My dog is curious but nervous around dogs.She's not aggressive.How can i help her to be more relaxed around other dogs ?

* There have been a few dogs that she has played with before but its very rare.
* She does not run away from the situation instead she sits down when she's nervous.

Enroll her in a beginner training group class where she can learn to interact with other dogs in a safe environment and with you there. Treat her (try Nutro crunchies in banana- yummy smell!) when she does not avoid other dogs and goes up to sniff their behinds or noses. Teach her that standing up is not super-assertive; it's just what dogs do! Sometimes sitting means submission, which is okay also. ^_^
