My shepherd acts similarly when at the park. There's 2 areas, but I have 2 very large dogs and don't trust the training of other peoples dogs so I keep my dogs alone in one area, while most people bring their dogs to the other. My shepherd in particular barks through the fence out of frustration, when I bring him alone I bring him over but with both dogs I rather not risk any issues. He barks mostly because he wants to play and be chased but there's a fence in the way. He'll run along the fence till someone follows him. As for actual on leash issues, I think a big problem is the dog feels as though it's got a lack of control over the situation and they're on neutral territory, which can be scary and frustrating. I meet many dogs with this problem, who lunge at my dogs. My dogs have never had a leash issue, just the fence situation but hopefully someone here will be able to offer a concrete solution for you.
