Rusty is my constant shadow but he's not clingy (3.5 years old). To me there's a difference. My neighbors lab constantly rubs against you and will put his head under your hand to be petted, leans against you. I personally find that very annoying. Rusty follows me but really just needs to be within eye sight of me. If I go get the mail and he's not invited he will patiently watch me from the window. I do however enjoy him laying with me on the couch or bed. I love having him near, it's one of the traits I love about GSD.
