Great photos! Molly looks fairly relaxed to me so I don't think she is wound up or nerved up like she would want to fight. We are going thru the same thing with Vazzy now. She is awesome in the house and in our yard but on walks or at public places she goes so crazy. She doesn't want to hurt anyone she is just over excited. We are trying to socialize her as much as we can and she is getting private training. Today in class we noticed that when she was off leash and another dog entered the room, she was totally fine until the dog went near my husband - she was got her hair up and stood in front of my husband and my Molly.

As for baths, try not to bathe too often. We found that Vazzy's food was making her stink and shed. So we switched her off Science Diet and also give her a vitamin E capsule daily (you can use fish oil too). I gave her a bath with herbal dog shampoo mixed with some Selsun Blue human shampoo and it worked perfectly.

When you have to leave her alone try to make your departure as quiet and calm as possible. Give her something fun like a kong toy and some safe stuffed toys, maybe leave on a radio or TV. If possible try to keep her confined to an area that she can't see your driveway or the street. Its less stressful for them if they aren't watching every car and person.
