Default Please help my boxer gets cery protective!!

Ok so my boxer is about 14 months old. I have always brought him to a dog park since i brought him home. My sister an my parents have dogs so any family get togeter he socializes. When he was about 8 months old he started getting very protective of water bowls. If we were at the dog park and tere was water he would just circle it and not let any oter dog drink. Now yest we were at the dog park and another dog and him were chasing the tennis ball. Let me tell you he lost it. He picked up the ball. All his hair stood up. Growled at any dog that webt bear him and his ball. I got him and laid him down and his side and just kept pettig him till he calmed down then we left. What can i do to help this situation? Any input is greatly appreciated. I must note he was neutered at 6 months.
Thanks in advance to everyone.

Hire a trainer to work one on one with you and your dog. With out professional help this will only get worse.

I agree that you need to hire a trainer. In the mean time, never ever ever pet him or talk to him or touch him at all when he's behaving like this. All you're doing is praising him for his behaviour which is going to cause the problem to escalate much faster. Touch him for long enough to get the leash on him, and then leave.
