Yea, it is obvious that you are doing a great job of helping!
"it is not always the same with some kinds of aggression.." Huh?

You are wrong, I am helping. Now if you do not like what I say is up to you. I see people all the time with aggressive dogs and it is not always the same with some kinds of aggression, believe me.

Give the OP a break - they sound like they have a difficult situation and are asking the right questions and trying their best to do the right thing!

I had a off the wall dog with aggression and I had to find a certain kind of trainer to help me with him and not just a pet trainer because that did not work (not saying I know anything about your trainer, ok). One of the dogs I have now that people do not like can be aggressive but his drive is so crazy too. He has popped a lot of balls, my kids hate that (their fault if they let the ball get around him). Lastnight my daughter was sitting on the floor and he inched over there to put his head on her lap. I do not let my dogs make up their own mind how they are going to treat someone aggression to be sure, but I told her he is wanting to be friends.

Good morning all..responding to Harmony. I did indeed respond to your question/suggestion. Didn't mean my response to sound anything but sincere. I was just answering regarding treats, etc. I am new to the site, so maybe I'm not posting correctly? Again, sorry.
Jane - thanks. I agree with your suggestion, as that is the way we handled her when we first adopted her. No direct eye contact, etc. and that worked. Also loved the info re: NILIF on K9deb site. As the trainer said, remember she is "an invited guest". Lol. Thanks all. Just trying to get as many opinions as possible and I'm appreciative of anyone taking the time to respond.

|harmony||Have you ever stood up and take control, you mean what you say, and you say what you mean! I have seen to many dogs left out because of what you said, take control! I have to ask how hard is that? And why is your kid giving the dog treats? Have you trained the beast yet? Aggression and fear do not always fit into the same category|
