Everything is a threat
She is so attached to this baby, you wouldn't believe!
Let's start with this; I was told she was a Lab/Shepard who was done growing. Nope. What I have is possibly the most stereotypical Great Pyrenees on earth, and she is maybe a year and a half. She is so loving and sweet, but then another dog, even a small pup approaches our 3 month old and suddenly she is snarling and barking and lunging. As soon as she is between the dog and the baby, it is instantly different. She resumes sniffing and playing with the other dog. I live in town, I need to break her of this without her completely giving up protecting the baby. I was not equipped for this kind of dog, but she is here and we love her! We just need to work on that. Please help! I want to take her to obedience classes, but there are other dogs there and I really can not predict how she will act. It seems when I introduce other dogs she immediately goes into beast mode, but once she sees the baby is safe is a sweet little angel again and loves other dogs. All of those dogs however, have stood down.
