They'll ( your family) get over it. Just keep the dogs away from each other. I really makes me mad when these people with smaller dogs let them act out. I took Jasira to the dogpark one day and this lady had 2 minpins there. I never just let my dogs go with strange dogs. I brought Jasira, my year old female GSD, in on a leash and asked," Are your dogs friendly?" She goes," Oh yes. They like big dogs." Well, one of her "friendly" dogs was doing growling, snarling lunges at Jas the minute she walked in. She would flinch every time the little "thing" would charge her. I said," I'm leaving. I don't want my dogs to learn how to fight." The women goes," No. I'll go. They are usually good with bigger dogs." Ya, right lady. Like it was Jas' fault her dog was acting out. And guess who would get the blame if Jas defended herself? The big, bad, mean,German Shepherd. Some people need to be smacked up along side the head, HARD.
