    By correcting, I mean I've tried everything from telling her its wrong, that things are okay to picking her up and holding her until she stops growling. I've let her have her way and left her alone but then am confused that I'm letting her dictate the rules of this relationship (or more appropriately "who's the boss here." She insists on being next to me but I may casually extend my arm (not meaning to touch her at all) and she starts growling or may snap. She understands "no bite."

    I feel that because she does this I have failed in providing her a safe and comfortable home. I've never hit her and she's been with me long enough to know I wouldn't hurt her. She comes to me when afraid and unsure and I comfort her.

    I do respect her growl but is this really all I can do. I made the video to show as an example.You can see her nose twitch even before I touch her. Any advice?

    Forum wont let me post link to you tube video this is it though https://

    Thanks for the response. While he just started to act like a mule outside, due to the blindness, I guess, he never played with toys inside, so it is the not walking outside that is a concern. He is always on a leash and will pass on your tip about having him smell a treat to get going.

    Was just lying in bed and you posted about feeding Zody his midnight kibble and reminded me I hadn't gave Buster his! Thanks for reminding me!
