We meet other dogs most days on our walks and have done since we stated walking, he has always been a bit nervous of other dogs and often submits (lies down, rolls over and plays dead) but in the past couple of weeks he has started barking at other dogs even if they are quite far away. Should i be worried or has he just found his voice and is using it to make himself look brave?

Today a neighbors dog was out the front playing ball as we came back from our walk and pup started barking, i made his sit and said 'shushhhhh' and once he calmed down we carried on walking. Is this how i should deal with it or is there a better way?
