I am married with six kids ranging from 8 to 16 and have 2 gsd's. Diego is 1 1/1 years and Bandit is 6 months. With out a doubt they love each and everyone of us fully "but" they definitely do bond to one person more then others. I don't know if its a "alpha" thing or what but everyone in the house calls them my shadows. I move, they move.
