Re: scared of people
When people are around, become an automatic goody dispenser...cheese, hotdogs, chicken, her favortie toy, whatever it takes!
Most people wanted to stop and talk when they saw us out walking, so remain calm, ignore the spazzy pup and give treats. If she kinda understands "sit" try that. Even have the other person, if they don't mind, give her a treat or throw her a treat (most people don't have a problem with this).
Make people fun--"I see people I get stuff! Score!" Even now when we're out and people are coming up to us I say in a fun, happy tone "do you see the people?" What are those peoples doing?"
And just keep at it. Good luck!
