Kyra (5 months) has on two occasions wee'd herself in fear (??).....once at night when she thought there was something to bark at. It was almost like her bark itself scared her. The second time was when Kobi chastised her for being "over the top" with him. Please note, she is not scared of him at all and he has never (and would never) hurt her.
Is this something I should be worried about and is it something she will grow out of?

I'd build her confidence and make sure that Kobi isn't showing dominance over her for now. She needs to know you have her back so she can grow confidently. But don't coddle her, have her do things that build character and praise her constantly, redirect not correct type foundation. More often than not, it is a genetic issue, but you can still shape her into a more assertive personality.

Onyx'girl - the thing is, kyra is quite assertive with kobi and isn't at all afraid to take things from him......it was when he was trying to sleep and she wanted to play....he tolerated it for awhile and then gently but firmly told her it was enough. It was like she didn't understand him chastising her!!
