He makes a good point. Just because it's not present at 6-8 weeks does not mean it's missing. That's where it takes a breeder that knows the lines and how they mature. Pan wanted nothing to do with toys until he was about 6 months old. He was very mellow. Definitely a confident, pushy dog but not hyper active and not really interested in doing lots of fetching or playing obedience for toys. At around six months that lightbulb turned on, almost over night. With only a few months of training he became the fastest U-Fli German Shepherd in North America, so I would certainly not call his drive missing or unpronounced, lol. He's just a slow maturing dog, in almost every way. He is almost 2.5 years and still developing in certain areas, physically and mentally.
