Some kind of outburst? :S

My Lexy is 11 weeks and the only time she has barked is when she knows she's about to be fed and I'm trying to make her sit for her food or when a stranger gets to close she will approach happily then bark once and kinda run back. A few minutes ago she really shocked me o.O This morning around 8-9 am I washed a rug in her crate and her bed on top of it because she had big accidents last night. I also blocked part of her crate off to make it smaller to try to prevent accidents even though they were right on her bed -_- I put every thing back in around 11 am. Now it is 6:40 pm and a few minutes ago I saw her in her crate with her bed folded and she was pulled at the rug trying to pull it up and I said no to her I was kind of close to her crate leaning down and she barked a few times at me and I said no again and she barked again and came at me biting me pretty hard. I said no every time and backed off and she kept coming at me so I tried to grab her scruff and say no but she got even more wild!!! Then I tried kind of pinning her down gently holding her neck and body telling her no bite but she struggled and kept moving and trying to bite and finally stayed still and I let her go and she kinda came at me again so I did the same thing pinned her down and left her there and walked across room. Now she is normal following me and staring and when I put my hand in front of her she licked it and tried to shake my hand -.- Now I'm here asking for advice on what I should do if this happens again =[

valreegrl is an unknown quantity at this point
Sounds like you challenged her. You got down low and essentially invited her to a challenge and she accepted. Then you put her into a 'dominant down' which was when you held her down by her neck and she continued to struggle and once you let her up she once again accepted your challenge.

Without seeing her or the exact behavior, this is my best guess. I would also guess that if what you said was exactly how things progressed, you have a dominant female.

Begin basic obedience so you can create a mutual respect. I would also not allow her on furniture and begin practicing NILIF. Once you have established boundries and can control the environment then you can begin inviting her back if you like your dogs to have access to furniture.

Set boundries, become a leader (which doesn't relate to dominant downs and abuse). A leader to a dog is someone that they can trust and respect and the quickest way to get that is through training.

Congratulations! You have a puppy. Without being there, it is really impossible to tell what her motivations were, since she was in the midst of play with her new toy, the blanket, she could have been playing with you. If you haven't read it, pick up The Culture Clash by Jean Donaldson for more insight on human/dog communication (and miscommunication) There is a short excerpt from the book here Empathy 101 – Excerpt from Culture Clash by Jean Donaldson | -

I would really work on socializing this girl, since she sounds to have some stranger fear issues. 100 positive interactions with as many different sizes and kinds of people in the next month is a good goal. Keep the interactions positive in HER mind, meaning if she is uncomfortable with being petted on the head (most dogs are) don't have all these random strangers pet her on the head. She shouldn't be on the ground in a high traffic area (like a pet store, which is where you will find these 100 random people willing and eager to pet your puppy) so you should be able to control the interactions nicely.
Training is a must as mentioned, for any dog you wish to happily live with. Proper training builds bonds and helps your pup figure out what 'being good' is in your mind, since they don't come with a manual that tells them how to act.
Good luck. Puppies are adorable.... and bratty, time consuming, frustrating at times, did I mention adorable?

wow that sounds just like her! she seems to give in more to my bf when he tells her to stop something but when it comes to me it can be totally opposite sometimes lol. it's getting better though now that i understand it might be a dominance thing thank u!

Keep in mind socialization isn't just other animals. Its all types of situations and surroundings.

If she does it again, which she will cause she is a puppy, when she gets past a point you are comfortable I would immediately turn my back, fold arms and get up if you were on the floor. Ignore her, no eye contact, until she responds to your ignoring her by sitting down or chilling out. Let her know YOUR limit on her puppy behavior she will learn if it gets to hard play stops and what you expect from her to get you playing. She will learn, you want to make sure she does before she starts teething, puppy teething is NO FUN, they chew and chew and chew!! lol

If you wait to socialize her with people until she has had all her shots, you will miss her prime socialization window. Once this developmental window closes, you are playing the RE-learning game and trying to overcome or undo fears and behaviors that have 'set'. This is far harder work and in some dogs nearly impossible (depends on what their genetic make up precludes them to)
You just need to limit her exposure to unvaccinated and/or sick dogs AND surfaces (especially porous) that they may have contacted. Stay away from grass and dirt and don't set your puppy down on the ground in high traffic areas. If you are super paranoid, you can carry hand sanitizer and ask that everyone petting your puppy use it before.
The psychological effects of lack of proper socialization can result in issues that are just as deadly to the life of your dog as the threat of parvo. For every tragic story of a pup or dog lost to Parvo, there are 50 where dog lose or battle for their lives because they can not deal properly with strangers or new situations.
Vaccinate, take proper precautions and SOCIALIZE/expose your puppy to as much as you safely can. Good luck

ooh thanks! i been taking her out with me when i shop for her stuff but i always hold her and every time i go out many people wanna pet her and i always warn them about the shots and ask if their hands are clean to be safe for her. and to be extra safe i wipe her body with wipes before she enters home. her last booster shots are on oct 6 =/ she's been good about everyone that pets her! for some reason the only person she will kind of hesitate to go to and be scared and bark at is my bf's mom. oh and btw she is okay to be around dogs that i know for sure are vaccinated? and how long does parvo take to show?
