My dog is my best fried.  She is an 8 year old, 112lb, greatdane/boxer mix. I have had her since she was six months old. When she was younger she loved ALLL dogs.  We went to the dog park all the time, hiked, jogged, and walked in public places.  She thought all dogs were her friends.  Over this past year she randomly lunges at other dogs and Seriously acts like she want to kill them.  It is so upsetting and scary.  The other dog owners are obviously scared.  This happens so randomly.  I can't read any body language changes to predict it.  It is just sudden.  She can drag me and I am so afraid that she is going to hurt another dog.  I'm also scared that we will be reported and she will have to be put down.   I feel like I need to be responsible here but I do not know what the responsible thing to do is.  My parents say I need to get a shock collar but I feel like that would only make her more aggressive.  I can't imagine putting her to sleep.  I can put a muzzle on her but, I assume, she will still randomly lunge and scare people and their dogs.  I can't really explain how upsetting it is.  She is so sweet 98% of the time.

Advise would be appreciated.
