Learn to state boundaries for you and your dog in clear simple ways. Say NO in unemotional ways with no need to justify. Use leverage and consequences to enforce. So if the people in the house try to cross the boundaries, use leverage, they get nothing from you. If it is the dog, unemotionally put him in a crate or another room for a time out. Make him/her work for every piece of food. Make the people work for every piece of food. ;-)
I'm a therapist so you know where this is coming from and said in a kind supportive way, get some therapy and find a trainer. And again, to me, therapy is a wonderful gift.
