Not many know what the yellow bandana is.
Be clear with strangers. Its great you are working on it, in the real world were yes people do approach and frankly a good looking dog is a convo magnet! Everyone wants to say hello to a gorgeous beast. You are best to take an reactive moment like that and as another member said "correct it" or take the route less travelled and work on things in a semi controlled environment. There was a rottie in tys old ob class, he was a fearful dog that had no issues biting, his owner brought him every Sunday and worked woth him at a distance making sure not to overwhelm him and we all knew not to touch him, he did very well ! He even approached andrew at the end of a class for a pat.
