|What do you mean by misbehaving? What exactly was she doing?
I think from your description that Sadie probably needs a little reminding about how she needs to act while working. Maybe you can make more trips to dog friendly stores to get her back into working mode? The older SDs can definitely correct me if I'm wrong, it sounds like it's a combination of forgetting the correct way to act because of lack of practice and you being so tired and overwhelmed that the corrections or signals to tell her the behaviors weren't acceptable were absent.
I would start immediately retraining in dog friendly stores until she seems to be getting working behavior back.
like I said I'm new at this so the other SDs can definitely jump on my case and tell me otherwise.
