This dog tries a little TOO hard to please. She understands that the spare room is currently hers.. (until we integrate her into the rest of the household, due to kitty) however, in the kitchen is NOT where she gets fed, it's in her room. So she won't eat her food, even when I handed her a piece she kindly takes it (as if not to offend me ) then places it on the floor!

Then she just sat there. Waiting. To be fed. So I grab her food bowl and we go to "her" room and she waits for me to tell her to eat... And she eats.

"Room stuff is mine. House stuff not mine." close enough I guess.

I will say how frustrating it is for the fact that she fewrs and respects men, whike listens maybe 5% to woman. Aka me. I wanted to let her roam the yard, but I stood by the gate since the wood has rotted and the latch is gone (gate looks "closed"). Only thing she does is barrel past me - except I grabbed her collar I intend to build a taller fence, perhaps blockade it temporarily. For the time being she has been on a leash.

I don't trust keeping dogs on leashes (tie outs?) unsupervised. My GSD pup (RIP) was tied out and he got himself wrapped around the metal tie out piece - I had to cut his halter loose because it was so tightly wound

She's now taken to growling at me outdoors. Not indoors, just outdoors. Which is funny since outdoors has been the area I have been working with her the most on. Indoors has been simply "leave it", "sit" and "stay". Outdoors has been all of the above and ten times more!

Except again, I am not afraid of attacks, or this behavior.

Well today near the beginning of our walk thunder started up. Then rain. Then lightning. Nice thing is she is not afraid of thunder storms. But of course she waited until it was pouring rain to pee -.- However... She knows where home is. She wasn't paying attention so I dropped the leash. She even waited for me to open the door, unleash her, and tell her to go in.

Bah everything scares her It is rather confusing... Having to be dominant towards her (like walking straight to her, otherwise she won't pay attention) yet she fears dominance. It's weird.
