One main thing I found is the only time she does it is if they are heading back towards our rooms, or if they are near the way to get to them. Also if the person sits down she is then fine and comes to then, and lets them pet her. Its the standing up that she does not seem to like, and she reacts to it.
I've been working on it, and she's slowly getting better with people but she isn't totally out of it. I know she was abused in her last home so she was afraid of everyone but me at first. Now she isn't afraid of anyone in the house.
In going to begin working on the commands, and if she goes after someone now, and I say stop before she gets to close she will stop and leave them.

The nipping from behind is a sign of an insecure dog, not an aggressive one.
Give her things to do when people come over so she knows what to do when worried. Work on "down" "place" stuff like that. A dog that has an expectation of what is allowed and how to behave will be easier to control.
Work on this with people she knows first, if you are insure her reaction, crate her to prevent a bite. Your guests have a right to be safe in your home. If you can't do that with her loose, crate her.
My sister rescued GSD is the same way. She has worked tirelessly on the " place" and door greetings and the dog is leashed and in a "down stay" next to her when new people enter the house.

|Whiteshepherds||No it's not normal and nipping can turn to biting. If she's nipping the best place for her when people come over is in a crate or in another room. Have you worked with a trainer?|

We have a white german shepherd ( 1 year 10 months old ) she is fine with certain people. Yet others she will bark at, and some she will go and nip anywhere on the back of their body. Also she is aggressive towards other dogs her size and bigger, but smaller dogs she is perfectly fine with. I do know the home we got her from abused her so it took her a whole to trust everyone in the home that lives with her. Certain people male or female that come in the house she will either bark at or nip them even if they come over pretty often. Other then that she is a loving and amazing dog.
Our last shepherd was protective but was not as aggressive as out new one.
What would you recommend to do, or is it normal behavior ?
Any information will help
