I think the goal(for any dog, regardless of the training venue) is to have the pup see other dogs as no big deal and be neutral when they are around them....not want or need to play, not want or need to seek and destroy.
And never let another dog bully her or vice versa. Socializing doesn't mean playing with other dogs, though never allowing it may cause her to constantly react when she sees other dogs.
By letting her play with dogs(dogs that are stable and she has a relationship with) it may help her in that neutral being. When training time is going on, it is "look at me and lets work now".
