Also when I do submit her, all the pups and kids wanna come around and kinda see whats going on so I figure letting the pups sniff her while she is submitted is also showing they are above her? Seems like it would anyhow so I let them all see her up close and personal. Hope that is a good thing anyhow.
    We've attempted the submitting too! This little PITA actually does relax. The little stinker is a game player. As soon as she relaxes I will slowly release my hold on her. This little girl holds a grudge and she is back at it. We also banish her to another room, which she could care less about. We also feed her after Vegas. And, as you know....her stinky bear is ALWAYS in time out.

    It pisses Orion off when Vegas gets near her when she's submitted. I allow him to sniff her and sit by her when she's submitted. But like I said, she may appear like she's given up.......but as soon as I let her go, she let's Vegas know her true feelings.

    She usually gets up with a better attitude. She submits instantly and I have found when I let her up maybe too quickly, like 1 minute or so she may get back at it, then submit again and longer. I am trying to keep her there for a few minutes even tho she gives in right away. She started as being mouthy but having only had her for what 4 months or so and she has changed this fast? That is making me anxious. I have been keeping close when she is with the rest of the family/pack. Bones are a trigger, who is chewing the one she wants. So if she is chewing one and Cutty shows interest in it, I am taking it from her and giving it to him. if she is good I will replace it with a different one. Same with Mugsy. He is the one who really is afraid of her more so I stay close to him and make sure she knows HE is first in line at picking what bone he wants to chew. Trying to keep her off the couches completely right now too. Especially after Linda said that biting the back of the neck is a kill bite, which is what she did to Mugsy. No broken skin or anything so I know it hasnt progressed to that point yet but that is not an option to allow either. I am just trying to constantly show that she is last on the totem pole by far, hopefully she will get this. Now while feeding her I am making her take a break from eating and sit/stay again after having started her food. Again reminding her that I say when she does or doesnt eat. Also I am petting her and making sure she isnt getting food aggressive with me too. So far that is ok. What in heck was I thinking when I got her?! LMAO I thought I was helping the boys by bringing her in, think I was wrong. lol

    Same exact thing with Banks.... once she was trained with it, all we have to do is pick up the remote and she thinks twice about what she is going to do. However, there have been times that she is so 'in the zone' the shock did NOTHING and we had to tackle (yes, tackle her) to get her submitted and calmed.

    @Libra926 I was cut off by a phone call. Wanted to also say that is a trigger for miila also. Bumping, nudging etc. Yesterday while doing laundry I was tripping over her and that triggered her. Haven't ever tried the collar but if it works nothing wrong with it. Better that than having a pup get out of control and then what? Rather be able to control them than have a baby get hurt.

    sorry - I didn't explain quite well enough!! you can tell the difference between play and attack !!!
    when thee attack comes and front feet come off the floor, and the bite is shoulder,flank. or high on the head, those are referred to as Kill bites.
    cheek, or ear, are called I am pissed at you and telling you so!

    I do not think that this would work on any dog once they get into that red zone, or full on mad. But I always have kept a brightly color spray water bottle in all rooms of the house. and any time some body acts up , I grab and spray /say STOP !! soon all you need is to show the bottle!!! set them to spray straight out a thin line of water straight to the eyes!!!! I have done this will all my dogs starting as puppies, and all fosters no matter what age, all but a few have responded very well. one or two I had to add a small amount of lemon juice,(then I aim for the mouth )

    I have gotten out my spray bottle already today, funny you mention it. The lemon juice is a great idea when the water novelty wears off and it will. I was using it when we first got miila to work on her regular behaviors that were not so great. Havent needed it in a long time but now she is pulling this so I will try anything. Hasnt had a fight today but I am so on it today she is wearing me out. Have had to bust her many times for trying or thinking to start. ugh...... How long does it usually take before they realize you are the boss and they have to listen? lol

    Like any child, she will always try to push the envelope and when she knows your not watching..... but, timing will depend on your consistency and her stubbornness (yea, yea, I know bulldog).

    funny you should say that , because -when I got mad , I would stomp my foot, and shake my head back and forth, and let my mouth be loose so it made a bubu /wierd sound with my cheeks going back and forth, and gave a sweep of my arm, and they all scattered!!!give a grumphh sound !! like kids,-they know they've gone to far. but the lemon juice in the kisser usually wakes them up -along with the bright color bottle seriously holding it up alone works well pretty soon>>

    Dont know if it is working yet cuz I am so on her she hasnt gotten to snap much BUT last night she was so extra cuddly and laid next to Mugsy on the couch. Something that doesnt regularly happen. (I am letting her on the couch when she is snuggly and calm) He also then cleaned her face like crazy before bed. Hopefully that is a good sign anyhow.
