How old he? We have to be careful when they are still young to socialize and have them realize other dogs are ok (not that he has to interact or play with them all). Sometimes if we always get strict and commanding when other dogs are coming near, it may may our dogs think they are BAD or SCARY or things along those lines. Rather than just an ordinary part of life and lets keep going.

Think if it was leashed dogs coming past, I'd just put him on the opposite side of me (so it would be new dog, me, my dog) as we pass and keep on moving.

You doing group dog classes? They gave me alot of skills that were very helpful when out in the real world. And my pups gained alot of confidence in me AND in my leadership/guidance as a result of the classes.
