Golden Retriever Question

are golden retrievers protective

We have owned 4 golden retrievers only 1 was very protective, our first. He would have given his life for anyone one of the family. He was a fighter, he never started a fight but he always ended them until he was 10+ years old and had cancer. The other 3 were not protective as far as against people, but when i fell from a ladder the last 1 of them came to my rescue and layed done with his head across my neck making sure i was o.k.

Goldens are the most people oriented dogs I have ever had. When you find one that is protective of his/her master it is usually the fault of the trainer, making the dog think he/she is supposed to protect you. My two Goldens go to the dog park and look for pats from the people, they could care less about other dogs.
