I not only believe dogs respond to our reactions in situations, I believe they respond to our personalities. I have, over the years, discovered people who are happy go lucky have happy dogs. People who are nervous and negative have similar dogs and so on. I knew a woman once, that I had to stop socializing with, because she was so negative with everything. She was depressing to be around. We would walk our dogs together and I felt awful by the end of the walk each time. We both had Bearded Collies. Her dog became skitterish, fearful and a fear biter, something very against type in a Beardie. I swear it was because of her. She worried and stressed over everything. She was toxic.
