True this! To that end maybe I should also clarify a statement I made. I said that timid dogs sometimes set other dogs off. This is true but what I should have said that they set off other dogs who maybe run a bit timid or are borderline bullies themselves. I run a private dog park and deal with dozens of dogs on a daily basis. I will say that the timid dogs pretty much NEVER set off the balanced, confident dogs it is generally the dogs that exhibit "false" confidence but are actually pretty fearful themselves.

Ditto. If she was harassing other dogs, and they would have given her a warning and back off and she would continue to harass, it would be an entirely different story.

However, I used to work in a dog day care center. Small space, lots of dogs and it was never the good and balanced dogs that reacted on fearful dogs. It was those that first hid for two weeks in a tube before they dared to even look at the pack. Those were the dogs, that then were thought of "Oh they became so confident, look at that" and then reacted on other fearful dogs, later down the road.
