|The more you do this, I think, the better it will get. Reward any positive behavior around other dogs (i.e. sniffing or being sniffed) with a small treat and/or verbal praise. (I use tiny bits of carrot). She might also do better with just one other dog over a longer time period, she may be overwhelmed. She stays with you because you are safe and you are her pack. Perhaps if you go and interact a little with other dogs she will get curious and follow (you are showing her they are safe).
I got my little guy just like you when he was a year old and he loves loves loves other dogs. He stands his ground and lets them sniff him like a proud dainty little individual. If they are around for a little while he initiates play. I must say tho that it usually is one dog at a time....ANyone else have any ideas?
Also, good for you working on socializing Lily, it is so good for her!!!
