Any advice?

My dog harley is 4 years old and I got him fixed about 2 years ago. And he's a real sweet heart, gentle with the kids and everyone that comes to the house. But lately he's been getting quite territorial over the house in general. Like if someone is walking a dog in the street but infront of our house and he's ini the garage he goes hay wire. If someone is in the neighbors yard he gets growly. Like he'll stay put but growl. It's not all the time but when there's alot of commotion near the household or strange animals or people near by. Sometimes I fear that if the kids open the garage door he'll zoom out one day and possibly get into a dog fight or something.

On a daily basis I've been going over comands he knows like sit stay heel etc. It seems to be helping but he doesn't exactly listen to the kids in the family, he does listen to all the adults though. When a stranger walks in front of the house he doesn't growl as much anymore. I am still open to suggestions though.
