Does my neighbor's Great Dane hate me?
Whenever she sees me, she does this bark at me that sounds a bit territorial and stands up (and jumps sometimes while holding on to the gate) while wagging his tail. My dad says she looks like she wants to maul me up.
She and her owners have known me for a few years, and I never did anything bad to her at all over the years.
And she still barks at me loudly for some reason.

Many dogs are territorial, though a smart dog will eventually learn that neighbors aren't a threat.
You might talk to your neighbor about giving the dog a treat once in a while.

Sounds like she wants to be petted, jumping up & wagging the tail is more like a greeting than an aggressive move.

Throw it some hot dogs or cheese now and then. Should change its attitude.
