Her fear issues seem to be primarily to do with strange people who we meet outside on leash, or who come into the house unannounced or without a good introduction. Might a long line complicate those fear issues?
Or do you think it might help make being on-leash No Big Deal? I'm refraining from corrective collars because of the fear, but we HAVE to get the kitty chasing under control pronto.

Sasha likes to sniff the dog when the dog is not looking at her, but if the dog turns her head around, Sasha freaks (goes "Freddy Krueger" on Petie's face!).

Karma is the same way. She is extremely sensitive and any sort of physical correction would be way too much for her. Because she is so sensitive she is usually very willing to work with you when she understands what is appropriate behavior and what you want from her
