Default Gun shy

How do hunters and stuff train their dogs not to be gun shy. I have a 8 month old dobie who's scared of airguns and stuff. My pitbull is really tolerant of guns because I used to shoot airguns around the house all the time. Unfortunatly I can't do that anymore because my neibors started complaining. I really want my dobie to be tolerant of loud noises and guns and stuff because I just got a new black powder pistol but if I want to shoot it I have to go about 2-3 miles down the road. I would like to have my dobie tag along but I really don't want to scare the crap out of her and have her run away and not come back. How can I approach this. Do I tie her up and start shooting then go and give her treats. Should I just start her off with the airguns first? I know she's still young and I don't want to make the wronge impression on her. Thanks for any advice.
Focus on the ignorance.

Work slow, train hard.
