I found my black lab much more easy to keep then my gsds but i didnt feel safe with the lab. The lab did put other dogs in their place though very well and knew how to fight other dogs but just didn't guard me the way my gsd knows how to. I find gsds smarter also. But yeah they are very diff. Just my experience the lab was easier to keep though by far. Every breed i had growing up didnt really prepare me for a high drive gsds to be honest which is more work than all of them put together. But i find they were more pets like my cat while my gsd is a real hobby as well as a pet. Like a horse.

I agree tho many labs and goldens do know how to put other dogs in their place lol while good gsds can put a person in their place

Tanna (female) is a Rott-Chow mix that is 6
Wyatt (male)is a pb Border Collie that is almost 7
and Cree (female) pb GSD that is 19 months

Tanna is queen (she became queen when I had to put down my first GSD Cheyenne) and Cree is second, Wyatt just doesn't care about that stuff. I believe Tanna will always push to be queen, so I see squables in our future.

I have:

Jerry - 2 year old male GSD, neutered
Snowball - a possible terrier/chihuahua mix female who is at least 9 years old, spayed

Not sure who is the alpha yet, as Jerry has only been with us a couple of weeks and they really don't interact too much, other than Snowball growling when Jerry gets too playful (which he ignores.) They will lay near each other, him on his bed on the floor and her on the ottoman beside it, and are fine walking around together but that's about it for their interaction. I don't ever leave them alone together.

Snowball did push Jerry out of his food bowl the other day and he just watched her eat until I noticed she had snuck in there and shooed her away. Not exactly sure how a 10 pound dog pushes an 80 pound dog out of the way.

At my mother's house, her 8 year old female spayed rough collie is definitely in charge. They met this weekend and if she looked at Jerry right, he would turn and go the other direction.

I have 7 Mals (yes I am slightly insane)
(our beautiful GSD passed away over a year ago
3 males, 4 females. Males are all working, 2 for the Sheriff's office, 1 female working, 1 retired, 2 young girls in training. oldest male definitely king.
1 cat who for whatever reason likes to get in the crates with the dogs, or plays with their tails, or sits on top of the crate and bats at their ears.
1 polish chicken in the dining room (she was injured (not by the dogs) and is waiting to return to flock)
