I think giving your dog a treat could be confusing to her, she might think she is getting a reward for 'good' behavior. When I think my dog might react to another dog I will walk in the opposite direction so my dog can't made eyes contact with the dog. If I do not have time to do this I will tell my dog to 'leave it' before he can react , but I have to say 'leave it' before Marty start barking out of excitement or he'll get so into mode and it will take longer for him to listen. Marty is getting better about not barking and pulling every time he see a dog. I taught Marty to 'leave it' right away he know what that mean . I think in your case you would want to start getting training right away as your dog is so big and could pull you down .
