Why is she even meeting other dogs? This is something you do not do.. on leash especially. I know of very few dogs who like to meet other dogs face to face. I have German Shepherds and this is something you NEVER do. I wouldn't do it with ANY dog.

Growling is a warning. Get out of my face! But you should be advocating for your dog and not allowing another dog to get that close in the first place. Allowing it tells your dog you don't care and you don't have her back. If you don't have her back she will take it on in her own way. This is the first step to full blown reactivity. Get between her and any other dog and move along.. no meet and greets and when someone asks to pet your dog say NO. They want to pet a dog they can get their own dog.
