I will need to ask you some questions about what you are seeing to help me come up with a plan of action. I do see that you are offline which is fine. When you have a free moment you can answer the questions below and I will get back to you when I am online again tomorrow.

Is she spayed?

What makes you think she is alpha?

Why do you thing she is possessive, is it because she acts out when walking on leash?

Is she possessive over other items she values?

You said she was socialized as a puppy, how often do you train her in obedience?

Is she still socialized in any type of forum, day car , dog park, etc. and if so how does she respond to other dogs?

Please tell me what you do when you are walking her and she acts out.
