Sure he does! In fact, I haven't been able to shut my bathroom door for 22 years! First it was my two children then it was dogs...I wonder why the dogs get so upset? Do they think there is a secret exit there that we will use and they'll never see us again?!

My kids were just the same. Privacy goes out of the window when you have little kids.

I remember showering with the baby there just outside the tub, strapped in a baby seat. After all these years of no privacy, it wouldn't bother me to have a bathroom with no door. I'm used to being on display! However, all that lack of privacy has produced two very self-confident and fearless young men so it was worth it!

If I don't let the dog in with me ,he'll cry about it.I usually make him get out when I'm done because I have an extra small bathroom and there really isn't any room to move around.He'll lay down while I take my shower.

My dog also stands watch while I shower. Afterward, he has to dry my feet off and lick the shower dry! My female dog rarely follows me around but Gus is a mama's boy!

No my dog stops at the door as long as I am his viewing area. He has to follow me every place I go. He does this for the same reason your dog follows you. He wants your attension. U didn't mentions if u had another dog or not. When I get home from wherever I was at he wants to go for a walk or go outside with me to play in the backyard, totally fenced in so he can have fun. When I get him and her exausted they are satisfied untill I head for the door, unless it is time for work, then all they want to do is go out to do their thing. Then when I get home from work the outside therory comes into effect. REMEMBER ALWAYS LUV/ CARE FOR YOUR DOG/ PET, THEY WILL ALWAYS LUV U ..

He like to curl up in a ball on the floor of the bathroom til I'm all done.I think it's cute,but when I'm done I have to kick him out,because I have a very small bathroom and need all the room.He loves to follow me around the house.If he stopped I would miss it.

I have a cat who follows me all over the house. When I go for a shower Moomin will sit outside the shower stall and wait for me to come out. If I go for a bath, he curls up on the floor and waits for me to get out of the bath then he jumps onto the side of the bath to watch the water go down the plughole.

I have a dog that follows me everywhere, I have a cat that follows me to the hospital as well. I don't know why they do it, but they do. It's rather annooying at times though, then there are times I Just don't care. ha.

Yes, everywhere actually. My dog is still a puppy and he just follows me everywhere I go. He sleeps on my armpit area or sometimes on my neck. When he gets scared, he runs to me as if he wants me to protect him. My siblings tell me that my puppy treats me like I'm his mommy since he is still a puppy. He plays rough on my siblings but not with me, he is always so sweet with me and not with my siblings or other people. I mean he is really charming and his looks could really kill, LOL I mean he is just so adorable that you are so hooked to him not knowing that he could be really mean to you as well, but not really, he's just a puppy, what could he possibly do? Anyway, yes he follows me all the time, sometimes carrying his chew toy and play with me. He is just so energetic.

Our dog used to when we first got her . She was worried we were going to leave her I think. My kids used to do it when they were very little. I couldn't move without one of them wanting to tag along. My cat is a completely different being, he will go where he wants and do what he wants. He has tried the bathroom door a few times but he never goes in there. Maybe the echoes are too creepy.

Hahahaha. My dogs would follow me to the door of the bathroom, cause they know they are not allowed inside. They will wait outside the door until I finish what I was doing. Sometimes, I would hear them pawing the door, or smelling the corners of the door ( maybe checking if I'm still there? LOL ).. And after I get out of the bathroom, they would follow me wherever I go.. hahaha. It's like always having two bodyguards wherever I go. I just love them.

Our new puppy was doing that with my husband, but I didn't let him come in with me. I finally found out my husband was doing it and had him stop it also. The dog needs to learn his boundaries.

My dogs follow me everywhere in the house and they try their best to follow me to the bathroom also, however it is a small bathroom and one of my dogs is 220 pounds so she could not fit in there at all. It's a wonderful thing that the dogs want to follow their owners around ,but sometimes it is difficult to move or have any peace. I also do not step over my mastiff, because if she gets up quick I am going for a ride. Comes down to go in shut the door and believe me your dog will still be waiting outside the door when you come out.
