Rocky is not to crazy about hugs or a lot of petting. We had noticed it but I've not seen anything like this that backs it up. He goes nuts when we get home and seems to like it then, but in normal situations he likes his space. If he's lying on the floor and I lay down beside him he'll get up and walk away.
At his first day of puppy school the first thing the trainer said when she knelt down to him was, oh he's shy!!! We don't know if he'll grow out of it but she just suggested we introduce him to as many people as possible but let him determine his own pace. So we give him plenty of space. When he's really tired he seems to be a lot more receptive.
