Why are some dogs so clingy?

Posted on June 16, 2016 at 8:14 am

Some dog owners are surprised by the amount of affection received from their dog during the early stages of their relationship. You may spend hours and hours each day with them to begin with but of course over time when the dog is more comfortable in his or her surroundings, they’ll be able to spend time on their own. That’s not the case for all dogs though, and some dog owners let their dog rule them completely. They’ll only leave them for 1 hour max and even then they’re itching to return home. A clingy dog comes from clingy owners, and if you’re firm to start with, your dog will pick up on that. If his sad puppy dog eyes still work, he’ll continue to do so If he gets what he needs from you, meaning he’ll never leave your side. And that can be quite frustrating.
