Help! I think I've over-socialized my dog....
Katalin is 9 months on the 3rd. She LOVES people, dogs and everything else really. She's got a sunshine, rainbows, and lollipops kinda personality and attitude about her - and it's borderline driving me mad.
Kuvasz are supposed to be aloof/reserved with strangers with a ojerza type wariness from quite a young age onwards. Katalin has NOT displayed any of the above to date. She is extremely friendly, playful and outgoing both at home and when out and about. I know her guardy instincts won't kick in till at least around 2 or so but I wanted to know if it was possible in any other way besides focusing on me, making her sit/down when a stranger passes by, making her calm when walking past other dogs etc to teach her or to install into her a sort of ojerza or aloof attitude?
She doesn't need to be vicious guard dog yet - but if she would just ignore or be indifferent from strangers/random people out on walks rather than super enthusiastic that would be a HUGE improvement...
Call me crazy but I prefer a dog that minds it's own business and doesn't give much of a sh!t about much else besides their handler.
Feudin' and fightin' and a-fussin,'
That's all that's goin' on with us'n!
We are such neighborly people, peaceful and sweet!
All except when we happen to meet.
