How do I get my dog to relax around other dogs and strangers while on leash?

She is 3 years old and love doggie day care and dog parks. Shes a social butterfly in that type of setting. However, when shes on leash or at home, she gets very aggressive towards dogs and most people. We've been to a trainer and after a few attempts we found that bitter apple spray stops her from fixating and lunging. We've worked on that for almost a year and shes much better around strangers but still fixates if i don't have the spray, even sometimes when i do if that dog is in her space. Today she pulled out of my hand and attacked a dog for the first time. It was so hard to get her of him off as she wouldn't listen. Im at a loss on how to help her not see everything as a threat or a job. Please help!

What I’ve Tried…

Desensitization Bitter apple spray More exposure to her triggers Trainer
