Re: Easily identifiable temperament in pups?

I agree with Angie.

The physical connection the mother has carrying the pups will have a big influence on the pups temperament both good and bad.

She can transmit her nerves, clear head, whatever.

As a kid I recall old time hunters talking about this and I believe it is the beginning of the nature part of nature vs nurture.

Maybe true, maybe not but I've always been a believer in it.

Absolutely but if the mom is clear headed and mature enough for breeding then nature will take over.

Re: Easily identifiable temperament in pups?

Defense in temperament? Surely not so easy to define in a pup? Please share your thoughts for a newbie.

As this wont develop till the dog is 18 months or so. Are there indicators early on. e.g. very confident!
For those of you with these dogs, could you tell earlier when they were immature?
