I'm afraid my dog is too attached. what should I do?
I just adopted a dog 3 weeks ago. I think his previous owners used to hurt him because he is very jumpy. But he wont go anywhere without me. when I leave for work, he cries from the minute I leave to the minute I get back. He also doesn't sleep well. he like to sleep in the bed with me, but everytime I move he jumps up because he thinks I'm about to leave. I know he doesn't sleep well because of it. I'm really worried about his sleeping habits. He also wont eat unless I go downstairs with him. Yesterday I got in from work and found him laying on a pair of my jeans and he was chewing on a pair of my undies. He is 2 years old..what do I do.? I don't want him to have to depend on me. He's a Yorkie if it matters.
