I think Maddie's anxiety issues are due in part to perhaps not being socialized enough when she was young. We just didn't expose her to enough experiences, I guess.
So, is it voice? Or just the face
that captures me, and haunts me so.
Or, am I meant to never know?

I'd totally agree with this - and further, each breeder knows (or should know) what works best with their bloodline when it comes to getting a puppy through the puppy stages sound, both physically and mentally eh.

any behavior/personality characteristic is part Nature and part enviroment and how much a role either had to play in any particular characteristic is speculation.

well i m no expert so have not much to add except that yeah i went on my first hike at about 14 months... and it wuz fun!! mestill likes to hike and go billygoating lots (run up and down hills). me didn't jump until after a year old, and more like at 2 yrs old.

re: the OP.... yeah i wuz the same way. had to take walks to go potty (in apartment and can't go in there). i would often not walk where my person wuz walking that's fer sure! i didn't seem like i enjoyed walks. i dunno how the stoopid leash thing wurks. i walks in opposite direction, i flat bassets on the ground, i wanted to return home on my walks. my person said what a weirdo i am for not wanting to be outside and not wanting to take walks.

WELL all that changed at some point (a warning to ya lol!) and now I luvs going outside, and now I do the PULLING the person around, not the other way around. in fact i'm really good at leash pulling

your puppy will learn and figure it out at some point. it just takes time (like months and months) and then it will turn around. bwahahahaha!!

also, this is just us, but becuz we had a doxie with neck/back problems and we were told to stop using a collar, i never been walked with a collar, just a harness. i would personally not yank very hard on that collar. we like harness better becuz it distributes the force more evenly and not just to neck area.
see what the Worm is up to:
