Hi, I am really in need of help here. Sorry in advance for the long story. My grandmother moved in almost a year ago with her two dogs, we had 4 in the home already, so now that makes 6 and also a cat. We ended up moving 3 of the dogs to my mother's house and the cat as well because we didn't know how my grandmother's dogs would be with the cat and such a crowded house. We figured it was better to be safe than sorry. We did everything we could to make as little stress for the dogs durring their transition. They have a room of their own where they can get away from my dog when they need to and my dog gets confined to my room when they start to bicker. They were all getting along until about 2 months after they had been living with us. Now here is the problem, my grandmother's dogs have barely been handled both of them were originally other family members dogs when they were unceremoniously dumped at my grandmothers house because they did not want their dogs anymore. Both of them got new dogs now. The older dog is 14, he is a lover and just wants pets and love. Generally he isn't a problem at all. The younger dog however is a Dutch shepherd mix. My cousin adopted her then 4 months later dropped her at my grandmother's house because he didn't like her. This dog is now 3 years old. When I come and go from the house she barks. But a person at the door is normal for some dogs to bark at. Even after she sees it is me though she continues to bark. I can not get her to stop. She barks at me as I move through the house, my German shepherd is always at my side, he never lunges or barks at her and other than your normal dog things he is very well behaved, the Dutch shepherd mix will bite at his back legs, bite at my legs and arms when I reach down to pet my dog, and when I try to climb or descend the stairs in our house. When I scold her for it she runs to my grandmother who I can not get to understand to not praise her for these actions, now when I say scold I mean raise at her and push her away I would never hit a dog. I have tried everything I can think of, positive re enforcement doesnt work either. I have tried giving her treats when she stops barking at me and telling her she is a good girl. Her actions are especially bad when my grandmother is in the room with me, or when my dog is in the room with me. If both things happen forget it, my dog and I are the bad guys and nothing stops her. My grandmother laughs it off and praises her letting her sit on her lap and petting her while the dog continuously barks at me, needless to say she thinks her dog is the most well behaved dog and that it must be my dogs fault. I'm at my wits end any help or suggestions on how to approach and correct this behavior would be helpful. I refuse to get rid of or give up on any animal. They all have the capacity to be good, and I dont want any of them to have to move out.
