Ignoring Strangers and Dogs

Hey I am wanting my German Shephard/lab mix to start ignoring other dogs and strangers as a default reaction and to pay attention to me as a default. She is a 8 month old puppy so I know their is room for "growth". She is constantly alert to any noise or people that are present. I have been feeding her treats and stopping when she cannot see them anymore. Should I continue to do so or are their other exercises we can perform? Thank you.

This right here is the best game I've ever played. I give it to my reactive clients to work on changing their default response to a trigger, but I also use it on my puppies so their default reaction when they see something interesting is to look at me.

As a result (although training engagement certainly helps as well), when we are somewhere exciting, they look around, then back to me, then around then back to me. It isn't too long before it doesn't matter what's happening, they're paying attention to me.
