Here is what my trainer suggested when I asked about Cactus growling-  right when the puppy is doing it, come in, pick them up quickly and say "GOTCHA!!" Then turn them in a different direction.  It took about three days of constant observance of my puppy with another dog, but now he does not growl while playing.  This way you are not scaring your puupy by yelling which could make your dog think you don't like it to play with other dogs.

If that doesn't work, try bitter apple spray.  Hear growling, spray it on your puppy's nose.  Again it would take constant obsevation until the problem corrected.  

Best of luck!
