she might feel at risk because she is on the lead and cannot defend herself.She may have been attacked by a dog while she was on her lead so she will defend first. One of my dogs barks at other dogs but it is just her way of saying play with me. She is not nasty just noisy. If she is fine off the lead with other dogs let her off if you can. My dog goes for certain dogs when we are out. She just doesn't like them. There are loads of other dogs she will play with.

I would say go to a training class for older dogs. Explain to the trainer beforehand the problem and they should help you to socialise your dog. Dogs can feel threatened on the lead and can be less sociable to dogs they don't know. I would ask your vet to recommend a good training class and go from there. Good luck.
