It's a good indicator that your dog has some drive in him. It's also a good indicator that you can use tug as a reward for more advanced obedience.
Are these good signs for protection work? Maybe maybe not, depends on who you asked. When my pup was evaluated the trainer just wanted to see if he'll play with a flirt pole and 2 seconds later said yes he can do Schutzhund. Other people want to wait and see. And yet others (myself included) think a drivey dog will help get over certain obstacles and mask some deficiencies if they exist but in no way is indicative of the dog's potential for protection work. The only way to know is to start training in a good club, and see how he pans out
