Hopefully it's just over excited 'rude' puppy behavior. If he's genetically got a good stable temperament, and you did the early socialization you described, then continuing with the dog classes will set this all right.

Puppy Agression to Strangers
Hi everyone! This is my first post, and I'm really excited to get some advice from other GSD owners! Me and my Boyfriend are having a little problem with Dover.
Dover is 7 Months old, we got him when he was 3 months, the people who had the puppies said that they were not as socialized with people as they could be, but at such a young age we figured we could socialize him plenty. Dover was around tons of people, all the time, we took him to events in our local town, he has met tons of people. We have recently noticed, after his neuter that he seems to be showing some aggression to strangers when he is on his leash he barks uncontrollably and its very hard to settle him down. He lunges towards people like he is trying to attack them, if he knows he person it is a lot less barking, and no lunging.
I don't want anything to happen where he injures someone else. Otherwise he is a great dog, other then his puppy mouthing, and I wish I could still trust him around strangers
