Mini Aussie Aggression

I love my Mini Aussie, but I now have to take her out of my neighborhood to walk. Otherwise she will bark and act aggressive to the kids in the area. Any suggestions?

work within threshold

Consider walking at different times to run into fewer kids. Also, work within her threshold. If she starts barking at 50 feet away, then you need to turn around when you're 51 feet away. Praise and give her a treat when she sees them but before she barks, then turn around and leave it on a good note. Over time her threshold will get smaller.
