Hi, Im new to the forum having been reading the many threads and reading pipas various books. My partner and I are looking to buy a 11 month lab from a breeder who had it returned due to the owners ill health. The dog has extremely good lines and the breeder is a well known gundog breeder/training school/club. We visited once to view and everything was fine. He was a lovely dog, happy, tail wagging etc. However, when we turned up he was slightly aloof, (i think) he was wagging his tail and bouncing around, but wasn't really interested in us. Didn't let us stroke, just jumped around. The breeder did say this was common for him with new people. Is this a cause for concern? The breeder has had him for 1.5 months as they wanted to ensure his tempermant was good before they sold. Once he got to know us he was fine. Let me playwwith his toy when he had it etc, Has good basic obedience, walks well on a lead, is used to kids and currently lives with over 15 other dogs with no problems. We have a second viewing next week as we expressed our interest and paid a refundable deposit. Any help would be great. Thanks!
