Bonding will come with in time. My GSD and I bonded as soon as she came home. Well I felt that way and after a few days I knew she felt that way. I was the one the fed her, played with her, walked her, trained her and I still do. Our bond is unbreakable. With my Alaskan Malamute he seems to have a special bond with my mom and it's amazing because just like my GSD i do everything for him. However, now he is 1 and 3 months and I can feel the bond we have. I usually walk my dogs individually just to have that 1 on 1 time together. Cudi my malamute is really confident and is not always following me and that's great. The way I get my bonding with him is by playing, walking, running, training..etc.
