1 >>> your dog is loyal. he doesn't like to cuddle. my last GSD
was well trained, highly socialized and protective but he
didn't like hugs. i never felt he wasn't loyal besides being
loyal is something humans feel or express. i'm not
so sure a dog feels that emotion.

2 >>> her SA could be a training issue.

3 >>> i felt bonded to my pup when i send the deposit
months before he was born. i doubt he felt bonded to
me when he was born. lol.

4 >>> interesting question, very interesting.

2 >>> My bond with Zeeva my GSD however has increased with time. She lets me cuddle with her and lays down by me if I ask her to without moving until I do. In fact I think she's developed a little bit of separation anxiety we've gotten so close...

3 >>> So, do you think your bond with your GSD has grown over time?

4 >>> Do you think dog breed makes a difference with respect to bond over time?
