thanks, I looked through the threads, but the meaning of "napoleon syndrome" didn't occur to me.. I'll try this today. But interestingly, the linked article says these dogs usually react much better off leash, whereas Maschka yells at everyone all the time, unless she meets them individually on her own territory. I'm interested to see whether this is just a quirk to her "syndrome," or whether she has a slightly different anxiety going on!
Also, side point, but might enlighten someone who's dog-savvier than I am --
Today's afternoon walk (longest of the day), when she barked too much at dogs, I lifted up her back end by putting my foot under her tummy. It shut her up. Huh? lol..
