I don't see why corrections are a no no? as she is the master and they are dogs.
Sorry I meant the extent of her behavior is not bad, it could be worse.
Corrections are a no no because most people have no idea how to properly do corrections... if a dog is guarding something you simply remove it and now the dog have nothing to guard...That is a simple teaching technique in itself...if I remove something from my dogs for fussing over it with one another, then give it back later and take it away if they act up again eventually they learn "If I act like a jerk to the other dog when I have this fun thing, mom takes it away, but if I behave and share, it stays"
