Re the neighbors above, some people just don't like dogs... if a dog barks once, they then start to believe that it is barking "all day". They will notice the negative a lot sooner than the positive.
Also, not sure how the sound proofing is in your building, but I find it hard to believe that the people above you would hear more than those below or in the hallway...
Personally, I would go with the building manager and people below you reports re her barking. She is young. She will adjust!!
