I'm not really sure what you're asking in this thread, but yes, drooling can be indicative of a dog feeling insecure or fearful. If that's the only sign your dog is showing at a given moment, I wouldn't worry TOO much about it. Just watch her body language and such. Is she food motivated?

Listen.. just because your dog can't play offleash with other dogs does NOT mean she can never be social at all. What it does mean, though, is that a stressful environment like a dog park is too much for her right now. And it may ALWAYS be too much for her. But that doesn't mean she can't learn to tolerate other dogs, at least, and behave around them.

After an unfortunate mishap with another dog, I have had alot of success introducing Marge to the same few dogs over and over again. As time went on, she built up relationships with them and thus was comfortable. Now, a couple of months later, we are starting to introduce brand new dogs again.
