Jug Dog Personality

408 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  DaySleepers
I was confused my Jug Milford is now 1 years old and what was on my mind is it normal for this breed to be more homebody types and not that outgoing at times? I am that way as a person so I figure maybe he is following me? we do walk as well as play and have ''tv time'' so I don't think he is depressed far from it, he is good with other dogs but doesn't go out of his way is more reserved

It's very normal for dogs to become more discerning about who they socialize with and less interested in playing with every possible strange dog and human as they mature. Not too different from us, really, if you think about the difference between how a group of 4-year-olds who don't know each other interact compared to 14-year-olds! I wouldn't be concerned at all if he just seems like he's less interested in being everyone's instant friend. If you start noticing he's less interested in participating in other activities he enjoys, it might be worth a vet visit to check for underlying pain or other medical issues, but from your description it's most likely just a case of your boy growing up.
