aggressive barker chiweenie mix
I found blanca at the supermarket. She was 11 months old. I opened my car door and she jumped on me. Like she knew me, I was going to leave her there , i really couldn't keep her but she ran into the parking lot and she almost got hit by a car. So i took her home. from the start she was a barker although she is a loving energetic companion . But has a aggressive bark when people walk by . While she is on a leash outside my property she is fine. When she is in the back yard she barks excessivly her hairs on her back go up and charges forward. You wouldn't know how loving and friendly she is because of that behavior she is territorial. Well she is mixed chihuahua and hotdog. both loving but usually a little head strong. I have been trainning her for about a year. She doesn't grow at me when I'm next to her plate any more because I make sure that she sits stays and then i put the plate in front of her and she waits for me to tell her she can eat. Then i take the food plate away and leave the water plate. But have not been successful with trainning her to stop barking and sometimes I allow her to go toward the person so she can see they are harmless but sometimes that doesn't work. The family usually laughs but sometimes she looks so aggressive its scary. But with us she has grown after trainning into loving companion with me my husband and my 4 year old son. She also doesn't like certain neighbors . Especially the neighbors that own dogs. And doesn't get along with female dogs her size. She barks at children aggressively especially small children. She has never bitten anyone she just barks loudly and charges forward. If someone gets close to her she shys away and tries to hide. I'm not sure if I will ever be able to train her but any suggestions are great I cant afford a personal trainner nor cds. She is smart she sits , stays, I tell her down , here and she will jump at her spot in the picture I tell her here and she jumps there . She looks little skinny in picture I found her with worms and later treated her.
