Aussie Reacts To Other Dogs

My Aussie is 16 months old. See go nuts when she sees another dog. She would also do this with joggers and bikers but the "look" command has helped with this.

She seems to act out of fear but it looks like aggression. If she goes up to another dog she acts normal. Some dogs she acts skiddish.

She has been through some socialization but after 6 months this behavior seems to have increased.

Any suggestions on how to curve this behavior. Thanks.

I am interested to find out how to curb this behavior as well. My aussie does a similar behavior.

I have been having the same issues. I took him as a puppy to many different places to socialize him, but now at a year, he is still a barker at some strangers and all dogs he doesn't know until he can go say hi. But what owner would let a dog say hi to another that is barking.
