Recently my 5 year old golden (Bails) has started to have an attitude with other dogs. He has been always been very playful with other dogs and people. But just in the past week his attitude has changed and he is aggressive towards other dogs. He snaps at them without any reason but they are near him.
Does anyone know why this could happen?

He could be in pain from illness or injury, or it's possible he has a thyroid imbalance, those are the first things that come to mind.

Totally agree with Mylissyk here. Perhaps a check over at the vets is in order? Has he had any bad experiences with dogs just prior to this change in his behavior?

Sounds like he's not feeling well for some reason. May want to get him checked out by the vet.
