All shepherds will follow you around, if I move to another room, both mine follow me, even if there were sleeping, they just like being near you and like the pack together.

Be careful with separation anxiety, she needs to learn that it is ok for you to leave because you will always come back. At this age, start by saying to her 'i'll be back later' or whatever you want, then leave for 20 minutes, then come back, make sure the leaving and returning is calm with no over excitement, if she is too excited when you return, ignore her until she is calm then reward her.

if your GSD is eating and eating and eating and losing weight - please consider testing for EPI.
