That's super-cool! I'm doing something similar with Bree because she's shy/growly around people who move "funny", i.e., kids, folks with walkers, but especially high-pitched/hyper kids playing chase, on swings, etc... So now we go to the local school yard when it's empty, and I play on all the swings and make loud, high-pitch noises and Bree gets treats and a chance to chase a ball if she doesn't react. It does seem to be working, so thanks for the encouraging video!

That could be a good thing to try when Bree's more confident, if there's a path that goes past the playground? You could just take her close and reward her at first, then head back, then build it up to walking past whilst being rewarded :)

That's a great idea! The whole school is surrounded by the only sidewalks in the neighborhood, which makes it an ideal place to walk once she's not quite so growly. And summer is almost here, so there will be lots a chances to practice with small and large groups of children. :)
