your dog isnt being protective. she's being fearful. she is unsure and nervous about people coming towards her so she barks and lunges and is basically trying to scare them away. i'm sure this probably isnt the "advice" you want to hear but you should get a qualified trainer in your area to help you. a dog that is unsure of all people in general can be quite dangerous. i had a dog that would just be laying there and if someone walks by what he considers "his room" he will go crazy and bark and growl. this type of dog is really nervy and it will only get worst with age. i'd seek advice from a qualified trainer instead of us internet experts because cases like these arent an easy fix.
