How do I get my puppy to see me as Alpha?
My gsd just turned 9 months old and acts very differently around my boyfriend and I. (we live together)
With him, she is very sweet and affectionate, and listens to what he says.
With me, she is also affectionate, but for like 30 seconds, then she just wants to "bite" my hands, hair, whatever she can get. She doesn't listen to me at all, if I give her a command, she barks back at me and constantly jumps on me.
She has been to two different trainers and is starting a new trainer (in-home this time) on Sunday. She knows all of her commands but is just so stubborn with me! Is it a female thing?
