Very attached to me....

Not sure if this should go in the behaviour forum or here. Please move if need be.

Anywhoo... Zeva is starting to become totally up my butt and following me around every step. I went to take a shower this morning so I could go to the dr's.. *sinus infection, blahh* and She sat outside the bedroom door and whinnied the whole time. She also does this when I have to do laundry or potty, what ever. When I do walk around the house, she's right on my heels.

Is this because I'm home w/ her all day? She also really doesn't like me leaving and thinks every time i get my coat on, she's coming w/ me. Am I making bad habits w/ her?

Is this normal? She's like MY dog... she loves me the mostest, hubs the 2nd. She loves the kids too, watches them like a hawk. Sadie was attached to me and so was Pepper. Lady would look at me but never followed me around anywhere. She was more my hubs dog and well.. she was just too lazy to do much of anything.

My dog does the same. Its a GSD thing I think. He will NEVER let me out of his sight or let someone hold his leash & let me walk away. He is VERY well adjusted & confident. He just likes being with his mommy!

Kilo- GSD

My wife says Bear whines when I leave for work at nights. She pouts that the bond isn't the same between Bear and her. Who could blame him, she crates him when she goes to bed, but I get to spring him from jail when I get home in the mornings! We're having a slight problem in OB class with recalls, if one of the trainers holds him, he squirms and whines until she lets him go, but if I put him in a down stay, he'll wait for me to call him and then he'll run right to me. The trainer said he's a Daddy's boy! It's gotta be a "GSD thang" lol

Damian has to be near me all the time, unless we are out in the yard. I leave the door cracked when I take a shower because he always wants to lay down next to the shower, haha. This usually ends with him jumping on the glass because he wants me out of the "dangerous waterfall".

well I"m surprised she was OUTside the bathroom door, vs INSIDE ))

I have always had clingy (nosey) Gsd's. Masi has been no different, if I'm in the shower, she's laying outside the tub, or occasionally, pushing the curtain back and wants "in")

I wouldn't worry about it, (some find it annoying,) I find it flattering that they want to be with us so much)

Well, if I let her in the bedroom, she gets into all of the laundry that I never have time to finish. Her personal fav is socks... doesn't matter who's and if they are clean or dirty.

Socks don't hold a candle to tissues and paper towels.

Or me. Today she was jumping and chewing on me and when she bounced away the last time I heard her chewing on something. I couldn't figure out what it was. I opened her mouth, because I want her to know that I can when ever I want and sometimes need to remove stuff she has in there, and still didn't find anything.

Still, she's chewing... then she spits out one of her canine's lol. Every day this week we've found one of her teeth. She's gonna need dentures soon LOL.

When they get their fangs, THAT'S when they look like big dogs and not puppies.

A crate comes in very handy for times like you described above. I would get her use to spending some alone time. It will help her in the long run.
Cool that you got some of her teeth! Usually they swallow them! I was lucky to get a few of Karlo's, too. I have 13 of Onyx's.
I have a sinus ache right now, too-feel your pain.
I just tried to take a nap and had 3 pair of eyes on me the whole time. The whining started in after about 10 minutes, Mom never naps during the day! Oh, well...I love that they want to be around me so much!

Better on your heels than under your knee!

Morgan is less velcro than Otto. I'd noticed what I thought was some strange teenage thing with the laundry baskets that he had to get between me and the basket on the stairs.

Nope. I messed up my knee 2 weeks ago and figured out it has nothing to do with the laundry baskets, this dog is constantly stuck to me!!! He keeps pushing on that bad leg - which of course is on my left side - heel position. Ouchies, how is that going to heal up...
