She's showing signs of protecting you.  If you spend time with the new neighbors (children). She may be willing to accept them. But, don't be surprised if she doesn't.  If you do give her Prozac. If will take about a month to see effects.  I see no reason to put her down. She's only doing what she knows.

I have never thought of a fence within a fence!

I also never will leave her outside unattended even if there is a fence.  It’s impossible to catch her alarm barking if I’m not right there to redirect.


Euthanizing her never crossed my mind until that rescue had said it.  She’s never bitten anyone, so it seemed extreme.

I believe they sell those enclosers on Amazon. You get can them for one to two dogs. They even have ones that are covered from the sun.

Suck it, dickwad. I am an excellent dog-mom with an impeccably well behaved fur citizen.
Some people shouldn't be raised by humans, and this is why.
Now, As for the dog, you need some educational training for more tools in your toolbox for counters to the inadvertant reinforcement you have given to the poor behavior. Dog/human trainer if you can. Call Cesar?

If just you,
1. lots of excersize pre-training session
2. Training with gentle increasing exposure to fear sources, positive reward, ignore fear posturing, redirct energy.

It is a commitment to redirect energy, but it seems like you have the love for it.

That is not "training" her.  That is confusing her.

I don't give a fuck what the dog thinks, or you either for that matter. I gave the suggestion to @Jypsie based on my experience with the worse basket case of a dog I've ever met in my life that happened to work.

If you have any input besides bashing other's methods, I am sure the OP would appreciate your input. If not, then there's no reason for you to be posting in this thread.

From what I have read and watched about dogs, that guest is pretty spot on. That being said, not all dogs are the same or respond to the same methods. There will always be exceptions out there that require something different.

I understand how someone could be at the end of their rope with a troubled dog and willing to try anything that might possibly work, including treats as rewards for desired acceptable behavior.

Could that guest have provided their information in a less condescending way, sure. Were they wrong with their information, not in my opinion.

Love ya Catch, not trying to stir shit, just looking at it from a different angle is all.
True, for my Boston, the magic motivator was not food, but a lazer pointer.
She will do ANYTHING for the DOT.

You could never stir shit with me, I have way too much respect for you for that to ever happen Drinks

My point is that Jypsie has her back against the wall and is running out of time. Any dog is going to be easily motivated with food treats and any "shortcut" is going to be beneficial in the short term. I understand the whole "Alpha is the only way to go" thing, but that usually takes some time to establish if the dog has already been in the family for awhile.

Plus, I disagree with the Guests comment that the treat/event approach would confuse the dog. I think they're more intelligent than that and it's essentially a step in creating some sort of communication with them. Once they understand "doorbell is good", then you can take a firmer approach and wean them off the treats.

I'm no Ceasar Millan and I've got a few scars that prove I don't always know what I'm talking about, but the whole treat/event thing seemed to bring about the least amount of blood Chuckle

Slow your roll hotshot.. no one is "bashing" a fuckin thing.

I've been working with dogs for over 40 years, all types.

I gave her the best "advice" that is available. and that is for her to learn dogs.

And if you" don't give a fuck what the dog thinks".. thats not very helpful is it? For the dog or her.

An insecure dog is an aggressive dog, she needs to learn "dog".

And just so you know.. I'll post where ever I feel like posting.
Ahhhhh.
Just reading the story is so heavy. I can hardly imagine how you could bear it.

That is definitely a wound that will never quite heal. But as everyone else has given you, there are definitely ways to let her heal and become a good dog again in every way
Good luck and blessings
