Default Dealing with a dog being reactive

Mitsu is actually not that reactive, only reacts to dogs who react to her, as in jumping, barking, growling. Otherwise she ignores or wants to just give them a friendly smell.

I've been doing the "look at me" game whenever a person or dog walks by, which is helping tons, but whenever a reactive dogs gets reactive towards Mitsu, Mitsu reacts back.

For example the other day we went walking by a Giant Schnauzer who was in the front yard tied up, and there was another schnauzer off leash running around and as soon as the Schnauzer saw our dogs she flippped, lunging, barking growling. And Mitsu started having a fit and wanting to get back at the dog, but not overly agressive.

But the good news is she got over it pretty fast and we walked passed a lovely lab who Mitsu just ignored.

But I wanted some other tips I can do, that Im not already doing.
