How to address our dog's growling to dominate other male dogs?

Our 18 months lab/springer spaniel cross is a very friendly dog in almost all cases - great with kids, adults and dogs. Probably two months ago he started growling at puppies, and now he growls at some male dogs of similar age or even older. Funny though he does not growl at all dogs, for example he never growls at labrador. And he definitely never attacks despite his growling. My guess is it is a dominance issue. How should we address that? We definitely don't want to castrate him just because of that. Appreciate your help.
