how can i help my female 2yr old scottish terrier stop being so defensive toward strangers

in may my scotie had a bad experience at a kennel, since then she has been showing signs of defensive aggression. she has always been a shy dog and reluctant to go to strangers but has always been loving and gentle, she was more a 'flight' rather than 'fight' risk. now on more than one ocassion she has been walking (does not seem to make a difference on or off lead) as people come past she will stop in front of us and growl and on 2 occassions she has 'fake charged' people, i have noticed that after the show of aggression she bolts generally back to us or the car i dont know how i can help her
