Why does my dog follow me everywhere?

Answer

Dogs follow their owners everywhere because their instincts tell them to stay close to their family. According to Vetstreet, following their family members is one of the first behaviors young puppies learn.

Dogs rely on their owners for safety, food and affection, so they stay near their owners whenever possible. However, according to The Independent, research has shown that dogs are capable of loving their owners, which means they enjoy being close for the sake of being close. Some dogs show fear or panic when not allowed to be with their owners, which is known as separation anxiety. This condition requires the help of a professional behaviorist, according to the Animal Humane Society.
