hey all. Just wondering if you guys can give me a bit of advice? Well i recently got Gem Gem from a rescue centre and i was told she had "a few behavioural problems" so i was well aware this was not going to be a walk in the park by any means! anyway, the only thing that concerns me is her aggressiveness...its getting to the stage where i'm having to pick her up and move her to a separate room when we have guests...any ideas of what i can do? i'm kinda bamboozled!! thinking

well, if you don't mind me beeing bold,, tough love is the answer, don't coddle that just reasures gem gem is right, if you punish,i.e. slap on the nose and a stern no,, goes a long way, make yurself the alpha dog, otherwise gem gem will think she is alpha dog
