The only time she reacts this way is when I'm involved in conversation with somebody or not paying attention to her, she'll either bark continuously or go pick up a stick (which I normally try to keep away from her because I know what happens when she starts to possess on a stick, but as I said when I'm in conversation I'm not paying attention to her -- god forbid). So anyway she'll find a stick, lay down and you can't go near her. If you try she starts to give you the lip, which to me means stay the hell away from me and my stick. The only way I can snap her out of it is to just simply walk away and let her forget about it. I've tried just about everything else and nothing seems to work. Does your dog have possession issues? Does your dog get jealous when you're not paying attention to them? And if so how do you handle these issues?
