so luna is now 4 months old and my little fluffball is the sweetest puppy she loves everyone and usually runs to the owners on the park before the dogs so she can get some fuss but ......
the past few days I've noticed her getting a little shouty with other dogs who rushed her to start with (which i have no problem with) but today we were walking on a more secluded bit of the park and she threw up her hackles and was barking at another dog walker who was walking down an embankment to fetch his dog.
i know shepherds can be a little defensive of owners but i felt no fear or unease with this man and she wasnt rushing him....just barking from a distance.
my question is....was this fear from her or a little bit of guarding??

Our pups go thru different stages and phases, the fear stage is a big one that we need to guide them thru. The hackles and barking can also be from just excitement as well.
