If you would describe some of her behavioral problems in more detail we might be able to offer some insights.

she humps our legs alot and then she nips at our heels and then over a treat she will growel and attempt to bite. there is no problem over her normal food. she rough plays with husband and her mum and dad dog.she doesnt listen to commands like come here but she will sit when told to but wont look you in the eye and she will jump up if excited when she wants to. basicly she wont listen and chases her tail aggresivly which is coming more of a problem as she snapped at my hsubands finger when he got in the way. ive come to conclussion the tail chasing isnt for fun and thinking about going to vet about it. as she comes aggressive when near her when doing it.she chases out cat and pushes her out of the room. she barks alot and goes for people heels. im sure there is otehr stuff that she does but cant remeber. not sure if she is just spoilt and she needs training but there isnt anywhere close to us for any of that so i have to do it myself.

I wouldn't say dominance problems... I would say complusive behaviours.

Get the dog some solid exercise and some obedience lessons... All should work out fine.
