This question is about: Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise

A year ago I moved into a park model at an RV Park and at about the same time she went deaf. She barks frantically at every person that walks by. I have tried everything to get her to stop. Different harnesses, squirting water, bark collar, calm aid, (she isn't treat motivated). She bit me twice when trying to get her down from the window. I am afraid she is going to get us evicted. We got complaints today. I can only walk her when no other dogs are in site.

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger

Hello, our new dog, Leila, 1.5 year old Pit, was left at the pound from her previous owner for being aggressive. Previous owners said she attacked their dog at home, however she came in with a bunch of bite wounds to her temple so we are not sure what happened between the previous two dogs since she was also very injured. The whole time (45 days) she was at the pound she showed no signs of aggression and even was caged with another dog. We took her home to our male 1.5 year old Pit/Mastif mix and they got along great. We have had her for almost 2 weeks now and just last night she attacked him. She was outside with my fiancé and the dogs next door were going crazy behind the fence. She got a little worked up so my fiancé tried to bring her inside, It was dark and she didn't see my other (male) dog inside and he happened to jump/bump into her. She suddenly attacked. Once my fiancé got her off of him, she instantly (seemed like) she felt horrible. She was trying to lick him and go near him and her head and ears were down like she knew she was wrong. She went right to her crate. This morning she kept trying to play with him and lick him although he wants nothing to do with her now. She has showed no signs like this, especially towards him (they were getting along so great the last week and a half) and now I am worried, because she was "labeled" the same way when she came in. I am wondering if she was just startled in the dark and didn't realize it was him, but I am now nervous of course I don't want it to happen again. I am not sure what we need to do? I have reached out to some local trainers. I don't want him to be afraid of her, but I want to make sure it doesn't happen again. Even when we take her on walks she never seems to get aggressive like that towards other dogs. The neighbors dogs are wild and crazy so I am thinking they got her worked up and anxious, but does this sound like it will be repeat behavior with our dog at home?

This question is about: Aggression to a dog or other animal or where the dog is aggressive to the owner or a stranger Barking at people, dogs, animals, birds or where the dog barks for attention or at the slightest noise Hyperactivity

My dogs name is muffin. She's an Australian Shepherd mixed with Pitbul so ofcourse she's jittery sometimes, but let's get down to a major problem I'm dealing with, with her. We're on the verge of getting her a fence, so we leave her outside freely to potty and play. Well I live in a nice community so of curse people walk or run; nobody wants to walk by our house bc of our dog, she sees ppl comming by and she feels she must protect the property and she stays back and growls and bark at them and then goes up to them until I finally catch a hold on her and in the process she doesn't listen to my command. But she never bites people she barks at them first and then can't stop jumping on them. Any suggestion, please help!
