Nice chart!!!Not according to all the studies out there.....one study puts your Airedale pretty high on the list compared to the GR. The studies are all a little different in their statistics, but goldens barely even feature on all the lists.
Labs are the number one family dog for a reason, for several years in a row....they are versatile, easy to train, loyal and courageous. There's a reason they are used as guide dogs, cadaver dogs, support dogs, assist dogs, etc. They are just that versatile and all around good dogs.
"Pit bulls were responsible for the highest percentage of reported bites across all the studies (22.5%), followed by mixed breeds (21.2%), and German shepherds (17.8%). Mixed-breed dogs and pit bulls were found to have the highest relative risk of biting, as well as the highest average damage per bite."
"According to the American Animal Hospital Association, the breeds of dog responsible for the most “damaging” bites per year, rank as follows: unknown breeds, pit bull-type breeds, mixed breeds, German Shepherds, terriers and Rottweilers."

Are there really as many dog bites as we think there are? Is one breed responsible for them all? We'll give you the facts in this article.www.caninejournal.com
Here’s a list of the dog breeds known to bite the most:
We had an Akita.. such a well mannered dog with us, good heel when off leash etc.
But with a that great obedience, we had the darndest time keeping her from trying to attack all other dogs.
And right there on your list!
But our Akita was protective of us... if we introduced her to a stranger she was fine... but if a stranger tried to enter the house... she would try to attack.
