YOU need to be calm and relaxed to take control and SHOW your puppy that the world is still a great place and you'll be there for him. Redirecting, getting the attention on you (food? toys) BEFORE your pup reacts with the fearful barking to keep the oncoming dog(s) away.

Lots you can do in the DVD 'Calming Signals' by Turid Rugaas to calm your pup. Vital to act early before your pup is overwhelmed and that DVD will show you the quiet calm early cues we humans miss.
