Zeus is 13 weeks old today, I thought I had a pretty good handle on his socialization, but after today I'm not so sure. I've had people come in and out of my house, mostly family members, and have never had a problem, he would always walk up to them and sniff them and walk away. Today I had an aunt and uncle that I don't see that often stop by, he sniffed them then started barking and would have nothing to do with them, it didn't sound like an aggressive bark and I didn't see any signs of aggression, just barking and hiding behind me. My aunt and uncle have a lot of cats and smell like cats, not sure if that had anything to do with it, but we have a few cats too. I want to make sure I take the proper steps here to correct this behavior, I don't want a large, out of control dog when he is older, any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
