I think that, is often although not always the case. Years ago when we had a Bearded Collie, my breeder asked if I would befriend a woman that had just purchased a Beardie from her and lived in our town. Beardies I have known have a very similar personalities to Havs. Very loving, love people, other animals and are clowns with a fun and outgoing personality. This woman was a nervous wreck with everything in her life. She constantly worried herself into a state and overall was so negative I eventually had to break ties with her because it was having an effect on me. Her Beardie grew up to be a very nervous dog with biting issues with strangers and our Beardie was the only other dog she liked. The dog was like her in so many ways. She ruined that dog because of what she put out. I felt it when I was with her, so no wonder the dog felt it. The poor dog lived with it constantly. I have seen similar results good and bad with other dogs and their owners.
