If you would like responses, you will need to write more of a description. How old is your dog, how long have you had her, has she got any training, what is happening when she starts to threaten you, what do you do when this happens..........

As JudiW said - we'll need more details. However I would be looking into having her examined by your vet to make sure she's healthy (dogs in pain will snap to defend themselves). If your vet says that she's healthy - then you need to get her into obedience training ASAP. You've got a bond, some trust and some leadership to build with your dog.

Please do not take her on your 12 hour train trip until you have figured out and corrected whatever the problem is.

Your dog could bite, you, or a person, or a child. The risks are too high.

I agree - you've got other threads saying that the dog is polite and friendly and then even others talking about growling, digging and general mayhem.

Vet visit first, Obedience training second - nothing else, do not pass go, do not collect $200 - go directly to your vet and trainer.
