


    Yeah, Enda melts and slinks away when you raise your tone, and don't even think about dropping the F bomb in this house! They all go running for the hills, they have not been physically punished by this, for whatever reason they just seem to know "s-it's gonna hit the fan", to whom ever said dogs can't understand us, LOL!

    I think it is probably time to think about getting into classes with dog. I have been to a bunch of classes, not because I can't teach a dog to sit or down, but a good trainer can see things I can't, how I interact with the dog, what I might be telling the dog, that I don't realize because I am not seeing myself. Everything from excessive barking, Dog Obedience, mouthing issues, counter surfing, house breaking trainers will surely teach you the theoretical and hanks on techniques.
