|See....I warned you about the toy transfer I'd just keep the line on her, that way you don't need to be right there if she starts to snarl. It's really better than "no"....to just interrupt the behavior, where the "no" can add a little tension. Did that make sense? This way, you can just pick up her line and walk her away from the situation. And keep the opportunities to a minimum.
She's probably at the age where she is starting to test. Seems pretty composed so far. But again, you need to stay level headed as she is in a new environment and not too secure, so I wouldn't let your guard down on the situation. I be less trusting just as a safety, for as I said, breeder purchased dogs dropped off this young....does prick the ears and very often attaches to a problem that will surface.
I am very all breed....know the breed well, but intimately less than five individuals. I've messaged the main NE person on this board, who has been on the breed many years in every level. Hopefully she'll show up to give her breed insider take of this behavior at this age.
