thank you for this suggestion i was thinking about this for a while too-she could feed off the older stable dog's energy...she did meet a few older ones and they usually ignore her or growl when they had enough which is usually in 5 min after they meet-she doesn't get it and just wants to annoy them more haha she's crazy...

Once I tried, asked the owner first if they could meet...then i approached the other dog in an arch(like they should not staight on) and to the bum first it was fine...but i didn't know if this is ok to do or not...

I have had to work hard with this dog to make myself more interesting than other dogs. I'm learning that it is the initial energy of a meeting and he usually calms down after that.

DJEtzel Teach focus on you. Reward for that when dogs are in sight and engage with her. Give her something else to do, and stop approaching strange dogs when your dog is very elevated in intensity/energy.

Year old too friendly help

I have a GSD she's almost a year old...in the beginning she loved all people now she's starting to be cautious aroud strangers-which isn't bad I kind of like my arm not ripping out of the socket every time a human walks past her
But around dogs...she's still crazy...wants to meet every dog pulling towards them, lying on the ground and catapulting herself when the dog comes closer to us...really frustrating...
If she knows the dog it's even worse-crying loudly cant shut her up..
It's kind of my fault we started doggie school really early i think this started the problem/the love for other dogs...
She got bitten a couple of times-just because she doesn't read the other dogs body language and just comes straight up in it's face(never slowly or sniffing the butt first)...
So please any ideas
