Hi Michele, you need to get in professional assistance immediately. this situation can quickly get out of control and the last thing you want is for a dog this size to become aggressive. The trouble with this sort of behaviour is that it does escalate. this is a form of Resource Guarding and probably a lack of human/canine hierarchy and professional help in the home is a necessity. Have a look at www.animal-behaviour.org.za for somebody in your area and if you cant find anybody, please contact me via e-mail and i will put you in touch with a professional. Thanks Scotty
