My dog is the nicest dog ever. She is so sweet kind and filled with love. All she does is lick people and play with them. My dog is the type of dog that would not bite anyone and if someone is messing with her or tying to hurt her she is going to access the situation before doing anything harmful. Today I had my girlfriend's little sister over and my dog loves her but when the little sister started rubbing my dogs face my dog became very aggressive and began growling at her like she was going to bite her. I imediately moved the dog away but I was so surprised because I have never seen my dog exhibit this type of behavior towards anyone at all my dog is the nicest dog ever I can't even yell at my dog or raise my voice because she gets scared. What I think it was was because my dog got jealous or something because I love my dog more than anything but I love my girlfriend's sister too more than anything because I watched her grow up and everything it just seemed like the more attention that I showed to the little sister the more my dog would become aggressive Advice?

Hmmm I was gonna say training but if this is the only time maybe just try and show the dog lots of attention when the little girl is around0

The dog got jealous, yes that's a thing. They're both female, while you (the male in the pack.. so to speak) suddenly paid attention to someone else. It may be because you're too lenient with your dog. You could try training her, like, playing around with both her and the sister at the same time.0
