Set up a little TV tray 20 feet down the path with a bowl of treats and a sign that says, "My dog is scared of strangers; please toss her a treat when you walk by, but also please ignore her," or something like that. :| Might be worth doing as the weather picks up and people are out walking. :|


This sounds like an interesting idea.
If I came across it while hiking somewhere, I would toss treats to the dog.

I like that I wouldn't have to put anyone on the spot who didn't want to help.
