Default need some advice, pom going crazy

We could an 8 month old pomeranian and a 4 year old chihuahua. Now that summer has hit, we've been talking our dogs out on walks. Let me preface this by saying that our chihuahua walks perfectly fine. He heels, doesn't bark, etc.

Our pom on the other hand, walks like he is on a mission to do god knows what. Walking like he is marching in an army. As soon as he sees another person, dog, anything, he flips out and goes nuts with barking and trying to run at them. We've done everything we can to try to get his attention back on us, but it's like we don't exist when this happens. He is not an aggressive dog at all, once he gets close enough to people he just starts jumping and wagging his tail looking for love.

So the question is, what steps should we take to resolve this behavior? I suspect shorter walks, with tons of rewarding for eye contact and good walking, but what else can we do? How should we react in situations where he seems to go off the wall and won't stop barking at a person/dog?
