I would not be overly concerned. My dog Timber, at 20 months did that just last night. We have a moderate flood here in SE Wisconsin and a friend came by last night to ask if he could store his motorcycle. The hair on the dog went straight up, so before letting the friend in I made Timber go to his cage. Subsequently, Timber settles, the friend sat down and things were fine.

It happens, but the best advice I got was to re-direct the dog's attention. The second best was he is not a lab or retriever, and there may be situations in which the dog will become protective or defensive.

As for why he reacted that way toward a specific dog, I have no idea.
