We had a 12 week old Dane here for a week. She towered over two of the dogs here and yet she would have all her fur raise, bark at them and run away. This went on for 24 hours then she got the picture that all was ok and she had a blast for the rest of the week. She then moved on to a home in Ontario with 3 adult great danes for fostering and did the same thing. Now she loves any and all dogs. It's just a confidence thing. I'm not too sure about the moving away and saying quiet as it seems to me that is reinforcing the lack of confidence... I'm not a trainer though so I could very well be wrong.
