6. Such pretty dogs! I used to have Schnauzers. :-)
I have the same problem my youngest corgi who is also 1 1/2. Taking her to classes has helped a lot, but she only stopped barking at those dogs, not all dogs. She also barks at dogs on TV.

Two methods that I have seen and used are: 1. Make the dog sit and stay until the other dog passes (Cesar Milan); 2. Turn around and walk the other way (Victoria Stilwell). Reward when quiet.

It takes a lot of repetition, though, and neither method is perfect. The best thing is lots of exposure to new situations, but if the dog is freaking out, keep it short and end on a successful note.

Good luck.
