I don't agree with this. She doesn't go after every dog, it's certain dogs in particular that trigger her bad behavior. I'm a very social person, and I'm determined to make her very social.
At first I couldn't have her around other people because she'd growl at them and try to bite them, now I've been able to have her around anyone and she loves people now. She's around kids without a problem other than her eventually being an introvert, over in the corner enjoying the smells outside. I don't know what it is with her. She never even played with a tennis ball until a couple of months ago, and she plays with it like a kitten, prouncing around and shaking it
Also, she's fine at previous roommates, she gets excited to go and when we're about to pull into their house she's screaming to get out of the car because she's so excited
