ok..sure, go get your dog trained to sit, down, and stay...that will fix everything. a behaviorist is going to tell you that you have a dog with dominant issues and is confused in their pack structure. you have 6 kids right? get them all together and show them how to treat the dog and establish a pack structure. if there isnt 100% consistency, dont waste your time and money.
as for the house training issues. get her checked by the vet to be sure there isnt a health issue. assumeing that there isnt, crate her. crate her when your not home, when you get home, let her out to do her business. if she doesnt do her business, she goes back into her crate. do not let her free roam the house, when there is not an activity going on that she could be involved in, crate her. yes it sounds cruel and inhumane but this is not a game, its your house and your ruined carpet. one thing i CANT STAND is an animal pooing and peeing in my house which is why i focus very hard on house training and dont own small dogs...dont feed or water at night. are you free feeding? if so, quit. feed her once in the morning in her crate and once in the afternoon in her crate. offer her water after her last meal and thats it, if she is healthy, she will not die from dehydration over night. this is just my $.02
