Well some folks don't understand subtle and I'm more than happy to translate! ...NO, YOU ARE WRONG!

You asked for help and the first part of getting it, is learning to make sound decisions based on available information. Look for patterns and make sound decisions based on what seems to be a patterns.

Sunflowers Maggie is not a blunt person, but she is saying that the dog thinks he is in charge and you need a trainer to show you how to take charge of him because if you don't, this will not be the only thing he does.

MaggieRoseLee He is showing dominance over you, that's my point.

He's in charge of who you pet.

He's in charge of letting the other dog near you.

If YOU were in charge, and he knew it, this wouldn't be a behavior you would see.

Have fun in dog classes, you'll be amazed how much more respect and love you get once your dog gets the balance in the home.

You should be in charge and he should know it. YOU allow the other dogs near (or not), you can pet whoever you want. Once you allow one of the dogs decide these are his decision over you then you are losing control.

How are the dog classes going? Have you talked to your instructor? This is one of the many reasons we go so WE learn how to be the calm leader in the home and our dogs learn to look to us for guidance, rather than taking charge cause they can.

Have you been working on all of --> http://www.germanshepherds.com/forum...s-puppies.html

Good luck! Talk to your instructor they should have more recommendation to get you back into the leadership role so your pup doesn't feel they can fill that void.

New shepherd showing jealousy?

I have a three dog household that has a husky, German shepherd, and a shepherd mix. The shepherd is the newest of the three and we've had him for a couple of months now. He and the Husky are both males, and I have been having trouble with the shepherd barking and growling whenever I pet the husky or he gets near me. Anyone have any idea of what could cause this behavior? Is it a pack structure type deal? He doesn't care if the female mix is around me it's just the husky. He also likes to block doorways when the husky is coming in the house and snap at him (not aggressively) and bark at him. Thanks
