A problem I have with my dog is when we arrive to a dog park. As soon as she sees a dog park, she gets overly excited and starts whining and barking uncontrollably. When she gets past the gate into the park she goes back to normal. How do l train her to be calm when we arrive to the dog park? I can tell people get nervous when we arrive. They probably think my dog is aggressive when she’s not.

Have you tried treats as a distraction and ultimately a reward for staying calm? You could get her to sit nicely before going in to the park. If she is a puppy she might outgrow it anyways.
