People at the park don't like the ducks part.

I assume this is just her prey drive and in her nature. I am able to get her into a calm state and get her to watch but I know she wants to go mad running at them and scaring them off.

Is there anything I can do about this? (16 weeks old now)

Work on focus and leave it. Bring her around them all the time. We have tons of geese and ducks where I am. I have had ducks land right next to us and not an issue. My GSD has a med-high prey drive, but she leaves them alone. I think its because she sees them daily. They are on our patio, I feed them in front of her, etc. The pictures attached is normal for us every day of the year, including when it snows:crazy: I thought they leave when the weather gets bad, but not my ducks and geese:crazy:
