aww sweet girl - it can take a bit to get approved b/c mods are volunteers but you will!

as far as the other dogs I would not let her meet them right now and just treat her for seating and behaving nicely etc. while they walk on by.... tell others she is in training or whatever... avoid the face to face greets when the other dogs get snarky etc. until you can get more advice and proceed...

web surfing tonite and saw this from from Bad rap and just what I was getting at so though I'd post (read more at : http://www.badrap.org/node/98 - also so many good links within it and also here http://www.badrap.org/training-resources)

If someone insists on rushing their dog up to meet yours, just hold out your hand, step in front of your dog, smile brightly and say, "Sorry! We're in training right now!" Don't be shy - It's our responsibility as dog owners to protect our pets from potentially negative experiences. It's perfectly OKAY for your dog not to greet every dog he encounters.
