When i am home, most of the time i am in front of my laptop. My dog stays just beside my chair. When i'm bored i go to my keyboard and guitar space to play a song or two, he is there again just watching me. And when i go to the couch ready to take a nap or watch TV then he will follow me. He never leaves my side. Is this still normal for a dog?

I know dogs are loyal pets. But i guess this is too much. This is the first time that i have a dog that is so close to me. Even sleep with me. Seems like he is human lol.

@hereandthere he kept on barking at anyone coming in the house. If its my family, he still do barks when they come inside but especially when they are leaving. It seems that he doesn't want them to go. Funny when family is here in the house he would stay in their side than on mine. When my sister brings her dog, he hides under the table. He is a snob. But there's one dog that he is friend with, a neighbor's dog. That proves he is choosing company.

If he is a new pet then he is just curious about you and is looking for bonding. :-)

it is, for me dogs are naturally clingy, especially the friendlier breeds

@lady1993, thank you I am just thinking that maybe i gave too much attention and caring to him that he doesn't want to go far from me.

I think so. He is just missing you and being sweet. My dogs were like that before.,
