bella is now 5months old & on the whole really good, toilets outside follows basic commands sit/lie down ect and has always loved walkies in the woods/round the corn fields however over the last week or so its become a dread rather than a pleasure
i can't take my 4 & 5 yr old anymore because as soon as she is off lead she goes crazy!
racing to the kids and snapping in a really nasty way, very hard to control bella and protect the kids
she also does this to my eldest when she walks her (shes 20)
not so bad if im walking her or my mother, though she still has a go
its quite a concern at the moment and im unsure what to do, i tried diverting her attention with a ball, tried the sit command and the stay down command with no luck, she just wants to pounce and nip
at home shes great with the kids and soon stops getting too boistrous when told but on walks is just insane!
tried keeping her on her lead but she gets so wound up by this she jumps & bites constantly
any advice greatly appreciated
kirst & bella x
