Fear Aggression In 8-Month-Old Aussie

Hi there, I noticed very early on my pup was irrationally fearful. Of nearly everything. Some 6 months later we have made much progress but this fear aggression (not biting but snapping and warning nips) is resurfacing.

It seems the dog park brings it on as he sometimes gets bullied due to his age. I thought we were making big strides here until recently.

His nipping and barking at us has also increased.

Anyone else experience this?
