I have 1-1/2 year old Female standard, I want to see how other standards react to strangers. My girl is a wonderful dog, she goes with me everywhere that she is allowed, she is always on her best behavior, people think she is a service dog. But, she does not warm up to people, she will smell them, then turn her head away, and take a step back, she does not go up to anyone wanting attention, and does not want to be petted. Now, for me and my wife she is near us every minute she can be, she loves to snuggle, and lay beside us all the time, very loving and affectionate. There are two other standard females at the dog park I go to, one will run up to me and give me all kinds of love, the other does not care about me in the least. I have taken my girl around with me every sense she was safe to go out in public, she has never have anyone be mean to her, but she has always been leery of people even as a little puppy.
