the quality that you are looking for is intrinsic , inherent in the dog and can not be subverted or corrupted by strangers greeting the dog as a youngster -- because generally people do not once the dog starts getting bigger and no longer puppyish .
All the dogs I have , and now my partner is crime or is it crime-prevention Mike Clay , prepared for police service or personal protection , are allowed to receive the attention from strangers who admire the dog , want to ask questions etc. Never , does the dog seek out attention . The dog and then carries on.
Now then , the one thing we don't do is to make the dog inhibited in contact . The dog may not be corrected by the interested person should the dog be a bit rambunctious . They are told ahead of time .
