Hi there.  I know this trainer personally and for me she would make a good starting point.  Not sure which areas she covers, but it would be worth sending her an email and explaining your situations and where you are.  Lockdown makes things difficult, but taking the first step is important.

Thank You alot snook,

I have had a look at the website it seems great. We have found a trainer to start working with but if all does not go well I will be sure to email the owner of the website

Just wondering how you did  with the dog , was it fixed ,  Made me wonder if it was you not the dog ,, reason i say that is  in the past i've always had big dogs , 2 boxers who were  so obeidient i did'nt even need a leash , then  a massive sheperd , who was good with or without the leash ,, then  we had  rottweilers , one a male  , the later one a female  , each and eveyone of these dogs were great on and off lead , they were all gentle giants ,,  but  when the wife took the rottys for a walk  , they were different ,  epseielly the female rotty , she was such a loving gentle dog ,    we found out after she died , even the neighbors kids used to jump the fence to play with her when we were out . But when out with the wife , she would get very protective ,  one day a guy stopped to talk to the wife , and she attacked his dog when it  came in for a pat of the wife , EVERY other time she was gentle with dogs cats and people ,  just changed when the wife took her out  on leash ,

I always told the wife they could sence her being nervous , and stopped her walking the dogs

It sounds more like the dog was resource guarding your wife.

 

Please don’t blame her. It’s not her fault.
