    How do I get my 7 month old labradoodle not to run to other dogs and people when out for a walk can't get her back can be embarrassing. thanks

    Keep her on a non-retractable leash. Take her to obedience training classes so you can learn how to promote desirable behavior, and discourage undesirable behavior. And practice, practice, practice the lessons, especially Recall ("Come!"). But really, keep her on a leash when walking!
