Is there any solution to the problem of my dog?

Our dog 1 & 1/2 yeras male labis a well behaved dog but mostly during summer we face one problem( in winters as well but not very frequent).He picks up anything from road or from home for eg piece of wood,empty boxes of juices, any other article,cushions etcs & starts growing if anyone even passes nearby & yesterday he has bitten our cousin while unknowningly she was just jumping across her.Is there any solution to this problem.One more peculiar thing is there, he doesnot growl on few people like me, my husband & one cousin & handover the things easily.He even realises after bitting but how to stop this habit.

adding to the problem- He understands all commands sit,come, down,drop etc...even if we offer him treat then also he graps thing & take qway treat but this behaviour is also not with everbody but only few members of the family.
I want him not to growl & bite anybody as we r staying in a joint family where we are responsible for his acts, others only disagree.

He is showing dominance as he is a male and since I think only a few take care of him, he is ok with them but the rest of the family he treats as below him in the peaking order. As a pup its much easier to correct this behaviour. But still it is not too late. Please find a professional trainer to help you out as the dog is older and can harm someone if not done properly. He has to be put right down in the peaking order of the entire family including children. Out of curiosity did you get this dog as a pup before it was 2 months of age.

yes we got him at the age of 1 month but he has been trained properly from the age of 4 months.Moreover how can a professional train him when few of our members are not ready of getting involved in a training.
and this behaviour is occassional means he behaves like this once in you can say 2-3 months.Our mom takes care of him daily takes him out,feed him sometimes but still he growls on him attimes.
can you please suggest how can he be trained at home?

Without seeing the exact situation it is very difficult to say, plus it may not be safe also, hence it is better that you contact a trainer to see the dog and the situation and accordingly suggest. Since the dog is quite big I dont wanna suggest something and it back fires. Different things suit different dogs. Training does not always involving going to the park etc it can also be done at home.

You say this behavior comes and goes in months, so it can also be a medical problem such as an ear infection or so. Kindly get the dog throughly checked by the vet too. A good one.

Hope he is not sleeping in your bedroom and on the bed.

I think your dog is hyper active.
Since Labradors are natural retreivers,they pick up things here and there.
He needs to be exercised with a ball or a toy 30 minutes morning and evening to tire him out.
A stern command to leave the object or toy by one who can command your dog is a must.
I think you need to spend some more time with your dog. The growling may be a sign to play with or being possesive about the thing. They are sometimes like this at this stage and become more mature and calm at 2-3 years of age.
