My she-pup, who is working through something similar, did better today. We went to Lowes, where I gave her the UhUh for barking at folks and reminder her to keep her attention on me. (I brought extra tasty treats). And yes, I bought something I needed at home.
After that we walked along a shopping center sidewalk where she did very well, until we saw a woman smoking a cigarette. But honestly, she doesn't ever see people doing that so I wasn't surprised she did a quick bark at her.
It is easy to forget how much casual training I did with my first dog, going out and about. I am also making sure to take my gal out by herself. She needs to learn for herself about stranger's behaviors and what I expect of her. It seems to be working, patience is key.
