There is a reason that pups whose breeds were working dogs tend to be highly intelligent, and how competitive dogs tend to be from such breeds who are renowned for their smarts.
This intelligence allows the dog to not only be highly trainable, but also incredibly good at decision-making. Unfortunately, this means that when an intelligent, trained pup refuses to listen to you, it very likely means they know what you want and have decided to just ignore you!
Such is definitely the case with Shadow, a German Shepherd. Try as she might to get his attention for kisses, he ignores Mom at every turn. He even turns his snout away from her, such is the degree of his stubbornness!
Who knows why he decided to part from his norm of being a very affectionate pup. Maybe he just wants to tease Mom for a change! What a silly pup.
