TheDakotaShow I feel the same exact way. But the other day I went to the vet where my 5 month old just got her spay done at and the nurse had to take her to the back and she fought her all the way to the back. So I patiently waited outside and grabbed a snack and when she came out she came straight for me and of course I had to get that treat in. Because we are of course their everything right?

BTW. I think my 5 month old wants to eat me sometimes

petite Fawn was aloof to me as well and would rather follow my older dog around. However my older dog is aloof to her in return, so it works for us. I worked hard on engagement with her and now she follows me around and I can't even go into the restroom without her. She's only snuggles when she first wakes up or late at night when she's tired.

Yes, it would certainly help

Sunflowers I would also be very careful when they get older, and watch for SSA. Same-sex aggression. Look that up so you'll know what to watch for.

It's important that you set aside time that just you and the pup are training/playing together without your other dog around. Your puppy will naturally want to bond with your other dog before you.

The best way to build a good bond is with good training

KayDub My GSD pup fights me doesn't want to be held or kissed she'll nip me ,groan, struggle away so it seems to be fairly normal of the breed. My dog does all this but I still have a video of her saying momma in my latest thread on this site. So just like my dog I'm sure yours loves you and has it's own specail attachment they just don't show it the way some pups do,

Sounds about right.....The GSDs I have had over the decades support most of what you are saying....especially the " they don't just freely love you for no reason. The dog has to have a reason to trust and respect you "....I am an advocate that most all dogs crave a leader....and GSDs are a bit more demanding in this department.....but once you fulfill their "requirements" in the leader department....you have a dog which will go through heII with you by your side....
