Any advice on this?

Our 15 month old Corgi use to be very well behaved. She could off leash walk at our heels for miles, all her obedience commands were spot on, we could leave her out of crate all day while we were gone with no problems..til now.

When we got Apollo she changed a little bit, as in not listening quite as well. We blamed it on bringing in a ittie bittie puppy, and she thought if he didnt have to listen then she didnt. Well we started working on her commands again and she got better. The past month she's been on my very last nerve. She is very obviously my husbands dog. She listens to his every word, and is constantly at his feet when he is home. He's in the Military so is gone a lot, this month he is home 1-2 days a week if were lucky. During the days he is gone she is terrible. She will sit at the back door and growl all day, bark all night in her crate, rips up her blanket in her crate (which we have taken away until she learns better), and just today I left her out of her crate for less than 10 minutes while I brought Apollo over to give the neighbor their Christmas card and she tore up a rug and the dish towel off the stove handle. It's almost like shes mad that my husband is gone and takes it out on me.

Now, she gets walked every evening for 2 miles give or take until her little Corgi legs get tired and she starts to lag behind, she gets individual attention and we go over her basics. We did have an attempted break in a few months ago but neither the dogs nor my husband and I were home. I'm not sure what else to do! We are putting her back through OB training when Apollo goes in January. It's sad that Apollo (our doberman) is 6 months old and listens to my every word the first time, and she acts like I don't exist until I get mad.
