Default My Puppy "Circles" People Who Try to Pet Her

My puppy, whenever excited to see me, or whenever people want to interact with her, will start circling me (or the person) in a circle.

I can get her to "SIT" and stay still to be petted.

But with other people, she basically seems to approach, sniff, then circle. She basically won't keep still to be petted and while not quite "shying away" from a person's touch, will just walk away after a brief brush/touch.

Is this normal behavior for a GSD?

Is there a way to get a dog to "like" / "stay still" when people try to pet her?
