Our V pup, Pumpkin, is 6m, and I am wondering if we have an oddball, personality "fault" we need to keep in check, or a really birdy/what I would describe as a hunting personality? P is playful with us, socialized, friendly with others, and more relaxed now around other dogs (she was attacked while sleeping by a corgi @ 4m); however, there is an aloof streak in P. She always wants to be around people, likes to touch us with her body, but she is not cuddly. She is not a playful pup with other puppies her age. I would describe her as intense. Today, we went to our 3rd V playdate. There were 9 Vs there & 1 lab. Most pups 7m & under. P ran with the older Vs the entire time. She interacted, sniffing & occasional chase with the other pups, but she never played with them like you'd expect. When in a field or situation like puppy class, she allows folks to pet her, but there isn't reciprocation in interaction (this includes me). She is always looking around, seemingly tight, and just never a goofy pup/dog. Her affection comes in some kisses, greetings w/ a literal smile, and touching of bodies, but once that is over, it's done and she is "ready." I don't know if any of this makes sense? P seems to be very birdy, and like today, demonstrates a pull to woods, running, pointing, smelling, and just on the move constantly. I can tell others are surprised that P is a little standoffish. My husband thinks it's because she is hunting stock, and many moments I agree, but other times I wonder if we have a dog who needs constant socialization to keep uncharacteristic traits at bay? Either way, we love P dearly, so it really doesn't matter; however, I do worry sometimes. Thanks for any feedback & reading this post!
