9 Month Old Molly Is Too Protective Of Visitors In The House
I have had Molly (adopted her from a rescue) for almost 3 months and she has settled in quite well. We are currently taking obedience classes (this is my first Aussie) so that we can bond. She is turning out to be a wonderful dog (3 weeks into having her I wondered if I had made a mistake with adopting this breed) but I have 1 problem - she goes nuts when we have visitors come into the house. She barks violently and I believe she would bite if I allowed her to get close to the visitor. How can I break her of this? She is completely sweet to anyone when we are away from home (on a walk, at the dog park, at the pet store, etc) but when she is on her "home turf" she turns into a monster! I would LOVE any suggestions or advice... Thanks! Susan
