Do You Have A Velcro Dog

Who up here has a velcro dog? Most of my dogs have been 'velcroy' to some degree or another.

Yes, she is with me all the time whether its following me or laying down very close to where I am. She will do stuff on her own, sleep away from me, and play, but once I start moving around so does she. She even guards the bathroom door

Yes, Joey is a velcro dog. He's very attached to my husband.

We've never let him out of his fenced-in area off leash, but yesterday, my husband decided to let him out while we were trimming hedges in the driveway. He sat in the garage for a while, watching us; as soon as my husband moved closer to the front of the house, Joey started moving up. He did not let my husband out of his sight.

Yes, he's not glued to my side like Jazzy is but he stays in whatever room I'm in and when we're on off leash walks he's always watching to see where I am

Yes. She scratches the bathroom door when in there, lays outside the shower when i take one and rarely leaves my side. I hear she's much more balanced when I'm not home.

Definitely. He follows us around everywhere and he is great off-leash in the yard while we're playing with him, or even just sitting on the porch. He has never shown any interest in trying to leave the yard, but stays right with us.

Yes, almost too much.

I took her for a walk with a friend at a conservation area this weekend. She barked the whole time because my friends dogs would run out of sight and she wanted to follow, but she wouldn't leave me.

Also, doing restrained recalls, she freaks because someone is holding her back from me. Leaving her at daycare is getting easier, but I still have to sneak out when she's not looking and she's glued to me at home.

She even lays on the bath mat when I have a shower

I do like that she's so attached to me, but I wish she'd cut the strings just a little!

Yes, but he isn't our GSD. Nita is a good mix of loving yet not too clingy. Koda, has to touch someone.
