I brought my 2months old puppy to the dog park to get her to interact with other dogs and when other small dogs got close to her she just growled and barked at them. Shese a Chihuahua/Terrier mix. I will try to bring her to that same dog park every week so she is actually used to it.
But is there anything else i can do to get her used to it or to ‘tame’ her to be comfortable with other dogs?

A dog park is no place for a puppy that young.
You don’t know the health status of the other dogs, your puppy could pick up deadly disease.
Dog parks are HORRIBLE for socialization.
Stay away from park for now and find a good puppy class that makes sure owners keep up with vaccines, health checks, and keep the facility clean.
