Is there an absolutely, but "Only if other dogs, birds, rabbits, and small rodents aren't around" option?

my dog can be in the same room but he doesn't have to be close.
we can move from room to room and he doesn't always follow.
if we stay up to late for him he'll go to our bedroom and either
lay on our bed or his. when we sit on the sofa he'll jump on it,
not all of the time but enough where i consider it a lot.

Yes and No lol
Bella tried to be in the same room with me. If I walk to the kitchen she eventually makes her way in there. If I am sitting int he living room she is normally at my feet or within a few feet away.
If we are outside, she runs and plays but always comes back to me. If I happen to walk away outside no matter where she is she follows. At times I need to go inside to get a toy or drink for the husband and kids and she will wait at the back door until I return.
So while she tries to be around me, she also isn't glued to my side to the point of getting in the way.

Lucky is close by most of the time.If Im upstairs he's upstairs. If Im outside he's outside but he's not velcro. He wants me in sight but he doesn't crowd.

Cooper prefers to play with my husband, but is definitely more attached to me. I can't even go to the bathroom without him following along. Whenever I move around the house, he's just a few feet behind. Thankfully he generally stays out of the way, but he's forever in sight.

Yes, Jaeger is attached to me all the time when I'm home. Follows me all over the house, from room to room and always has to be next to me. He cuddles! Tries to crawl in my lap when I get home from work for his hugs. A part of him always has to touch us somewhere. Usually has his head on my feet, . I like it, he even presses against me when I let him in from outside, as if giving me a caress. He snuggles DH, too, but I'm the one he will follow everywhere.

Aiden follows me everywhere, but doesn't really seek affection. He prefers just to know where I am and keep an eye on me, but he isn't constantly in my lap looking for attention. That said, I still can't shower by myself

Zeus pretty much HAS TO be touching me or close by ALL THE FRIGGIN TIME!!!! I go to sleep, he comes on the bed, comes to my side, he moves the covers with his mouth, lays down on his side with his back pressed really hard against me and then he will use his mouth to pull the covers back over him and he will fall asleep just like that happy as all ****.

If I am in the bathroom for any reason through the day, he MUST come and lay down next to me. Sometimes I have to stop him from climbing in the bath tub with me. When I'm showering, he has his head sticking through the curtain staring at me pretty much the entire time.



Juno only becomes velcro when she wants something i.e. pets/food/water/outside

Yes, most certainly I do. 2 of them, a female and male. Everywhere I go, especially the female. To the point of sometimes I get so tired of having her in my lap, I have to move her off.
