I had the same problem with Copper, she'd been attacked on more than one occasion by huskies and by shepherds (once at obedience class!). She had a general anxiety around larger dogs, and was specifically afraid of anything that looked like a shepherd or husky. If they came too close she would attack them.

Basically I closely monitored the environment when we were out in public. If a dog of the type she feared was present, I would keep her close and under control, but more importanlty I would not allow the other dogs to come near her. I have no qualms about "discouraging" other dogs from coming near, my dog has the right to go for a walk without being molested by other animals. If the other dog's owner doesn't like it, they can keep their dog under control.
