What does it mean when sometimes when my dog see's another dog, the hair between her shoulderblades stick up?

It means that she's on guard and not feeling comfortable with the other dog's presence. Try to work on socialixing her more and make meeting new dogs a positive experience. Remember to stay calm yourself during meetings - she will sense if you are uncomfortable.
