Default Took Buddy to a dog park

So Buddy is almost 16wks old, and I decided to take him to a dog park, There were two other dogs there (Large Breed) Labs, and Buddy is now at 50lbs, and I was afraid to take him off his leash because his hair stood up on his back, and he was growling and showing his teeth, so I kept him on leash and walked him around, I made him sit every time another dog came up to him to sniff him, which did help the situation some, but when ever a small dog came up he was fine. Is this because he spends all day with 3 other small dogs, or because he is still young? I signed him up for the puppy class at Petsmart just to try and socialize him more, What else could I do to try and get this under control?
