You absolutely do NOT want to encourage him to bark and/or act aggressive to strangers, especially at this age. Encourage the socializing with people - all types - young, old, large, small, different races. Consider yourself lucky that he is this social.

As he matures, he will begin showing the aloof behavior GSD are known for.

If you haven't started a training class with him yet, this is a perfect age to begin.
