Dogs are very sensitive to patterns of movement, so your dog knows you from a distance because of the way you walk, and up close, your behaviour is familiar and comfortable. Other people move differently and different to her is scary. Being in a crowd of safe people is one way to expose her to all those differences, but you are also seeing specific actions that trigger her. You can imitate those unfamiliar actions at home to get her used to them.
