My working line puppy is a bit sharper at night?
Hi, I have a 3.5 month old KNPV dutch shepherd X malinois puppy. He is very confident overall but I noticed when I take him out at night he's just a bit sharper to his surroundings. I live in a city so there are strange people walking by, weird noises and such. My guess is he is just young and not used to the environment as of yet. During the day-time nothing seems to faze him, he's social and confident. Should I just take him out more at night? Maybe do some night-time training sessions to get him comfortable? The other night a strange guy was walking down the street being very loud and my puppy barked and charged at him, lunging towards the guy as he walked away. My goal is to have him be a personal protection dog.
