Bonding with your pup

Hi, having some troubles with getting that bond with my little guy, hes about 17 weeks. We spend lots of time together, I do all the feeding and training, so what are some of your favorite ways to bond with your dog?

What do you mean you are having trouble getting that bond? Bonding and relationship take time.... just because you feed him and train him doesn't mean your relationship is shaped the way you would like it... what would you like to see out of him and what do you feel is lacking?

Well my female dutch shepherd does little things like lean on me, in the way she works you can tell she wants to please me, if I let her out of the kennel she comes right up to me and wants to spend time with me. I think I just have too high of expectations for the little guy, this is my first dutch pup I got my female when she was 10 months and seems to be a learning curve. I'd like to see more of him excited to see me or tail wagging when I pet him.
