I think sassing back is a pretty normal puppy thing, and it is very normal for the protection breeds and while some mellow at 6 monthish, some do it later. My 11 month old Dutchie still sasses when he is in his brat state, usually at 6 PM, but while he is confident he is not doing it out of fear aggression.
