Ocassional Snarkiness

I have a question about occasional behaviour on walks. For the most part Bear is great when we are out. We will occasional go to dog parks (off peaks times) and he will play nicely with other dogs.When we meet other dogs when we are out on walks that he has been properly introduced to he is completely fine.
We can even pass by a number of dogs that he is not familiar with and he is ok with the exception of an occasional dog that will act snarky to him first.
If a dog that passes in close proximity to us (or across the street) sees Bear and if the other dog reacts to him with barking, Bear will sometimes react with the same. I usually will correct him with "eh" and leave it and he is usually fine. There is usually no lunging or growling involved.
Is there something else that I should be doing to correct this?
Is this behaviour something that I should be concerned with?

Thanks Stosh. I just want to make sure that it doesn't develop into something more.
He's really been great so far. I realize dogs like people can't like everyone all the time, but I want to make sure I don't mess anything up with him.
My last dog was DA and it was somewhat of a pain, so it's really nice to have a dog that does well with other dogs.
