At any age, but especially when so young, this would be an upsetting experience. Often it settles after a coule of weeks, but sometimes it might lead to a more enduring fear of dogs, which would be unfortunately limiting in life. Wait a little longer to see if these concerns are lasting, and if so, a child psychologist could help relatively easily to plan a program to free him from these fears. Meanwhile, lots of hugs and love, and re-assurance that most dogs don't do that, and that he will be allright, will help.
