First off, I love Gemma's name and I love Gemma... She is so cute, I could just steal her! You are doing great by building her confidence. Like a previous poster said, don't coddle or carry too much. Encourage confidence on the lead, pay attention to your pups actions, if she is getting nervous, stop your walk, regain her focus, put her in a sit and reward her for good behavior then try again. I've heard a lot about nervous chis and my last papillon was a nervous one, so I've been over exposing Belle. We have been going to schools, convalescent homes, stores, walks, and lots of loud noises.
It also helps walking her with our big gsd mix! No one wants to approach us then, for some reason! Good luck to you, again, I just love her!
