I too have the same problem; however, mine is horizontal.  The only way to get rid of it is by not using it and removing it from your software. I hope someone has a better solution than mine.

I believe it's a compositor issue.

Go to - Settings Manager - Window Manager Tweaks - Compositor - Uncheck 'Show shadows under dock windows' .

See link below which illustrates the solution:-

Hope this helps.

I really don't see any practical difference between a dock and a good ol' Xfce panel with launchers.  I admit Cairo dock is pretty, but why add more and more stuffs that all do the same thing?  I think one app for one task is slimmer and faster.  Keep Linux Lite Lite!

 8)  Mart: Thanks for the Hyper-link on fixing a shadow on OS.
       If it happens again I will know what to look for.
      Assume  :)
launchpad.net <-               Kernel 5.2.0
debian.org <-
GitHub.com <-
kde.org <-
I stay busy with LINUX,
Together we are LINUX...!

I'm glad it helped. I had the same 'shadow' problem when using Plank dock in the past.

But I had to stop using Plank due to some screen burn issues around the icons.

Reverted back to a Xfce panel with launchers, as Artim mentioned.

Xfce panel is not as much fun as Plank dock but it does the job all the same.  :)
