Whatever breed related "issues" there may have been were made worse by us. We were expecting our first baby and had no business getting a puppy. It wasn't thought out or planned...Someone dropped a puppy at the clinic and he decided he wanted it. He babied it while I prepared for a baby and after a while we had a puppy that wouldn't let me on the couch with them. And he thought it was funny. We never went to formal training and I really just couldn't get past the worry of what could happen if he was jealous of the baby. It was an eye opening experience....

revkenclaflin It is a GSD thing. Some other breeds may have the same trait but I don't think it is a universal dog thing.

misslesleedavis1 As my mom would say, they bond the most to whoever feeds, walks and hangs out with them at 3 am in the yard for poops

LaRen616 My GSD loves my ex and I but he's in love with me.

He also loves his grandma and his uncle Josh.

He's great with everyone though, he's very friendly and very loving.

Galathiel I think it depends on your definition of 'one person dog'. For some breeds, that means they have no real interest in other people, even family members, just looking to their special person. My GSDs seem to have one person that is their 'safety zone' and 'home base'. My pup loves people and is excited (ignoring me), but if I leave the room the world has ended. He wants me in view. If I'm not home, he's fine with my husband or son getting him out of his crate and spending time with him, but he hates if I just leave him with them. I have to crate him first and then they release him.

Shade All the dogs either myself or my family have owned know the family "pack" of both humans and animals regardless of the fact we all live in seperate houses. They are greeted with enthusiasm and fawned over compared to other visitors, but they have one person in particular they gravitate to. For my three personal dogs it's been me by far, they will obey and follow the others but it's reluctant at moments, one snap of my fingers has their full and utter attention lol

Not in my house! I do 100% of the training, and every single one of our females have been Daddy's girls.
Maybe he's doing some sneaky training when you're out

(If you are reading this and haven't responded to the OP feel free to disregard this one or include your answer to this as well)
I tend to think it's a dog thing, if we are talking about dogs without issues.

Chows are one person dogs but I never had one nor would I maybe other dogs are the same?

Wolf/Hybrids never had one pretty sure I never would but I am curious about them?
