Thank you for you're advice, I'm sorry my first post was kinda sloppy and unclear. The treats where given to her when she didn't react and sat quietly.
I can read her body language she gets really tense, her tail goes I between her legs and the hair on the back of her neck and on her back goes up. She also gets the really intense stare, I have to completely redirect her or turn her the other way in order to break it.
That was a good idea to do tricks to try and distract her! I'm defiantly gonna try that out
I am defiantly gonna try that. i defiantly want her just to ignore them. I don't like when stranger pet my dog without asking either , that's actually part of the reason I got the nose lead for her. She gets so worked up when people walk by its hard to control her. The nose lead has done wonders.
At fist I thought it was a fear thing too, but I think You where right about the bad nerves, she is so sensitive and submissive it's nuts. I think that's part of the reason I was so blind sided by this aggression. At 6 months she started peeing every time went to pick her up or raised our voice at her. I've been working on confidence building, that has helped a bit. We have stopped picking her up unless its absolutely necessary
I have been keeping her in her crate when company comes over, that is one thing I learned fast with my blue nose. He was way more comfortable meeting people outside of his house, then when they came into the house. There isn't a worst feeling then having you're dog snap at someone. Defiantly never wanna come close to that point again.
And since karma didn't seem comfortable meeting people outside the house, I didn't wanna push having to deal with people In her house.
Did you have any dogs with bad nerves, how did you adapt you're methods to deal with that?
