In my case with a 9 month old Lab it's been helpful for him to learn that not all dogs want to play and that some may be snappy.

What would be your objective in confronting her? I doubt it will leave you any happier with the situation.

Smile, Shout hello and give her a wave and walk away smiling.

I would go for the castration route and I'd work on desensitisation methods.
Just my humble opinion of course, you must do what suits you and the dog.

Question: Why would she come back to you when she could run around a big field?

Answer: She would come back to get a high value reward, especially if she was then allowed to go and play again.

I don't trust anyone who thinks you need to physically put a dog into the sit or down position. If you need to do that, you may as well just give up.
