I'm thinking that isn't normal. My son also goes away for college and we only had our male GSD before he left, but when he comes home for a visit the dog follows him everywhere and loves him. Have you tried taking over the care of the dog while your home...like feeding, playing catch, or going for walks? Height even sense your fear and using that against you.
