|You're doing great!
Keep up the exposure to safe, non-reactive dogs as much as you can, even if it is just passing them on the sidewalk.
For yourself, do your best to be calm and confident whenever you approach another dog. Make sure you are not tensing in anticipation of something bad happening. Chaplin can pick up on that and learn the same thing. Have him learn your confidence instead.
This is a lesson I learned from direct experience. It is very difficult for my body to let go of traumatic events. But for my dog, I will strive to do the improbable.
