My 4 month old pup is showing protective instincts?
I have a solid black 4 month GSD. She is starting to show her protective behavior. When I walk her she always switches sides but I happen to notice she always gets to the side where a dog is. If another dog barks at us or comes towards us she barks and growls & attempts to go after them. She tries to keep my other dogs away, shes not agressive with them she just kind of jumps on them! LOL she walks behind me & she is always on the look out, & she hasnt showed protective instincts towards a person. Maybe because shes just starting? Is this normal though? She turned 16 weeks friday.
