an overprotective Shepherd?
Hi everyone. I am new to this site and am seeking some advice. I have a 2 year old GS female who is extremely overprotective at home. When she is outside and someone walks/runs by the house...she starts barking and tries to chase after them. However, if I notice that someone is about to walk by I have her sit and she doesn't put her scruff up or bark. Even when she is inside and sees someone out the window she goes nuts.
She has never bit anyone, but there was a time during which she ran after someone. Also, if I ever take her out somewhere, like the park, she doesn't bark at or try to chase anyone.
Is there anything I can do about this? I'd like to be able to play with her in the yard off leash but she's definitely not ready.
