I posted a couple days ago and for some reason it was flagged as something which needed to be approved by a moderator or something to that effect, I have no idea.

In a nutshell, walks just don't cut it for exercise and you mentioned play exercise last...when she was "overloaded". Exercise her more so the "overloaded" isn't happening.

The 'extinction burst" advice provided is good advice. If you cave, you just took two steps backwards.

The dog is nearing adolescence and could be retesting boundaries. Research NILIF training and employ it 100%. The dog earns EVERYTHING! including your attention and affection.

Sit on the dog! You work at home and have the perfect opportunity to employ this technique. It might be a test of wills and patience but if you give in, you lose and the dog wins. http://sanityshome.blogspot.com/2010/01/sit-on-dog-aka-long-down.html

Train an off switch. Everything has a distinct beginning and ending per your command and actions.

Train today for what you want tomorrow.
