I think I saw 2ndhandgal say this on another thread and I use this method:
1/3 of dogs Monty is allowed to fully play with (once we get to the field)
1/3 quick hello
1/3 ignore

I make it a point to say: go, say hi!’
They are still young and it is completely normal for him to still be a little over excited when seeing another dog. What I noticed with Monty is that he is much better when he already said hi to some dogs. Then when we see another, he can ignore more easily. Don’t underestimate your pup either, when you let him off lead (in a safe spot) once he gets used to the fact he can sometimes say hi, he will get better and better at trusting you to determine who he is allowed to play with
