|gurlonfire2004||My pup isn't cuddly either. She follows me around everywhere, and she hates if I leave the room. She will kiss me and sit near me and play with me and bite me, but she won't cuddle. This is as close to cuddling as she gets: laying on my bed.|

|ilivenanigloo||Lupa's certainly not cuddly, but is a velcro dog. Our first 3 nights together, she slept on top of my feet. Thereafter, she would lay with me 10 minutes and hop on the floor. She always wants to be with me and know what I am doing, but cuddling doesn't go further than demanding I scratch her ears. There have been some precious few occasions where she lay next to me and put her head in my lap.|

That being said.. some aren't cuddly.. Titan was never a cuddle bug. It played mind tricks with me because, like you, all my dogs before him had been attention seeking, cuddle bugs! Titan is a "If you pet me, we better play after" dog. He would follow me everywhere, but lay at a distance. If I went to pet him, he wiggled away and brought me a toy. I just learned that's how he shows affection.
It's only been recently (4 years old now) that he has started small cuddle routines Morning snuggle time, and wiggle butt when I get home.. just within the last year though.

|Msmaria||It changes somewhat. Mine was like yours but as our bond grew he became more cuddly. He still prefers the others side of the couch but has his days when he wants to snuggle. Hes very affectionate , licks alot and always nudging me with his nose when we are out for walks. Loves to come and rub up against me like a cat.and will shove his head under my arms legs etc. Loves his belly rubs and will melt like a puddle on the floor groaning when hes getting scratches. Hes just not the kind of dog that will climb into your lap everytime you sit down.(like my maltipoo)|

Depends on the dog too. Training, playing, and working with your pup creates a deep bond, which doesn't always result in cuddly affection. My first pup was very aloof and didn't seem to need a lot of physical contact; my current pup is the exact opposite. Your dog is so new to his new home and just a baby too... it'll take a little time before his personality really shines.

|RinaMarie||Thanks, everyone!!! That makes me feel better. I've purchased some of the leerburg DVD's on puppies, and I'm looking forward to purchasing a few more so I'll definitely be working with him more and more as time goes on.|

I know some pups are definitely more standoffish than others, but also I know it's never something you can't work on. You just gotta be patient as well and not push the pup too hard which can negate your efforts.

|Blanketback||IME, no they're not cuddly. They sleep and when they wake up they want to play and then they get tired and sleep some more, lol. I've heard other people say theirs are cuddly though, so who knows. Mine became cuddly after they were about a year old, but still nothing like the really cuddly dogs I've known. I think they're too busy to cuddle, lol.|
