My 7 month old male follows me every where also. If I close the bathroom door when I come out he's laying there waiting for me.

I guess I got a little off subject there..fact is ..where I go Sib goes...I like it that way most times...same behaviour as most of you have mentioned..waiting outside the bathroom door etc..sorry for the misdirection...

That's a Shepherd ! Alll of mine follow me around all the time. When I go to the bathroom they are both waiting outside the door and then follow me to where I am. They are VERY loyal dogs and LOVE for their owners...a real Velcro dog, as they say!

The Velcro nature actually appeals to me. I am a patient advocate (private), and part of my goal is to have my GSD come to work with me. Once I get to know my girl, of course.

I wouldn't want to have a dog that didn't want to be with me. In fact, if they didn't follow me, I would become the velcro because I don't trust them in another room by themselves until they are OLD. *grin*

Spirit follows me everywhere also. If he's sleeping and I leave the room, he wakes up and follows me. I always know where he is and, except for when I'm away from home, he always knows where I am.

I like it that way

Wolfie just turned 3 years old, and he follows us everywhere. If I don't let him in the bathroom with me, he pretends that there is someone at the door, to make me come running out. I only fell for that twice. LOL!

Yep, in the span of about 5 minutes this morning, Spirit chewed up the toilet paper roll, the plunger and my bath sponge.

Jerry follows me everywhere. I thought of this thread last night when I was bringing hot water from the bathroom to the kitchen (dishwasher is broken and being fixed today, we had to turn the hot water in the kitchen off to pull it out and I needed to wash dishes) and he followed me back and forth for all four trips. Even if he looks super comfortable on his bed, he'll still get up and follow me if I leave the room. He's pretty good about staying out of the way, for such a big dog.
