Tiny, baby steps. Loads of patience. When the other dog is around, reward your pup the moment her attention is focused on you. Keep doing that. Make yourself more fun and more interesting than any distractions around her. When she's solid with just the distraction of the other dog around, then very slowly start adding other distractions. Don't be afraid to back up and repeat steps as necessary.

I'm sure more experienced folks will chime in with other thoughts, but those are what spring to my mind right away.

And it bears repeating....lots and lots of patience!
