Chevelle (6 months old) will now just plunk down outside of the bathroom door (if she didn't make it inside in time) and my downstairs bath opens outward so its a little shoving battle to get her to stand up as she is holding the door closed laying her 50 pounds there.. lol!

Daisyline Idk if that's protective behavior or that he is timid of new people so clings to me. Any input?

Daisyline My pup could care less about new people as long as I'm around he just looks at them doesn't move, doesn't bark... Just stares. For example When The cable guy came over today and the door bell rang he ran to the door then just sat and kept looking at me then the door then back at me like "hey are you going to get that" When I opened the door he didn't get over excited or even seemed interested in the guy he just came up to me and sat on my feet staring at the cable guy. Like saying this is my mommy. And would not leave my side when the cable guy was in the house (which is what I want ) but as soon as the cable guy left he went right back to playing with his ball.

SunCzarina The puppy love of strangers does pass. Otto was a gregarious pup too. Now, he could not be bribed to care less if anyone wants to meet him. Unless they're a culinary arts student from JWU and female, LOL he knows the uniforms and likes the young ladies who smell like food.

TigervTeMar my puppy is super excited to meet strangers but I don't mind because he clings to me like glue for the other 99% of the time. I'm sure that he'll become aloof to new faces later so I can forgive his momentary puppy adoration of strangers like I'm not there

gurlonfire2004 My pup is almost 5 months old. She was pretty interested in strangers when she was really young. But I think that she has been kind of stand-offish for the last 8 weeks or so. If someone approaches her too quickly and aggressively, she'll back up and bark. If they stop and hold out their hand, then she will slowly come over to sniff and then lick and get pet IF they don't make any sudden movements before the sniff. So, no, my puppy is not like that. :-)

ZoeD1217 My puppy is 14 weeks and behaves as though she NEEDS strangers to pet her in order to survive. She freaks out. Unless she's in the car and then she barks and growls at people outside the car. She also pees when she meets new people. yay
