If he's reacting, then he is over his threshold and you need to add distance until he DOESN'T react, and mark/treat for him looking at the other dogs. Do it FREQUENTLY to build up value in looking at other dogs then back to you for a reward. You shouldn't be calling this anything or talking, just clicking and treating.
