I have a 4 year old staff female that I got from an RSPCA rescue

Customer Question

I have a 4 year old staff female that I got from an RSPCA rescue centre she is a very friendly dog but just lately she has developed an attitude problem she barks at silly things and gets aggressive like if I get out a tape measure or the other night she barked at me when I drew the curtain and put my drink on the window will she also charges at me snaps and rolls over on her back if I walk out and ignore her she will calm down I wonder what to do to control this problem.
