Acting out in front of others...

Hi, I am still new here and this is my first time posting so here goes... I have a 5 months old beautiful baby girl who is starting to act out in front of other people. Usually she acts out when I try to take her potty, we live in an apartment so there are lots of different people walking around. Well just today she started crying, barking, and scaring this woman and her child because I wouldn't let Anastasiya run up to these people. Usually when we see people she tries to run towards them and jumps on them and completely ignore me. But it is starting to get worse, I feel like people will think I am hurting her when she cries out like this because as you all know they are very vocal and loud. She loves people and if she sees them they have her full attention like she is under some kind of spell I cannot break. Which is bad when I have to try to take her potty because she will not go if these people have her attention and I am left taking her out multiple times in which she will not go until she absolutely cannot hold it anymore. Please help me, I am not sure what to do as she is my first husky. By the way she is not aggressive by any means so I know it is definitely not that, but of course I do not know exactly what it is.

Welcome to the forum!
What's she doing is called puppy hood
. It's not really new or exciting and you just have to work through it. The best thing I've learned to do is to teach a really good "look" command. Which all that is is if you tell her to "look" - her eyes to meet yours and all her attention and focus is to be on you. Owning a Siberian (and many other breeds of dogs) is all about making yourself more interesting than the people/animals/items/dirt around you.
For quite a few months each time we saw another dog on a walk -all Bella would do is scream. High pitched, could hear her 4 blocks away. I would put her in a down stay and allow her to watch or I would just turn around and go another way. I also taught her "look". Another thing you can do is if you go to take her out and there are people and she starts acting up you can always just go right back inside until she settles. Eventually she learnS that her behaving that way doesn't get her anywhere fast and it especially doesn't allow her to see the people she so desperately wants to see.
