Mine aren't, they are pretty good when I'm giving attention to other dogs. Kassie is very protective of me, though. Especially when she's with me while I groom. If I have one rowdy dog one the table, she'll be on the ground barking and telling them off till they settle. If the dog doesn't settle down, it can become irritating but Kassie will listen and go settle down in her crate after I tell her enough, go lay down.
