My pup is nearly 5 months old and has been EXTREMELY independent since I got him. It's tough to get him to follow me anytime we're on a walk unless he is starving and I have a pile of food. He doesn't like to engage in play with me for any longer than a minute before he picks something else up and wanders off with it. He's very food-motivated and spends his day thinking of ways to get to the closet where we keep the food.
I feel like we've done tons of bonding time but it baffles me that I'm forced to reel him in on a leash every time because whatever blade of grass in front of him is far more interesting than me.
Is this normal behavior or is this a symptom of something wrong?
