That's her hackles. She's getting riled up about something. It is pretty much indicating she doesn't like whatever she's barking at. though in some cases it can happen during play too. When is she barking?

Titan's go up whenever someone is on our property and he starts barking or when he feels threatened by another dog.

Raised hackles occur during excitement and aggression (used generic - protective, fear etc etc). Look at the rest of her body language to further determine the reason for the hackles.

How old is your pup/dog? As far as barking at strangers, she should be redirected by using a toy/treat or command.
