I just got my female about five days ago. The breeder we got her from was a male and he "said" she had been around a bunch of kids and other people but im starting to doubt that. My husband came with me to get her and she rode right beside us on the way home. He had to go to work the next day and has been at work for the last four, only really seeing her for about two hours a night. She flat out refuses to go to him. We have done where he gives her treats and she is getting a little better but im still kind of worried. I took her to my grandparents today and it took her about three hours to warm up to them though she still wouldnt go up to be pat. I know i need to do A LOT more socialization with her, which is a big to do these upcoming weeks. My question is if this is normal for a 17 week old puppy and what else i should be doing??
