Walking in a arch/curve works. I still do this with Apache. Now as soon as I start to curve he doesn't bark and I tell him come on lets go.
You'll probably never get her to like other dogs, but ignoring them is just as good.

If I were taking the dogs past a house that I know thier dogs would charge the fence barking at my dogs, I would stop before my dogs started looking for the charging dogs, get my dog to look at me, good dog good dog, specially if the other dogs were out and my dog was not looking at them. Then I would end the session, not go any further.
My dogs love my liver brownies so much I can get there attention back to me in a snap, want the recipe?

The recipie sounds pretty fun, I'll bet they'd enjoy them.

1 cup flour
2 cups potato flakes
1/2 cup chicken broth (can use 1 cup to make more moist)
2 eggs
1lb of liver (beef or chicken)
1 teaspoon garlic powder (I use less)
I use my food processer to chop the liver. Pour into mixing bowl. I put the chicken broth & eggs in the food processer (makes for easier cleaning). Then mix all ingredients together. Put in greased pan (I use 2 cake pans).
Bake for 25-30 minutes.
When ever I say "brownies" my dogs get excited. I used them when trying to convince Kiya she shouldn't eat the new kitten.
