What makes dogs so loyal? Why do they follow you everywhere? What are the 14 other dog behaviors you should know about? How can you make your dog follow you everywhere without making him lose his mind?
These are just some of the questions people have asked me over the years. It’s a question I have been asked to answer many times, as I have spent over a decade of my life in canine companion therapy, and I’ve seen many of these behaviors up close and personal. And if there is one thing that I’ve learned over the years, it’s that this world of ours is complex.
But it isn’t complicated. Dogs follow people because they want to. If they did not, then we wouldn’t see them do it at all. Of course, most dogs are quite predictable in their actions, but not all dogs behave exactly as you might expect them to behave. Some dogs may act very different from how you would expect them to act based on their own personalities, but some dogs will follow your every move just like our pets.
The fact that we are able to communicate with our canine companions in such a way means that we must be very careful with their behavior . This doesn’t mean that we need to teach them how to behave like humans (although I hope for those who practice human-dog interaction), but instead we need to be aware that these dogs want what we want for different reasons than what is considered culturally normal or instinctual for us humans . We must learn this technology ourselves through our interactions with each other and by experiencing the world through its eyes — whether they be our pet or someone else’s — before they will become part of our world in any significant way .
It seems clear that we live in an increasingly connected world where social media and technological advancements have allowed us connect with one another in ways never before possible. Social media has also allowed us to achieve levels of connectivity beyond anything humans ever dreamed of previously — the internet itself is a technology built around connectivity , and thus has made human connection possible through communication on an unprecedented scale . But despite all this progress, we still find ourselves interacting with one another in ways that were once unimaginable , such as when an individual reaches out on Twitter for advice from somebody else . Humans may now interact via mobile apps or email , but how often do we actually interact face-to-face? We’re losing touch post-modern society .
2. Why You Shouldn’t Be Surprised When Your Dog Follows You Everywhere
But why do dogs follow us everywhere? The answer, in a word, is curiosity.
Dogs are pack animals. They like to be in groups. And they love to chase their own shadows. What they don’t like is being left out of the group. How you respond to that situation is what makes your dog the dog he or she is.
We can’t help but notice that when we’re playing with our children and our best friends, we see them immediately taking on a new role as protector or leader. When we’re playing with our dogs, something interesting happens: the dog assumes a new role as a participant in the game and takes charge of how it goes from there on out.
You might not realize it now, but there are times when you will want to lead your dog through life because he or she has been given permission to take charge; to be the master of his or her destiny (a term I picked up from the author of this article). In fact, it was only about six months ago that my wife decided that she would job share with me instead of having another baby right away after having an emergency c-section (her doctor said “she would not have been able to carry this baby all by herself”). We were both moved by her decision because we realized that she wasn’t giving up her independence for me (or anybody else) — she was giving herself back into my care and control — giving us control over where we spent our time and how she spent her days. She said “it’s an option and I know it’s not what you want but if you need me I’m ready.” It was a simple choice between two choices and one day she told me “I’m going back to work”, which meant something completely different for her than leaving work early for our daughter’s soccer game (which was also on her schedule). And again, I wasn’t surprised: after all…she had been doing exactly that for years!
3. Why Dogs Always Want Attention
Dogs don’t like to be left alone. Their instinct to care for us is why they follow us everywhere. When we walk on our own, they’re quiet, but when we look back at them, they’re following us. They also wouldn’t follow if we were holding a phone in front of them … so I suppose that explains why dogs always want attention.
It would be an understatement to say that dogs have a very high appetite for attention, and it is the main reason that many of these dogs are highly visible in public places, such as the streets and parks where people often see them.
They have an uncanny ability to recognize us from the first moment we see them. Most people don’t know what this means until they observe it themselves; however, it can be observed in many different ways:
Dogs are very good at recognizing each other from a distance . . . and almost always from up close. Most other creatures have trouble because their eyesight is poor or their vision is limited by the size of their heads or by the shape of the face they wear over their eyes (it is so hard for most dogs to look straight forward without moving their heads up and down a lot). But dogs can’t help it; there just isn’t enough room in their faces for any other way to see what’s going on around them! Plus, as a dog owner you will notice that your dog is also very good at recognizing you from far away — though not quite as good as your cat, who can spot you 100 yards away (and often more) — but still pretty darn good! Your dog will constantly look back at you when you walk past him or her . . . even if he or she doesn’t see anything interesting!
So here are 14 behaviors unique to dogs that might make you think twice before leaving your pooch on his or her own for long periods of time:
1) Some Dogs Can Walk With You From A Distance If You Hold Still While Talking To Them Some Dogs Can Walk With You From A Distance If You Hold Still While Talking To Them
2) Some Dogs Will Follow You Around While You Don’t Notice Them In Traffic Some Dogs Will Follow You Around While You Don’t Notice Them In Traffic
3) Some Dogs Follow Us Around When We’re Busy In The Back Of The Car Some Dogs Follow Us.
4. How to Get a Dog to Stop Barking at Strangers
Dogs are man’s best friend. They can guide us in difficult situations. But not all dogs are the same. Some are trained to bark at strangers or certain types of food, while others bark at anything that moves.
The qualities that make a dog smart, though, have nothing to do with barking. Agility is one such trait.
But as nature intended, it is up to you to teach your dog these skills, so he doesn’t become a burden on your life.

Dogs follow you everywhere. But why? And what can you do to stop them from doing it?
Dog behavior experts break down the various dog behaviors that come in handy, whether by their actions or their presence. They also explain why dogs follow us everywhere and where we might be able to do something about it.
6. How Dogs Interact with their owners
Dogs are intelligent beings, but their most fascinating behavior is the one that makes us question the limits of their intelligence.
Dogs and their owners interact in a number of ways. Some, such as play and cuddling, are clear and simple. Others, such as grooming, are complex enough to require scientific studies to understand them fully.
As a pet owner, you probably have some idea of what your dog is thinking while they follow you everywhere. But you may not realize what they’re feeling when we humans create these relationships with our pets.
In this article , we break down some of the behaviors dogs demonstrate in an attempt to connect with their owners and show them how they can make life more enjoyable for both of you.
However dogs’ behaviors are not limited to humans — they also engage in behaviors that relate to other animals . For example: dogs follow humans when running from predators or pursuing prey , or when playing games . Even if dogs have been domesticated for thousands of years , certain behaviors remain at least as universal today as they were thousands of years ago .
