Genetically anxious?

I've posted on here a few times about my reactive GSD bitch. We have good and bad days but things seem to be improving...... slowly.

I've been told a few times now by trainers and supposed GSD specialists that she is anxious as a result of her genetics. She has a slight stripe down her back and today somebody told me that is a sign of a line known to produce anxious dogs. I can pinpoint some big mistakes we've made with our dog but I'm getting a bit disheartened and fed up of being told she will always be this way. Her breeder is fantastic and we met her mum, dad and grandmother who all have great temperaments.

Has anyone on here ever heard of this stripe down the back being a bad thing?
