I don't want my dogs to be social butterflys that wag tails, beg for scratches and treats from strangers. I don't want my gsds to take anything from anybody but their immediate family. Yes, I've had some poisoning issues in the past. I want my dogs to tolerate a scratch on the chin or head, if I say its okay. No one gets to come up to my dogs without me giving them permission to do so. Then I tell the person and my dog that it is okay. Everybody is on the same page. No surprises. Why put a fearful dog into a public stressful situation? If you know she's stressed, its up to you to keep that situation from happening. At the family picnics, she would probably feel very secure laying under the shaded table, on top of your feet - leashed. If you want to be the social butterfly, leave her home
