Question Picking her up from the breeder with/without my fiance with me

On Friday I'll be bringing our new pup home. My question is this:

It's an hour and fifteen to get back home from the breeder. If one of us picks her up without the other person, will that first bit of time affect how she grows up? Will she become more affectionate/attached to the person who picked them up?

No i seriously doubt it would, it takes time to bond. I'm glad when we went to pick up our puppy that my fiance came with us! The breeder ending up not being home and we had to wait around 6+ hours and then drive home at 1 am and we lived 5 or so hours away! Yep so glad he came!!!

I hope not. My puppy was shipped in. I'd have been mad if she bonded with the baggage handlers.

Snitches get stitches.

I have an introduction post! I don't know if the mods will be happy with a second

I grew up with 2 shepherds, but it's my first one as an adult.

It will not matter but it is such a fun trip to go pick up your pup!
