Yeah, I can relate to the SO and having other people training Tucker. SO does the blowing in the face but at the same time has a really soft presence so Tucker gets nippy when he comes over. Somehow I'm supposed to fix that (he doesn't nip anyone else - I did fix that as a puppy) while he's pulling away and basically initiating play with him. Regardless of how many times I say stand your ground and don't let him do that (not dominating, just don't be a pushover) he still doesn't get it.

As for the MY dog thing, yes. I'm fortunate enough to have close friends that know a ton about dogs and are active in the dog training/rescue community. They correct dogs very similarly to how I do and yet when they do it to Tucker I get this small flare of anger like "How dare you correct my dog." Even if it's something I would do in that situation, I just hate when other people do it. And don't even get me started on the people who know nothing about dogs and try it.
