My pup never barked until a few weeks ago and now she barks at dogs and children AND she has growled.

A retired trainer said to have her sit when a dog or child approaches, to stroke her and feed her treats so long as she is quiet.

This has worked 7/10 times I'd estimate, but I don't know if it is the best method and I don't know WHAT to do when she 'fails" and barks or growls and barks at the passerby

Can you comment? My deep thanks, all of you are fantastic!
